During a banquet at Winterfell, the 21st-century cup mysteriously appears on a table next to Daenerys.

Twitter was on it in a flash after a takeaway coffee cup made an unexpected appearance in this week's latest episode of Game of Thrones series.

In episode 4 at the post-battle banquet at Winterfell, the cup can be seen on the table next to Daenerys Targaryen.

Twitter jokes have not stopped.

The cup was flagged as being from Starbucks and the brand cleverly jumped on the bandwagon with some amusing responses.

'TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink,' referring to an item on its menu.

HBO has since responded: 'The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake, Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.

People joked about Starbucks tradition of writing customers' names on the cups...and this would have been a long name.

People with time on their hands soon created a Starbucks franchise in Westeros...
