Game of Thrones is an HBO series that tells the story of a medieval country's civil war. The series, which premiered in April 2011, is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos in a world where seasons stretch on for years.

In show parlance, "sit on the Iron Throne" is a metonym equivalent to "rule Westeros." Read more here.
