The capital city was known as Celador until June 20, 2007, when King Michel I renamed the city, Paris.
Celador was founded as the capital of New Arundel on January 18, 2007. It originally only consisted of the western half of Paris. Eventually, Celador included the entire city of Paris. The Celador Palace lies in the center of the city and was former home to the New Arundel Royal Family. The new Royal Palace is in nearby Versailles.
Now the Royal Family lives in the Vendôme Palace in the city. During the summer, the Royal Family resides at Grand Palais de Française.
Dunconian War Edit
During the Dunconian War, the New Arundel countryside was evacuated and all citizens took refuge in Celador. Some citizens stayed with relatives, some at hotels, and some even at the Celador Palace. The New Arundel Royal Family left the Palace of Versailles and stayed in Celador Palace. The Versailles Palace became the New Arundel Military Base. After the war, citizens moved back to the New Arundel countryside and rebuilt their homes and villages.
This war was fought with the Dunconian Empire, ruled by King Duncan. The Dunconian Empire territories now belong to New Arundel.

Grand Palais de FrançaiseEditThe Grand Palais de Française, or the Grand Palace of France, is the official summer residence of King Michel I and the rest of the New Arundel Royal Family.

When New Arundel became the Royal Republic, the President of New Arundel made his residence in the palace. When the Royal Republic was reorganized into the Grand Kingdom of New Arundel, Celador Palace was put under royal control once again.

When New Arundel took control of all Paris, Luxembourg Palace remained a residence until the Royal Republic began. During the Royal Republic, Luxembourg Palace housed the New Arundel Senate and the Office of the Vice President.
After the Grand Kingdom took over, the palace became empty and unused until King Michel decided to create Celador Christian Academy. The school will be a private school and the students will be assigned uniforms. The headmaster will be Sir Thaddaeus Cloerreon and the school will have dormitories across the street.
Palace of SeineEditThe Palace of Seine is right now home to Celador Christian School. Next year, Celador Christian School will become Celador Christian Academy and will move to Luxembourg Palace.
