Origin of palace

  • Middle English from Old French palais from Palātium , Palatine Hill, Rome (from its being the site where emperors built their homes), imperial residence
    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
  • From Middle English, from Old French palais, which comes from Latin palātium, from Palātium, in reference to the Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome, where the aristocracy of the Roman Republic"”and later, Roman emperors"”built large, splendid residences. The name is ultimately either from Etruscan, the same source as Pales (“Pales, the Italic goddess of shepherds, flocks and livestock"), or Latin palus (“stake; enclosure").
