The Royal Palace of Eternia is the central seat of power for the Royal Family and the Eternian government. Several different variations of the palace have appeared in various media. It is located in the city of Eternos, and has been the seat of the government of Eternia for the most part since the reign of King Jarod, with the Great Wars being an exception, when for most of three centuries the Royal Palace was occupied by King Hiss and his Snake Men.
The palace made an appearance in the DC comics, in which it was depicted as a typical medieval castle of relatively modest size, with an interior not unlike that of other castles of the Middle Ages.
Filmation SeriesThe palace figures prominently in many episodes of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and is often the first location seen in many episodes. It is located in the city of Eternos, near Mount Eternia, and seems to sit on the edge of a large cliff. The exterior of the palace is circular, and it has a similar appearance to a large dome with sections that bear some resemblance to spokes of a wheel. The palace and the surrounding city all seem to be built in generally the same style, though there seem to be traces of ancient architecture near the palace as well. The entire complex has an orange-ish, terra cotta like hue.
A number of notable facilities exist in the palace. Some of these include;
- The storage bay for various vehicles and weapons.
- The throne room.
- The royal dining hall.
- The palace dungeon.
- Man-At-Arms's workshop.
- Training facilities for the Royal Guard.
- Various museums.
- The offices of Melaktha, the royal archaeologist.
- The energizer chamber. (This is located beneath the palace, and is essentially the power plant for all of Eternia, except the territories of the villains.)
The residents of the palace include Prince Adam, King Randor, Queen Marlena, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Orko, Cringer, Chef Alan, and the Royal Guard. Ram Man if often seen at the palace, though it is unclear if he resides there or is simply visiting.
The palace has gone through many changes over several thousand years, but it has apparently remained in the same location for that period of time.
