Family palace

From Crusader Kings II Wiki

A family palace holding

A Family Palace is a special type of holding unique to patricians of a merchant republic. Representing a collection of owned businesses and properties rather than feudal owned land, the Family Palace provides a unique construction tree of buildings that provide bonuses to the Patrician's stats and army. The Family Palace is always passed to the heir of the dynasty - either the eldest member or the Designated Heir. Since it does not represent a single physical structure, it is not located in any particular province. When raised, its levies will appear in the patrician's regular capital; if the patrician holds no other territory, the levies appear in the capital of the republic. A Family Palace can't be conquered, revoked or given away, nor can it be besieged.

Because a Family Palace can't be lost, provides unique bonuses, and its buildings do not have technology requirements, it should be a high priority for upgrades. However, the long construction times of the buildings mean that building a complete Family Palace will be a multi-generational process.

A Family Palace is only destroyed if the Patrician family has no male family members left.
