The throne room

The throne room of Stormwind City is located deep within Stormwind Keep. This dome-shaped hall contains a large throne that is flanked by golden lions. The throne is known as the Lion Seat[1] and it is found in the center of the room, surrounded by the Royal Guard. The recently returned King Varian Wrynn and his son Anduin Wrynn reside here. The throne room also grants access to the map room behind it, containing the battlemasters and Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth.


During the absence of his father, Anduin Wrynn watched over the city in his fathers stead. Lady Katrana Prestor and Highlord Bolvar Fordragon aided the ten-year-old king in his rule, though many remain critical of Stormwind's interim government. Accusations of corruption within the House of Nobles ultimately led to the source of this discord, yet order and integrity was restored to the Stormwind government with King Varian Wrynn's return and the dispatching of the shadowy Lady Prestor by brave heroes.

In Patch 4.0.1, a meeting of the Alliance leaders gathers in the throne room (for the Horde version, see Grommash Hold). On the first step of the dais stands a semi-circle facing Varian Wrynn, starting from the left: High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind, High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque, King Magni Bronzebeard, a curiously empty space where another person could stand, then Lady Jaina Proudmoore and Prophet Velen.
