The Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur is a castle which is situated on the posh island in the sacred river called Fulltrui Flow which is known since time immemorial as Embassy Isle. It is named after the patron saint of the Empire of the Alexandrians and since quite recently houses the Embassy of the Free Associative Kingdom of Constancia, after having housed the Imperial Alexandrian Embassy for several years.

Very ironically the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was built by the famous Storish Lady Architect Lady Ingibjörg de Béthune of the House of Ydermure for the Alexandrian Count Benedict Carvajal who is the late father of Henry Carvajal, the late Henryist pretender to the Alexandrian Throne. Count Benedict had it built as his pied à terre in the Imperial City of Haraldsborg, the capital of the Lands of the Longships Throne.

Shortly after the failed Henryist coup attempt - viscious terrorist attacks which led to a bloodbath in in the Alexandrian cities of Geneva, Markion and Wesloderia - the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was seized as a terrorist asset by the Imperial Storish Government. The castle's keep has held a number of Henryist prisoners who were later dispatched to Old Gaol Isle, Stormark's prison island where they remain to this very day.

Following its confiscation by the Imperial Conference at the Vanadísarhall the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was handed to the Imperial Government of Alexandria by the aforementioned Storish Ruling Council. The latter subsequently, in the Month Breidablikk of Year 14, designated the aforesaid castle its embassy in the High Realm of Stormark which it remained until the Month Breidablikk of Year 16 when it reverted back to the Imperial Government of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms after the Empire of the Alexandrians' very tragic departure from Reikistjarna.

In the Month Glitnir of Year 16, the Imperial Storish Government handed the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur to the Royal Government of the Free Associative Kingdom of Constancia to serve as its embassy in the Lands of the Longships Throne. [1]
