The Empty Throne is a historical seat located on Mary Geoise, inside Pangaea Castle. It is said to be located at the very center of the world.[1]Although it was accorded to have no owner in order to mantain peace between nations, it is actually owned by Im, the highest ranking World Government individual.

AppearanceEdit

Im Sits on the Empty Throne

The Five Elders kneeling before Im, the true owner of the Empty Throne and the ruler of the world.

The Empty Throne is an extremely tall, ornamented throne that bears the symbol of the World Government. The armrests are designed to look like lion head statues.

The throne itself is kept on top of a three-level platform, and has several swords and axes planted in the floor of the first and third levels, with the ones in the first being relics of the twenty founding kingdoms.

OverviewEdit

According to an employee of the World Government, the Empty Throne has existed since the Void Century, 800 years before the story's present time. Each of the twenty weapons placed around the throne are supposed to represent one of the twenty kingdoms that founded the World Government, symbolizing their protection over the seat.[1]

The false premise is that no one is allowed to sit on this throne, not even the Five Elders or the World Nobles, as its vacancy symbolizes that the world is not ruled by a single figure, sending a message of peace by making all royals equal before it. The kings and queens of the Reverie are required to pledge that they won't take the throne for themselves in greed, just like the original twenty founding kings once did.[1]

In truth, the Empty Throne is occupied by Im, a person with authority over the Five Elders.[2]

TriviaEdit

  • The concept of an unique throne surrounded by bladed weapons is similar to the A Song of Ice and Fire franchise's Iron Throne.
