The Emperor's throne room was a formal room in the Imperial Palace of Coruscant that contained the throne of the Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine. The throne itself was raised four steps above the floor and, while massive, was solid black and unadorned. At the side of the chamber, there was a garden area that the Emperor had designed himself. While small, the garden contained a variety of plants, most of which grew in pots or in floor trenches lining curved flagstone walkways. Small trees that stood at its periphery and the distance from garden to throne ensured a degree of privacy.
