The Silver Throne (Swedish: Silvertronen or Drottning Kristinas silvertron) is a throne used by the Swedish monarch at coronations, accessions to the throne and state opening of the parliament. The Silver Throne is located in the Hall of State at Stockholm Palace.[1]

The Silver Throne was made for Queen Christina to her coronation in 1650. Crafted by Abraham Drentwett in Augsburg, Bavaria, it was a gift from Count Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie.[2]
