The Orzammar Royal Palace is the residence of the royal family of Orzammar as well as a meeting place for the nobles. It is built around a natural lava vent[1] and is located within the Diamond Quarter. It is also the opening location for the Dwarf Noble Origin.


The palace has several locations within it which can be of interest to the Warden. In the hall several nobles who are supporting the royal House Aeducan can spoken to. On the western side of the building, prior to entering the throne room, the Warden will find the living quarters for the royal family. To the east the Warden will find a series of halls and rooms with locked chest and storage spaces, and most importantly a black vial containing a revenant. On the northeastern room, which was formerly the residence of Prince Trian Aeducan the Warden will find one of their assassination victims there as part of the third part in The Trial of Crows quest.

The first room as you face when entering the palace, is the throne room. The Warden can summon a dragon within these halls as part of the Caged in Stone quest.
