Who will win the Game of Thrones? And how?

With the final series underway, fan theories are hitting fever pitch.

Could Daenerys end up sitting on the Iron Throne? What about her lover-slash-nephew, Jon Snow? And what of that whack Littlefinger theory?

Now, you have a new incentive to name your pick - correctly guess how the final series will end, and you could win a holiday with Unforgettable Croatia.

It's a clever marketing wheeze - much of the hit HBO show is set in Croatia, and the prize promises to include a luxury tour of filming locations.

They could include the old town of Sibenik, home to Braavos and the Iron Bank, or Dubrovnik - which doubled as King's Landing. Qarth (Dubrovnik) and the Westeros Riverlands (Krka National Park) are also in Croatia.

To be in with a chance of winning, entrants must share their predictions for how the series will end between April 14 and May 5 at unforgettablecroatia.com/game-of-thrones-competition.

In true George R. R. Martin style, you can be wordy, too - with an upper limit of 1,000 words allowed for each entry.

The prize is a seven-night tour for two, including three nights in Split, four in Dubrovnik, five-star accommodation and a speed boat trip to Hvar and Vis.

If no entrant predicts the correct ending, the UK tour operator will select  its favourite prediction from the entries submitted.

The catch? Flights are not included.

Dragons, anyone?
