Do not read ahead if you have not seen the final episode and do not want to spoil the ending.
You have been warned!
I am way overdue announcing the winner to this contest. It was a lot more time consuming than I expected and I kept procrastinating it. I went through and triple checked the scores and made sure everything looked right. This is what took so much time and ended up using an iPhone app called Tally that allowed me to quickly just press the screen as I go down each entry. It's far too confusing to keep count while scanning so many.
Another thing is many people voted "No one" for the final answer, which is kind of difficult to really decide one. Technically no one was on the throne since it was destroyed, but Bran was named king. Deciding literally or figuratively was difficult and I really wasn't sure which was the best choice.
In the end, it did come down to this answer in choosing the winner, but luckily this user was very clear in their answer and made it a moot point.
The winner's answer to the final question:
"No one holds the iron throne. A republic, council or senate will be created."
Before I announce the scores and the winner, I want to thank everyone who contributed to the 530 Steem pool.

Thank you all for making the pot massive.
The first number is the score ignoring all answers of "no one", and the number in ( ) is accepting "no one" as a valid answer.
Congratulations @martinmcfly, you have won the 530 Steem prize.
Your prize has been transferred already. I am sorry about the long delay in going through the entries. Wasn't expecting to take this long or be so much work.
