Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode five below.

The shocking destruction of King's Landing by Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones' latest episode seems to have been predicted by The Simpsons two years ago.

According to the Sun, a 2017 episode of The Simpsons, titled The Serfsons, saw the titular family enter into a cartoon parody of Game of Thrones.

The episode depicted a medieval version of Springfield, with jokes about The Night King, Jaime and Cersei Lannister's relationship and Daenerys' dragons.

But one scene has caught the attention of fans after Monday's episode of Thrones; the Simpson family watch from afar as a dragon burns their home town to the ground.

The shot bears a striking similarity to Daenerys' attack on King's Landing.

Daenerys' attack confirmed a theory that the mother of dragons would become "The Mad Queen", echoing her father's murderous tendencies.

It comes after fans reported that The Simpsons also reportedly predicted Donald Trump becoming the President of the United States. That episode of The Simpsons aired in 2000, 16 years before Trump won the USA presidency.
