Fit for a king
The Throne of Charlemagne is located inside the chapel on the upper level and is made from marble from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Mounted on four pillars, the throne has a gap that allowed for pilgrims to pass through underneath as a sign of humility. Although it wasn’t used for Charlemagne’s coronation, it was used for 31 other kings of Germany until the mid-16th century.
