The Moonstone Palace (also Moonflower Palace) is the home of Queen Amlaruil Moonflower on the island of Evermeet. It is a huge white structure made from marble, alabaster and crystal, surrounded by the Guardian trees,[1] and situated above the city of Leuthilspar. Its features are slender towers, flying buttresses and sky bridges.[2]

AreasEdit

Dome of StarsEdit

The throne room is a high and vaulted round chamber ringed with galleries and with a huge glass dome at its top. The dome is made of theurglass and is composed of a mosaic of stained panels, which turn clear by night in order to give a view of the stars. The room has a dark marble floor.[3] The throne itself is gilded and hovers six feet from the floor.[4]

GroundsEdit

The grounds of the palace are very large, containing hedge mazes, gardens, parks and lakes.[1] The gardens are said to be blessed by the Seldarine.[5]

AccommodationEdit

The rooms of the palace are expansive and offer very good views of Leuthilspar and the ocean and forest.[1]

InhabitantsEdit

Apart from Queen Amlaruil herself, the Council of Matrons may frequent the palace, as well as Amlaruil's top magicians, who have their own towers. There are several lesser palaces in which Amlaruil's family live.[6]

Name discrepancyEdit

The palace is named as the "Moonstone Palace" throughout The Elves of Evermeet (see p. 45 for an example) but is named as the "Moonflower Palace" on page 83 of Forsaken House.
