A Palace I was, and a Palace I am, but no orders do I decree.
No Queen did I house, for only men did rule, during times of grief and struggle.
My shell has openings that welcomed friends, and attempted to dispel our foes.
Some say there was truth I had 10,000 rooms, all heavenly and divine throughout.
But unlike this myth there is a fact that I am divided into two.
My southern part is a lesser court, presenting a harmony supreme, whilst the inner court, which is to the north, contained my royal family.

What am I?
