The palace of Del is the home of the monarch of Deltora and their family. It is a large, three-story building, built by the Ralads by order of King Brandon. It stands on a hill in the centre of Del and can be seen from every part of the city.[2] Surrounded by a large wall, the entrance is well guarded and is the only way into the palace besides secret tunnels which only the Royal Family know about.



By order of King Brandon, the palace was to be constructed and built by the Ralads. When the first floor was

complete, Brandon moved into the palace, leaving the traditional home of The Royal Family, the forge, which had been the home of the heirs of Adin since the uniting of the Seven Tribes. The palace was finally completed after 40 years of building. It was built out of local sandstone and roofed with slate. The floor and internal pillars are made of marble. In the formal rooms, the ceilings are decorated with painted scenes, by Withick, of Deltora's past, the ceilings of the Great Hall and the Banqueting Hall featuring borders of pure gold.[2]

After disestablishmentEdit

During the Shadow Lord invasion the palace was his main headquarters in Deltora and home to his servants. The Place of Punishment was built, just outside, to be used for public executions of criminals.

After the restoration of the monarchy, the palace became a shelter for damaged Shadowlands survivors. [1]

Great Hall Edit


The library is located on the third floor, and can be accessed by the great stairs. The door to the library is located in a hallway at the top of the stairs, to the left. The area is barricaded by a thick silver rope. To the right another hallway runs to the back of the palace, and is also barred by a silver rope. The right side of the hallway is lined with the library storerooms, the last of which was burned by Josef years ago. The library is filled with books, papers, and documents. Both important, secret, stories, and knowledge is located in the library. The library of the palace of Del, always has a librarian, and the first one we heard of was Josef the Palace

The dining room or Banqueting Hall is a great hall containing a large table, used for feasts and dinners.

Bear Tunnel Edit

A secret tunnel only known by the royal family leads to the chapel of the palace. The entrance of the tunnel is camouflaged as a large rock appearing as a sleeping bear. The entrance is at the front feet of the bear is located (in front of its nose and face) in the earth. In the earth a little lid or plate of metal is located, and you have to open it to be able to get to the underground tunnel which is very small. You come out in the chapel, out of a hole, opened by removing a stone tile above your head (in the floor of the chapel).
