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.
