Francis Palace is the official seat of the House of Kürzung and the official residence and workplace of the Duke in Axvalley. Built in the beggining of 20th century, the palace houses one of the most powerful families in the micronational and Karno-Ruthenian history.
The Francis Palace in Axvalley is the official imperial residence of the Duke of Kürzung. From 2013 to 2017, it was the seat of the Governor Comissioner of the Crown Dependency of Axvalley, then part of Austenasia, thereafter the seat of the ruling family of Axvalley. After the signing of the Treaty of Kürzung that merged the duchy to Karnia-Ruthenia, the Palace continued as an administrative center, remaining the formal seat of the Court at Axvalley and the duke's workplace, as much as his official residence.
