Charles said it was created in 1296, so the chair is 717 years old now. Is the chair made entirely of wood or is it mixed with something else? With the exception of Kings Edward V and VIII and Lady Jane Grey, all other monarchs had sat in that chair since 1296, hadn't they?
The ruler (which one was he?) who first commissioned this chair in 1296 would be amazed if he was alive today to know it still survives to the present day.
