Grancel Castle is a huge castle that the Liberlian Royal Family have resided since the foundations of the country. It is located in the northern quarter of Grancel City right above Valleria Lake and the Sealed Area. Since ancient times, many have tried to take down the Castle, but have not succeeded in getting past Sanktheim Gate and the massive wall which encircles the Royal Capital.
In S.1202, though, it was successfully infiltrated and taken over by Alan Richard and the Intelligence Division. He then dug a tunnel into the hidden sealed area and once he got the Gospel activated the ruin. However, his coup was stopped by Estelle and co. and the castle was returned to its rightful owners, Queen Alicia von Auslese and Princess Klaudia von Auslese.
Estelle and her party visit the castle on numerous occasions as part of her bracer duties. During the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon, the castle is attacked by a group of Ouroboros's Enforcers who are the first ever to breach its massive gates when Walter destroys them with his immense strength. Inside, they face off against the Royal Guard and Phillip Runall, who is the only one to even give them a challenge. Afterwards, the enforcers make it a competition to reach the furthest most Queen's chambers where they are ultimately staved off by Alan Richard and Maximillian Cid.
The castle makes several appearances in the Memory doors of Phantasma. It is where Julia Schwarz is given her day off and must eascape from after legions of her devoted fans try to catch a glimpse of her, and also the site of where Olivert Reise Arnor plans his campaign against the Blood and Iron Chancellor, Giliath Osborne, after meeting with Davil Crainagh. Osborne himself makes an appearance before the queen alongside his aide Lechter Arundel.
A twisted copy of the Castle is created in Phantasma that can only be accessed at nightfall. It is deserted and serves as an entryway into the copied version of the Sealed Area.
