* If there are enough nobles, they might form a separate body within the court that acts as a kind of legislature for the nation. [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem British House of Lords]], the French Estates-General (or just the First and Second Estates), the [[UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic Roman Senate]], and the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman]] ''Reichstag'' are common.

* ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' features several, from the simple and open Ducal court of the Atreides to the decadent, despotic court of the Harkonnens to the (presumed to be) [[DeadlyDecadentCourt deadly decadent Imperial court]] of the Corrinos. The Landsraad is also presumably one of these, as well as being an {{Expy}} of the HolyRomanEmpire's ''Reichstag''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** King's Landing has the most fully-fledged court, complete with kings, Hands, regents, spymasters, treasurers, lawmakers, military commanders, mistresses, royal consorts, royal bodyguards, Grand Maesters, High Septons, household servants, and a crowd of courtiers.
** Since he is on a military campaign, Robb assembles his nobles to discuss what course to take in "Baelor," but otherwise seems to rely on advice from his generals or inner circle.
** Stannis' court is simplified to a contest (complete with GoodAngelBadAngel shot) between Davos TheConsigliere and Melisandre the CourtMage.
** Daenerys regularly gathers her advisors to discuss matters of state and holds court to deal with supplicants.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'' has Dowa Kingdom, a fairly middle-of-the-road version. The royal family resides in Dowa district, and the king is kind and well respected. However, the heir apparent is a young fool, and there are plenty who would take drastic measures to keep him off the throne - hence the conflict of the story. The scenes with them also provide a nice amount of SceneryPorn in the palace, as well as the series' famous FoodPorn - the king is awfully fond of sweets.

* ''CodeGeass'' has a DeadlyDecadentCourt that includes TheEmperor, his OneHundredAndEight consorts, his many children (the numbered princes and princesses), the Knights of the Round, and the many nobles who hold important positions in TheEmpire. The First Prince (Emperor Charles' oldest son) Odysseus is "The Heir" (although he's not very savvy), and Second Prince Schneizel is the Prime Minister/Chancellor. Princess Cornelia appears to be a very high ranked military official (possibly the head of the army), and Clovis is the Viceroy of Area 11 (Japan).

* Various court offices, ranging from the sénéchal, whose position is akin to that of a butler in a great aristocratic household in Britain, to various smaller ranks such as the ''grand moutardier'' of the papal court in Avignon (yes, he was in charge of the pope's mustard). Some of these offices became much more important than their original circle of duties over time, thus the chancellor, originally the head of the king's chancelry and in charge of writing his documents, became the title of the king's most important official advisor, while marshal (the word originally meant "horse-servant") became a high military rank. In the HolyRomanEmpire the seven princes-elector held the key court offices as herditary ranks, but only acted in the respective capacities during the coronation ceremonies, on other occasions these functions were fulfilled by others.
* If there are enough nobles, they might form a separate body within the court that acts as a kind of legislature for the nation. [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem British House of Lords]], the French Estates-General (or just the First and Second Estates), the [[RomanRepublic Roman Senate]], and the [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman]] ''Reichstag'' are common.
