Your Palace is the seat of your government. In the very beginning of the game it provides a significant portion of your capital city's 20xGold5 Gold and 20xProduction5 Production, boosts 20xScience5 Science output, and is the only source of 20xCulture5 Culture. It also forms the heart of your empire's trading network.

At all times, the Palace is considered the seat of your government in regards to domination victory. Although the Palace is automatically rebuilt in another city if your capital is captured, it can still be a terrible blow to your civilization (and also makes you ineligible to win a domination victory until you get it back). Protect your Palace well!

Civilopedia entryEdit

A palace is the residence of a civilization's ruler. The term is somewhat anachronistic, dating back to a time when most countries were ruled by kings or other hereditary leaders. Nowadays modern rulers live in ornate buildings called something like "the People's House" or "the Place of Justice," but the effect is the same. Palaces (and their modern equivalents) are designed to do three things: to provide the ruler with access to the people and communications necessary to rule, to defend the leader from attack, and to impress upon subjects and foreign visitors the leader's importance and grandeur.
