Balon Greyjoy on the Salt Throne.

"The Salt Throne is not yours to swear upon, not unless the kingsmoot chooses you."
Aeron Greyjoy to Yara Greyjoy[src]

The Salt Throne, also known as the Seastone Chair, ​is an ancient throne of the Iron Islands, sat upon by the Kings of the Iron Islands.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Seastone Chair is located on a dais, in the Great Hall of the Great Keep on Pyke. It is made of a block of oily black stone carved into the shape of a kraken. The legend says that it was found by the First Men on the shores of Old Wyk when they came to the Iron Islands.

Although the term "Seastone Chair" is used in the books, the TV series generally prefers "Salt Throne", particularly when used as metonymically to refer to the kingship of the Iron Islands.
