A SECOND Game of Thrones stained glass window was unveiled at Belfast's Waterfront Hall yesterday.

It was part of a Tourism Ireland campaign to mark the eighth and final season of the hit TV series, much of which has been filmed in the north.

A total of six windows are being revealed each week at a key location in the city, to coincide with the fantasy drama unfolding on the small screen.

Each `Glass of Thrones' window on the 1.8-mile trail will highlight a key house from the show.

The second window represents the trials and tribulations of House Lannister. From Cersei's shameful walk of atonement to Tyrion's vengeance act of patricide, the window represents fans' favourite, most shared and most discussed Lannister moments.

Last week's first window, opposite the entrance to Belfast City Hall, pays tribute to House Stark - one of the series' dynasties, based in the harsh northern regions of the fictional Westeros.

Other houses that will be represented over the coming weeks include Baratheon and Targaryen, with the various windows featuring epic battles, fire-breathing dragons, ice-blue white walkers and blood-red weddings.

And the experience continues online, where Tourism Ireland will `unlock' a new window each week on its website, Ireland.com.

The organisation revealed that 70 per cent of the production of Game of Thrones has taken place in Northern Ireland.
