Naboo throne

The throne of Queen Amidala in her Naboo royal starship

Solo: "You want me to stop calling you that? Then how 'bout you stop sitting up there on your throne and judging us peasants?"
Organa: "I don't have a throne anymore. The Empire blew it up."
Han Solo and Leia Organa[src]

A throne was a ceremonial chair used by a sovereign, a high dignitary, or a similar figure of significant social status. While thrones were typically located in a formal audience room known as "throne room," royal starships would usually contain one as well—as was the case with the J-type 327 Nubian cruiser used by Queen Amidala of Naboo.[1] The Galactic Emperor Palpatine's throne, up to his death during the Battle of Endor, was a basic swivel-chair, owing to his more simple attire of a cloak.[2]

Most thrones were permanent, although some of them were mobile, allowing their users to move about while seated. Such mobile thrones included the Emperiax Walking Thrones[3] and the mechno-chairs used by the Neimoidians of high rank.[4] The Sith Lord Odion had a throne cast from beskar iron installed aboard the bridge of his flagship, the Sword of Ieldis.[5] Some thrones, such as the Neimoidian Throne monument of the Trade Federation during the Invasion of Naboo, were towering structures.[6]

The pacifist Mandalorian faction known as the New Mandalorians constructed a throne for their leader located in their capital city, Sundari, on the Outer Rim world of Mandalore. It was known colloquially as the Throne of Mandalore.[7]
