The Golden Throne is the final resting place of the Emperor of Mankind in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K setting. After receving his mortal wounds at the hand of Horus during the events of the Horus Heresy, the Emperor issued two edicts. One, which is irrelevant to the Golden Throne, called for the extermination or exile of the traitor Legions, while the second called for the creation of a stasis and upkeep chamber for his final resting place, to be known as the Golden Throne.

It was quickly constructed and he was ensconced into it, and there he rests to this day, powered by his own sheer force of personality and a constant sacrifice of thousands upon thousands of untrained psykers, sustaining him as something more than a man, but less than a god, directing the shining beacon of the Astronomicon to allow for interstellar space travel through the Warp.
