'Grave of Thrones'

'Grave of Thrones' has been erected by a Television company to mark the coming of the eighth and final season of 'Game of Thrones', which is one of the most popular TV series across the world. 

The pop-up display in Centennial Park features 34 mock gravestones, statues, monuments and mausoleums honouring Game of Thrones characters who have died ahead of the showing of the last series of the medieval fantasy show. 


House of Stark

There is a family mausoleum for the House of Stark for lost Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark and his son Rickon, alongside Catelyn, Robb, and Talisa - all three murdered in the Red Wedding by Walder Frey's men. 

The names of dead Direwolves are also there. 


Oberyn Martell

Oberyn Martell, nicknamed "the Red Viper" due to his preference for red clothing, was the youngest brother of Prince Doran Martell, the ruler of the southern principality of Dorne. 

Oberyn was Tyrion Lannister's champion in the trial by combat, a trial Tyrion was facing for killing King Joffrey Baratheon, also his nephew. 

In that combat, Oberyn died fighting Gregor Clegane, aka Mountain and failed to take revenge of his older sister Elia's death.



Shae was a prostitute, who came to the King's Landing along with Tyrion Lannister after starting an exclusive relationship with him. 

After Tyrion got married to Sansa Stark under odd circumstances, Shae was made a maid of Sansa's so that she can continue to be close to Tyrion.

But Shae betrayed Tyrion by lying that he conspired with Sansa to murder King Joffrey and Lord Tywin. 

Tyrion strangled Shae to her death when he found her sleeping with his father Tywin. 


King Joffrey Baratheon

Joffrey Baratheon was the second Baratheon king to sit on the Iron Throne. 

He was poisoned to death in the popular Purple Wedding, an event that was organised to celebrate his wedding to his new queen, Margaery Tyrell. 

Joffrey was actually a bastard born from Cersei's incestuous relationship with her twin brother, Ser Jaime Lannister. 


Tywin Lannister

Lord Tywin Lannister, the father of Cersei, Jaime, and Tyrion, was the head of House Lannister and Hand of the King for three different kings. 

He was killed by his youngest son Tyrion.
