Many have seen my crown,
but none have seen my throne.
I have hundreds in my harem,
but none of them is my own.

My people work from sunrise to sunset,
just as I commanded.
And sometime I just sit on the roof
and watch where the dandelions landed.

I think it is

A rooster

Many has seen my crown, but none have seen my throne.

A rooster has a crown on it's head, but no throne

I have hundreds in my harem, but none of them is my own.

All the hens in the "harem" belong to the farmer, not the rooster.

My people work from sunrise to sunset, just as I commanded.

The rooster crowing at sunrise used to be the alarm for the people to wake up and start working.

And sometime I just sit on the roof and watch where the dandelions landed.

Weather vanes on the top of barn roofs are sometimes shaped like a rooster. They point in direction of wind, and the dandelions will land in the direction of wind. So they see the dandelions land.

And now I'm sitting in my Frozen Chamber

The rooster is culled and put in a freezer.

    $\begingroup$ Also the dandelions line works because it points towards the direction of the wind $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ "And now I'm sitting in my Frozen Chamber" could mean he's now been culled and put in the freezer $\endgroup$
