Inner LocationsEdit

Reign104 0468
The Throne Room is the room in which we see the most of at French Court and it seems to be at the center of court life. Most celebrations held by the French royals take part in the thrones room including Francis and Mary's Wedding, Michaelmas Banquet, First Light Banquet and others. The room is the locations for the throne of both the King and Queen of France. During Season One of the series the thrones were held by Henry II and Catherine de' Medici. However following Henry's death the thrones now rightfully belong to Francis and Mary Stuart.

The Study is a room in the castle used for paperwork and reading. It is also a room in which various plots are devised. For example when Henry II was using it to plan an invasion in Calais with the help of Francis. Also when Mary, Francis and Catherine later used it to plot the death of the king since he had gone mad. It was also used by Mary for a secret meeting with Lord McKenzie, where she rose as Queen of Scotland.

The Dungeon is were all the prisoners or those whom are awaiting execution or trial are kept. Who are from in or the surrounding villages of the castle. People such as Sebastian, Colin, Nostradamus and Isobel have all been kept in the dungeon at one point or another.

The Stables are were the horses owned by residents or visitors of French Court are kept. We often see them before someone leaves on horseback to another location.

The Passages are a series of secret tunnels connecting different parts of French Court together and outside. They were mostly used by Clarissa whom lived there for most of her life. She used them to get around the castle and help Mary. They were intended to be used by Mary, Catherine, and Mary's ladies to escape the castle when it was under siege.

The Yard is the outdoor are of court in which alot or residents hang out at since there is not actual court yard, its more of a front yard. It is also the place were alot of outdoor celebrations are held such as the Boating Party and the Harvest Festival. It is also right on the outskirts of the Blood Wood.

The Ballroom is a set that was built after season one and before the second season. Its where most of the indoor events and celebrations are now held. Instead of inside the throne room. Sebastian also referred to the room as a gallery in The Plague. Meaning it also serves as a place where people gather.

The Wine Cellar is were the wine for those from French Court is kept. It is kept there for either storage or to age the wine. A lot of secret plotting takes place in the wine cellar. Like when Sebastian, Henry II and Mary Stuart were plotting to have Bash be the next king of France instead of Francis. Also when Bash and Mary were hiding Isobel Derant's baby so Catherine wouldn't find out.

The Tower is were those of higher position, particularly the royal family are locked up when they commit a crime. Catherine was locked up in the tower when she was being tried for adultery. Mary was also locked in the tower by Francis. She was however locked up for no crime but at the command of Francis who didn't want her to leave court.

The Courtyard was also added as a new set during the second season of Reign. It is now more often used than the actual yard which was featured alot in the first season. Its most infamously the location in which Nostradamus was nearly drawn and quartered.




  • In reality, the French Court in the show is actually Ashford Castle in Ireland.
  • It's likely that this castle is Fontainebleau Palace, which was the main residence, during King Henry II's reign.
