* ''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.

* Shakespeare is pretty heavy on courts, unsurprising as he sets a lot of his works in either medieval or mystically pre-medieval time periods. The Danish royal court in ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' is probably the most obvious, alongside others such as the [[DeadlyDecadentCourt British court]] in ''Theatre/{{King Lear}}'' or those of Sicilia and Bohemia in ''Theatre/{{The Winters Tale}}''.

* Caterers: this is actually a fairly important job, absurd as it sounds. Knowing how to put on a good FancyDinner or DancesAndBalls puts people in a good mood to begin negotiations, and advertises a monarchs importance. If TheKingdom can pay for political disputes with wine instead of blood, TheKingdom has gotten a good deal. As a footnote, having rival dignitaries drunk(or drugged) during a negotiation can be a useful if risky ploy. Certain palace servants like the sénéchal or majordomo will have making deals with caterers as one of their major jobs. Other servants have need of these as an obvious part of their role. Cooks need food. Bards need special effects experts, musicians and so on, the palace itself needs architects, and everyone needs expensive clothing, sometimes even including servants.

* 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.

* ''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).
