The Eternal Palace was the palace of Queen Azshara.[1]

The palace rested on a cliff overlooking the Well of Eternity, in the city of Suramar. When first the vast, walled edifice had been constructed, using magic that melded both stone and forest into a single, cohesive form, it had been a wonder to touch the heart of any who saw it. Its towers were trees strengthened by rock, with jutting spires and high, open windows. The walls were volcanic stone raised up, then bound tightly by draping vines and giant roots. The main palace at the center had originally by the mystical binding of more than a hundred giant, ancient trees. Bent in together, they had formed the skeleton of the rounded center, over which the stone and vines had been set.[2]

It was destroyed in the Great Sundering, but Queen Azshara ordered a palace built in Nazjatar to rival her old home.[3] The so-called "Dragon Isles" may be this new palace.

NotesEdit

Though it had a prominent role in the War of the Ancients Trilogy, the palace was never given a proper name. Instead, it was usually just called "the palace", or the like. The name "Eternal Palace" comes from Shadows & Light.

While the War of the Ancients Trilogy described the palace as being in Zin-Azshari, Shadows & Light describes it as being in Suramar. For more info on this see this section.
