I believe the throne of Queen Beatrix was ordered by her grandmother, Queen Wilhelmina. It is only used for the opening of parlament. For the actual enthronement thy use other chairs/thrones. In anexhibition I have seen a set of thrones of King Willem III (terribly ugly, neo-gothic style) and of King Willem II.

the most excentric throne of the 20th century:
Emperor Bokassa of the Central African Empire's Imperial Eagle throne

Although he was inspired in Napoleon, his throne looks more like a pigeon coming out of a pineaple than an imperial eagle! :p

I actually really love the thrones of Canada. The dark wood and red fabric is really beautiful and makes an impact.

I agree Princejohnny. They're beautiful yet very elegant. Not vulgarly brilliant, that would be quite un-Canadian. Ofcourse it's also because the Queen doesnt live here. I have seen beautiful pictures from long ago when Queen Elizabeth made her speech from the throne in Ottawa. I'll try to find it.

Those are very nice, thank you for the pictures. My favorites are the Danish, Norwegian thrones. The British weren't as pretty as I thought they'd be.

I dont think they actually use the danish ones anymore. Someone correct me if Im wrong. I love the coronation throne of Great Britian. The Irony of a monarch being consecrated and crowned on a old beaten down chair that has graffiti all over it is so ironic and poetic to me.

British monarchs are crowned while seated on the Coronation Chair, which is sometimes (incorrectly?) called a throne.

Great links, magnik, this one got my attention because of the square cut out above the seat of the chair so the Tsars' sister can give them 'advice'. I can only imagine the curious puppeter-like ceremonies of these two characters: he seated in front of government with his sister's head popping out of that square hole, or maybe her arm in case she needed to sign a document too. Reminds me of the 'hand' in the Adams' Family TV show.

October 14, 1957 - Making history, Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first reigning monarch to open a session of the Canadian Parliament as she reads a speech from the throne in the Senate Chamber in Ottawa. Wearing her coronation dress, the Queen promised to recognize the "Constitutional Priviliges" of the Parliament in her address. Corbis


July 1, 1968 (Canada Day)
Original caption: Queen Elizabeth listens attentively from her throne during Ecumenical services which were held on Parliament grounds in Ottawa. Corbis


The throne seen from a distance in the Senate room of the Houses of Parliament in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Corbis

The Throne of Canada in the Senate chamber is used only when the Queen or her Governor General speaks to the Senate. In everyday life, its Speaker presides on a chair put in front of the throne. Wikipedia

Beautiful, just beautiful. I cant wait for the opening of parliament to see them in use. The whole parliament house is very nice. I love the stained glass windows and colors. Very dramatic.
