|Imperial throne room|
The throne room of the Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center on Coruscant served as the public seat of the Galactic Emperor from the foundation of the Galactic Empire in 19 BBY at the end of the Clone Wars. Serving only as a temporary home for the throne while the formal residence was prepared at the newly named Imperial Palace, Emperor Palpatine abandoned the throne room upon moving to the Palace.
Following the ruination of the suite of offices used by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine in the Republic Executive Building during the duel with Jedi Master Mace Windu, recently-titled Galactic Emperor Palpatine moved his residence to the nearby Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center; a secretive facility atop the Coruscant Medical tower.
Meeting with members of the Imperial Senate and his Imperial Ruling Council, the Emperor made use of the throne room extensively during his first year of galactic ruler. Use of the facility was not to be permanent; Palpatine had already begun construction on his new throne room at the nearby Imperial Palace and, upon its completion, would take up residence within.
Constructed below the Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center in the upper levels of the Coruscant Medical tower, the Emperor's throne room was a long and narrow chamber that resembled the holding office located below the Grand Convocation Chamber in the Senate Rotunda. A wide but short burnished staircase bisected the room into two levels, with the upper level dais replete with long permaplas windows. A pair of the Emperor's Royal Guards were to stand at attention at the staircase's foot. Behind the Guard stations was a table for Palpatine to meet with his Imperial Advisors, and behind that table stood his large mechanized throne, integrated with the building's communications and computer systems.
As his old offices were in ruins in the Republic Executive Building, Palpatine ordered the removal of most of his Sith statuary and artwork and had it transferred to his new throne room. Flanking the door and windows were the bronzium statues of the Four Sages of Dwartii and the Massassi frieze recounting the Great Hyperspace War adorned the walls. Directly above the throne room in the restricted Reconstruction Center was the Dark Lord of the Sith's private meditation chamber and repositories of the dark side of the Force knowledge banks.
