Game of Thrones first premiered on HBO ten years ago on April 17, 2011. The show is dubbed the greatest TV show of the 21st century. The series won a total of 59 Primetime Emmy Awards. The record still stands to this day. No wonder HBO is so invested in exploring the Game of Thrones universe, with several prequels in development. HBO will celebrate a decade of Game Of Thrones with its month-long event, The Iron Anniversary. And it seems like nature has joined the celebrations as well.

Last week, Mount Fagradalsfjall erupted after 900 years of slumber 40 kilometres from the capital Reykjavik. The area has become a tourist hot spot for the weekend hikers. Thousands occasionally gather admiring the hot red glowing lava that streams into a river. Recent pictures of the visitors from the scene have now sparked jokes and humour across social media. The internet compared the breath-taking volcanic spurts and incandescent lava with a scene from the HBO drama.

Wow! Iceland knows how to volcano. From tonight! #icelanderuption #icelandvolcano #iceland pic.twitter.com/YdgcCJXdQZ

The photos of eruption scenes were captured by an aerial videographer, Brian Emfinger. Many compared its visual appeal with R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series’ Game of Thrones’ symbology that revolves around ice vs. fire. The image of the 300,000 cubic meters (10.5 million cubic feet) of lava streaming in the ice-cold region and Icelanders. Collectively reminded the internet of HBO’s screenplay, as the scenes bore resemblance with the fantasy drama.

Land of fire and ice.

HBO’s Iron Anniversary celebrations are currently underway on account of a decade of Game of Thrones. The month-long celebrations will include various events and specials related to the epic on HBO and HBO Max. The Marathrone, which began on 10th April, is already at its peak. Bryan Cogman, the writer for the acclaimed series, is busy reliving his favourite moments from the Marathrone.

He listed his favourite episodes, character-wise, on Twitter. “Okay, as promised, I’m starting my own #GoT watchlist thread after taking a look at some of the, let’s just say… interesting selections for this Iron Anniversary thing,” Cogman tweeted on Monday. “Will add to this thread throughout the week.”

Okay, as promised, I’m starting my own #GoT watchlist thread after taking a look at some of the, let’s just say… interesting selections for this Iron Anniversary thing.

Will add to this thread throughout the week.

I’m limiting replies on this for obvious reasons. Sorry.

HBO is celebrating a decade of Game of Thrones as the Iron anniversary. And a show that is dubbed the greatest TV show of the century deserves a celebration that huge. There will be month-long events and specials for Game of Thrones fans at HBO and HBO Max. The streaming giant wants to win back the audience it lost post-Game of Thrones era. Their future plans include taking a deeper dive into the Martinverse. House of The Dragon is the first step in that direction.

Fans are already hyped about the prequel series. (Of course, they would be, the title itself has dragons in it!) However, one of the key aspects of any fantastical story involving kingdoms and magic are the legendary swords. Showrunner Ryan Condal, in his podcast, The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, promised there will be more of them in the highly awaited prequel.

Ryan said, “I love swords, and particularly with this show, there are a couple of swords that are very famous to this period in history, that I really wanted to have a hand in. And I’m kind of proud to say that I was able to bring in a very specific designer who kind of does this stuff professionally, does museum recreations of existing historical swords, and is going to do a couple of the most important swords for us on the show, and that process has been so cool and fun. He’s underway and doing designs and is actually now making them.”

Which swords do you think he is talking about? Tell us in the comments below!
