Hear ye, hear ye, royal subjects: Behold, a list of castles for sale that would inspire envy even in the (heaving) bosoms of the "Game of Thrones" cast.

In fact, the HBO fantasy returns on April 24 for its sixth season -- and the news keeps getting better (unless you're Jon Snow): You can live like a king or queen without going through all that "you win or you die" nonsense. And you don't even need to move to Westeros. Nope, these fortresses can be found in the good ol' USA.

In honor of the return of the epic HBO drama, we're showcasing places to park your own Iron Throne. Simply scroll down to find just the one that royally suits you.

Hankering for a turreted stone building in upstate New York? That's available. Or perhaps you'd prefer your castle made of concrete and located in the wilds of Wisconsin? It's on the market as well. A "magic kingdom" in Ben Lomond, CA, includes a dungeon with a wet bar to entertain the realm.

Hey, they say your home is your castle. Why not make it the real thing?
