Val Royeaux is the capital of Orlais, and home to the Chantry of Andraste. It lies on the northern coast of the far inland tip of the Waking Sea.


Not much is known of Val Royeaux, though it seems to have a similar function as Rome and the Vatican City in real-world Italy. It is the secular capital, but also be the capital of the Chantry, the seat of the Divine being situated at the Grand Cathedral of Val Royeaux. There, the Chantry performs a ritual where the entire Chant of Light is sung, a process thought to take about a fortnight to complete.

Val Royeaux is also where aging templars retire to when they can no longer adequately perform their services due to mental deterioration caused by long-term lyrium dependency.
