The Lion Throne.


The Lion Throne is the ruling seat of power of Andor.[1] It is located in the Royal Palace in Caemlyn, and has golden lion paws on the feet, with the White Lion of Andor picked out in moonstones on the back.[1][2] The White Lion is also displayed on the front above the queen's head, again in moonstones but within a field of rubies.[3]

The throne is sized for a woman, and no man can sit in it comfortably.[4] As a result of the throne's scaling, Rand al'Thor brought in his own throne to use and placed the Lion Throne on a pedestal behind his own throne. This was meant as a reminder that Elayne Trakand has yet to take the throne, but many misinterpreted it and saw the throne as a prize offered by Rand, this offended many Andorans.

The Lion Throne is alternatively used symbolically for the queenship of Andor with the Rose Crown.
