A throne for the queen
The audience chamber is the most representative room in Queen Charlotte Mathilde's apartment. Royal architect Nikolaus Friedrich von Thouret decorated it in 1806, based on the design of the king's audience chamber. The platform on which the queen's throne resides is one step lower than that of the king's. And yet, the queen's audience chamber still conveys a sense of authority. This is in part thanks to the elegant throne canopy and the luxurious original red silk wall covering.
