'Game of Thrones' News: British Village Changes Name in Honor of Series Ahead of Season 4 [VIDEO]
A small village in England will be changing its name to match up with a similar-sounding location in Game of Thrones.
A village in Hertfordshire, England is changing its name to King's Landing in February, according to new reports. King's Landing is the Game of Thrones version of the capital, where royalty resides and makes decisions.
The village's actual name is Kings Langley, which is remarkably similar to the fictional Game of Thrones location. The name change will only be in effect for one week in February to coincide with the DVD release of Game of Thrones season 3.
One of the producers of Game of Thrones allegedly saw the village listed at a train station in London and came up with the idea for a temporary name change.
Game of Thrones is gearing up for season 4 in the spring. The HBO series has a lot of events in store for season 4, presuming the writers continue to faithfully adapt George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series.
The writers are adapting the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third novel in the book saga. As the third season adapted the first half of the book, fans should expect many of the story lines from season 3 to conclude in season 4.
Game of Thrones season 3 is released on DVD on Feb. 18.
Game of Thrones season 4 premieres in spring 2014 on HBO, though the network has not yet scheduled a specific premiere date.
