The Iron Throne was a mysterious mercantile organization active in the mid–14th century DR. Little was known of its history or the identity of its backers. It apparently operated independently of any government.
In 1368 DR, one operation of the Iron Throne came close to causing a war between Amn and Baldur's Gate. They orchestrated an iron shortage in the Baldur's Gate area, sabotaging the mines at Nashkel and hiring bandits to disrupt trade, blaming all of this on Amn. The Iron Throne would gain political influence in Baldur's Gate and supply the city with iron from their hidden mine in Cloakwood. However, for Sarevok, a leading member of the Baldur's Gate branch of the Iron Throne and a Bhaalspawn, this plan was nothing but a means for causing a war, which he believed he could use to his advantage to ascend to divinity as the new Lord of Murder. Both plans were ultimately foiled by Abdel Adrian.
The Iron Throne had quite a bad public image. They were charged with attempted assassinations, extortion, thuggery, trading weapons to hostile nonhuman tribes and trafficking in smoke powder, poisons, and drugs.
