(Redirected from Medal King's Castle)

The Medal King's Palace is a recurring location in the Dragon Quest series, though the name varies by installment. It is the home of the Medal King, who will exchange Mini medals for prizes.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

Known as Minikin's Dominion, it is located in the northeast corner of the map and first reachable by ship. Aside from King Minikin, the palace also contains an inn in the basement and a Teleportal on the upper floors. It's also notable for being very close to Briny Lair, where the Zenithian armour is stored.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

Known as Dominicus' Dominion, the palace sits in a moat that is lit up at night by lanterns and is first accessible by ship. The island is also a habitat for several species of slimes. In the remakes, the Medal King's Palace was added as one of the locations players could fast-travel to with the Zoom spell, which was not the case in the original SFC version.


Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

Known as Medford's Manor, the palace to the west of Haggleton. It appears in the Upper World after the Hero and company defeat the Dread Fiend Jamirus. The monster was tasked with sealing away the manor as the greater evil feared the armaments that the medal king was giving to adventurers.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

There is no formal palace; instead Cap'n Max Meddlin' operates out of a large tent in the town of Dourbridge.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

The medal collector is the headmaster Maxime Médaillé, who oversees the education of his students at L'Académie de Notre Maitre des Médailles. His lesson plan revolves around the medals, and he keeps track of the player's progress in a school stamp book. Examining one of the books of the school's library reveals that the Académie was founded by a nameless mini medal obsessed king, who whished that his daughter whould grow up loving them as much as he. Furthermore, according to a nearby slime, the shambled hut hidden under the well in the garden is the estive residence of a monarch similarly inclined (though considering how long monsters, including slimes, live its possible that this king and the founder are one and the same). Nowadays many of the students of the Académie doubt the veracity of the story behind the founding of the school.
