A quiet English village will change its name to King's Landing as a nod to the Game of Thrones.

Kings Langley - a village in Hertfordshire - is changing its name to King’s Landing on February 17.

The local council will change some road signs in the village - in an attempt to entice fans of the HBO show to visit the village.

Seeds for the name change idea were sewn when one of the show's executive producers misheard the name of the village while waiting for a train.

King's Langley was one of the stops being announced at London’s Euston station, and it caught the attention of the show boss.

Kings Langley will become Kings Landing for a week next month to mark the release of the Game of Thrones DVD.

Kings Landing is the main city in the popular show.
