Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German thrōn, trōn, from Old French tron, from Latin thronus, from Ancient Greek θρόνος (thrónos, seat, place of honour).

Usage notes[edit]

This and other words of Greek origin were unaffected by the spelling reform that changed the "th" in e.g. Thier to "t" (Tier).
