A throne was a ceremonial chair or seat occupied by a figure of authority such as the monarch of Naboo, the Duchess of Mandalore, the members of the Bardottan Bahk-tov Council, and the Galactic Emperor. Figuratively, the term also designated the power, duties, or rank ascribed to a royal person. Aboard the second Death Star, the Emperor's throne was a large, contoured swivel chair with control panels in the arms.
