Descendants Wiki

The Imperial Palace is an Auradonian palace, located in Northern Wei. It is mentioned in the book, Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel that Mulan and Li Shang guard it.

Before Auradon[]

In Mulan, Shan Yu and six other Huns succeeded in getting inside the Imperial Palace kidnapping the emperor. Mulan, Li Shang as well as Yao, Ling and Chien Po scaled the pillars of the palace to enter through the windows. Chien Po, Ling, and Yao dressed as concubines got close enough to the six Huns to fight them so Mulan and Li Shang could get to Shan Yu. While Mulan and Li Shang kept Shan Yu temporarily busy, Ling, Yao and Chien Po (carrying the emperor) slid down a rope which had been used to hang Chinese Lanterns. Eventually, a fight moved to the top of the Imperial Palace where Mulan disarmed Shan Yu with a fan, pinned him to the roof with a sword so that he would not be able to escape when Mushu shot fireworks at him blasting the roof of the palace.


  • Imperial City is modeled on the real-life Forbidden City; however, in Mulan movie is set during the Northern Wei dynasty of the 4th-6th century, while Forbidden City dates to the 15th century.
