**The Iron Throne was forged at the order of Aegon the Conqueror, the first of the Targaryen Kings, who conquered six of the seven independent kingdoms of Westeros and unified them under his rule. It’s located in the Great Hall of the Red Keep in the city of King’s Landing. The term is also used colloquially to refer to the monarchy that rules the Seven Kingdoms.
