The King's Chamber is on the third floor of Althain Tower. Behind a door of iron-strapped oak, the chamber's walls are paneled over with golden maple coloured linen with Cildorn carpet on the floor. The room contains a waxed ebony table with standing lions as its base, and dark leather chairs. Beneath the paned windows, banners from each of the High Kingdoms hang from bronze rods.
