Constance (detail from Lady Constance, Arthur and Salisbury).
This scene is from King John. Constance has learned that her allies have deserted her (to side with John). She says:

Let kings assemble; for my grief's so great
That no supporter but the huge firm earth
Can hold it up: here I and sorrows sit;
Here is my throne, bid kings come bow to it.
