Aachen Dom 3, originally uploaded by Lewis XVII.

The throne of Charlemagne in the cathedral at Aachen in Germany. It’s thought by some that the throne’s marble slabs were floor panels from a Roman-occupied territory (there are scratches in the slabs that are generally considered to be a form of Nine Man’s Morris, which Romans were known to play.

The Holy Roman Emperors who followed Charlemagne were crowned on the ground floor, then came to this balcony level to sit upon this throne in order to complete their investment.

The steps leading up to the throne are marble, and are thought to have come from temples in Rome, tying the “Holy Roman Empire” (famously not holy, not Roman, not an empire) to the original Roman empire.
