Hall 7. Ancient state regalia and ceremonial items of the 13th - 18th centuriesThe complex of state regalia displayed in the hall - crowns, sceptres, orbs - has been historically formed on the base of the Kremlin treasury’s most ancient part. Regalia were an essential part of official ceremonies, such as  ceremonial royal passages, settings for reigning, coronations of emperors and receptions of foreign ambassadors. The complex includes the well-known «Cap of Monomach». Up to the early 18th century, all the tsars had been crowned with the Cap. 

The collection of thrones of the Russian sovereigns form significant part of the complex. Here are the throne of Tsar Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov, thrones of tsars of the Romanov dynasty. The Double throne of Tsar Ivan Alekseevich and his younger brother Peter (Peter the Great) attracts by its monumentalism.
