Tutankhamun once sat in this throne 3346 years ago. He would have received guests whilst sat here, watched the evening entertainment, socialised with other members of the royal family and discussed current affairs and military tactics - all from this seat.

Found in his tomb, it was to accompany him to the afterlife so that he could enjoy eternity in lavish style.

The Ancient Egyptians invented chairs and this is surely one of the most grandiose of them all.
