The Whiteburn Palace is the principal residence of the President of Costa Madora. Its current tenants include incumbent President Elisabeth Strandberg, First Gentleman Victor Mitchell and their closest family.


Whiteburn Palace was built in 1418 for Ludwig Whiteburn, 1st Lord of Galaroza (current day Vitorife and surrounding counties). After a fire damaged the castle, it was demolished.

In 1733, Queen Catherine Feodorov, wife of late Nicholas II of Costa Madora was surveying the area during her wars against southwestern Krosari. According to author Vicente Cotilla, the palace was constructed where the castle was located and named in honor of Lord Whiteburn.

The palace was used as Catherine's summer residence during her years as first Empress of Costa Madora, with the Treaty Room featuring Grecian script describing the achievements of Catherine I. This room was known as the location where the famous Treaty of Galaroza was signed, which formed the Madorian Empire.


In vicinity, one can see the beautiful gardens curated personally by Catherine and her court members, the Keystone Park and Keystone House (President's guest house). Across the gardens is the National Museum of History, while the National Library and Archive lies west.
