The Imperial Palace is a dungeon within the Imperial City in The Elder Scrolls: Arena. It is the final location of the main questline.


The Imperial Palace is a large brown fort-like structure that resides in the far north section of the Imperial City. The palace had four red flags on top of the six visible towers, connected by one large surrounding wall.

EmperorNoTime (Arena)

The palace, for the majority of the game isn't accessible due to Jagar Tharn denying he has any free time as Emperor, which in turn forces the guards to turn the Eternal Champion away, that is until they have acquired all of the pieces of the Staff of Chaos.

Defeat Jagar Tharn and free Uriel Septim VII.
