"They blew up my father's castle and all of Alderaan with it."
―Leia Organa, to Eneb Ray[src]

The Royal Palace of Alderaan[4] also known as the Mountain Palace,[5] served as the residence of the House of Organa, the royal family of the planet Alderaan.[4] Thanks to the skills of the Alderaanian architects, the palace and the city around it blended smoothly into the local snow-capped mountains.[3] An elegant building, its design captured the opulence of royalty.[4]

One of the palace's balconies overlooked a lake.[6] Leia Organa's childhood bedroom was situated high in one of the palace's towers.[7] Bail Organa's roomy palace office had more than enough space for a desk, a few chairs, and an aquarium full of brightly colored sea creatures.[8] The palace's south terrace looked out over the River Wuitho, and the smaller villages on the outskirts of Aldera. The palace also contained a library with ancient paper books.[1]

Over the centuries the palace was inhabited, it was expanded many times. These expansions usually took the form of chambers dug ever-deeper into the mountain, resulting in a labyrinthine layout.[1]

The palace was destroyed when the Death Star, a planet-killing battle station built by the Galactic Empire, blew up Alderaan shortly before the Battle of Yavin.[2]
