The glass court room referred in the story is a modified version of Curiae
curia, plural Curiae, in European medieval history, a court, or group of persons who attended a ruler at any given time for social, political, or judicial purposes. Its composition and functions varied considerably from time to time and from country to country during a period when executive, legislative, and judicial functions were not as distinct as they were later to become. In general, the curia took care of the rulers personal needs (chamberlains, stewards, butlers), directed the affairs of government (chancellors, treasurers, secretaries, military leaders), or simply provided the ruler with companionship. The ruler and curia made policy decisions either ordinary or major (as on war, treaties, finances, church relations) and, under a powerful ruler—a king, duke, or count—often became active as a court of law. Indeed, curiae became so loaded down with judicial work that the work gradually came to be delegated to special groups of judges, such as the Court of Kings Bench in England or the Parlement in France; such judicial courts in medieval times were at first considered instruments of the curia, however, not independent bodies. The curia similarly turned over the growing burden of financial affairs to such bodies as the English Exchequer and the French Curia in Compotis ( ”Curia of Accounts ”), which too remained instruments of the curia.
The evolution of the medieval curia is well illustrated in Englands Curia, also known as the Curia Regis, or Aula Regis ( ”Kings Court ”). It was introduced at the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) and lasted to about the end of the 13th century. The Curia Regis was the germ from which the higher courts of law, the Privy Council, and the Cabinet were to spring. It was, at first, the general council of the king, or the commune concilium (i.e., the feudal assembly of the tenants-in-chief); but it assumed a more definite character during the reign of Henry I (1100–35), when its members, fewer in number, were the officials of the royal household and other friends and attendants of the king. It assisted the king in his judicial work, its authority being as undefined as his own.
About the same time, the Curia undertook financial duties and in this way was the parent of the Court of Exchequer (curia regis ad scaccarium). The members were called ”justices, ” and in the kings absence the justiciar presided over the court.
A county was divided into hundreds, each of which had its own court. The hundred court was held every three weeks. 12 freemen from across the hundred were called to make up a jury. The cases they were asked to attend included fights, fraud, disputes over small debts, and theft of household goods and animals. Most cases were dealt with by means of a fine. If you started a fight you could be fined between 6d and a shilling (12d).To put this in context, the daily wage for a skilled labourer was about 4d. If blood had been drawn in the fight the fine was over 2 shillings (24d).
Cases of murder, grievous assault, and **** were heard at the sheriffs tourn, which was a special hundred court. The sheriffs tourn usually took place around Easter and Michaelmas (29th September). This was the time when the sheriff appeared in the hundred court, hearing about cases that needed to go to the royal courts. He had to makes sure that all the accused were in custody. During the tourn the sheriff checked on the tithings and adjudicated minor issues. This was the place where the tithings could be fined for not reporting a crime by one of their number. The fines were huge. A tithing could be fined £10 and more. £10 was 2,400d. Even if there were 15 men in the tithing, £10 was almost an impossible sum to find between them. The villeins in a tithing were not skilled labourers and usually only made money by selling surplus crops that they had grown. Avoiding such a large fine was a great inducement to the tithing to hand over the man they thought was responsible for the crime, whether or not they wanted to protect him
Hanging Gardens description
The hanging gardens were famous for their tremendous beauty , they spun all the heads and were responsible for the arch monarchs luck , that lasted all time and it made him more powerful and made the king look perfect , he was always wondered by the grace of his flowers that he personally grew ,,he was determined and watered all the plants on a daily basis , he religious strolled towards the gardens and he did not have them for aesthetics but for energy and power
The Hanging Gardens were described in detail by a number of Classical authors. Though some sources disagreed on who built them, a number of descriptions concurred that the gardens were located near the royal palace and were set upon vaulted terraces. They were also described as having been watered by an exceptional system of irrigation and roofed with stone balconies on which were layered various materials, such as reeds, bitumen, and lead, so that the irrigation water would not seep through the terraces. Although no certain traces of the Hanging Gardens have been found, a German archaeologist, Robert Koldewey, did uncover an unusual series of foundation chambers and vaults in the northeastern corner of the palace at Babylon. A well in one of the vaults may have been used in conjunction with a chain pump and thus was thought perhaps to be part of the substructure of the once towering Hanging Gardens. Monster gardens were a part of the well maintained royal garden , it was a epitome of beauty
Jewels and more
From robe décolleté to robe montante, women of the imperial family dress in particular ways for appearances at the Imperial Palace, depending on the event or ceremony. Lets take a look at the unique characteristics of their attire.
The Emperor wore a formal black suit with white tie and tails, adorned with the medal of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum. The imperial women were attired in their most formal ceremonial dresses.
The attire of choice for the Empress and princesses at this grand ceremony was the robe décolleté, a long, low-cut dress with short sleeves. According to the Imperial Household Agency, the women wore a white or soft-colored dress to match the emperors white tie, along with a tiara, medal, and long white gloves that cover up to the elbows.
Types of armour generally fall into one of three main categories: (1) armour made of leather, fabric, or mixed layers of both, sometimes reinforced by quilting or felt, (2) mail, made of interwoven rings of iron or steel, and (3) rigid armour made of metal, horn, wood, plastic, or some other similar tough and resistant material. The third category includes the plate armour that protected the knights of Europe in the Middle Ages. That armour was composed of large steel or iron plates that were linked by loosely closed rivets and by internal leathers to allow the wearer maximum freedom of movement. The advantage of chain mail is that it is quite flexible yet relatively impervious to slashing strokes (though a thrusting weapon can force the rings apart in spite of their riveted closure). In the form of a simple shirt, mail was worn throughout
The majority of the law-enforcement body armor and helmets are designed to defeat handgun threats. Although procuring helmets for police is not as common as body armor, helmet specifications call for stopping identical bullets. Only a limited quantity of body armor with breast plates is procured by law-enforcement to defeat rifle bullets.
Seven solid, square towers are low, but set firm and strong for a great defensive line and are connected by big, heavy walls made of sandstone.
Simple windows are scattered generously across the walls in an asymmetric pattern, along with holes of various sizes for archers and artillery.
A regular gate with great metal doors and strong defenses guards a tranquil city within this extinguished volcano and its the only way in, at least without taking down the castle walls.

Slender braziers enclosing each of the fourteen travertine columns light up every part of the throne hall and bathe the hall in a dancing glow of orange. The thousands of gems on the domed ceiling dance in the flickering light while gargoyles look down upon the maple floor of this glorious hall.
An amber rug splits part of the room in half from the throne to midway down the hall while embattled banners with adorned tufts dangle gently from the walls. Between each banner stands a large candlestick, many of them have been lit and in turn illuminate the tapestries of other leaders of the world below them.
Tall, stained glass windows depicting important royal moments are concealed by veils colored the same amber as the banners. The curtains have been adorned with fancy tassels and jewels.
A magnificent throne of jade sits below a grand chandelier and is adjoined by five plain, but comfortable seats for the royal highness trustees.
The throne is covered in holy patterns and fixed on each of the slim ears is a sparkling face. The modest pillows are a light amber and these too have been adorned with gilded tips.
Those waiting to see their royal highness can do so on the abundance of gilded and otherwise extravagant maple benches, all of which are diagonally facing the throne. Those of higher standing can instead take seat in the humble looking balustrades overlooking the hall.
The gods to whom they pray is light , they prefer light god and the royal family is bound by the traditions of light god
