Midenhall (Japanese: ローレシア Roureshia, "Laurasia") is a castle located in northeast Torland, and is the starting location of Dragon Quest II. It is one of the three kingdoms established by the descendant of Erdrick and Princess Gwaelin, as well as the oldest. At the beginning of the story, a wounded soldier arrives from the Kingdom of Moonbrooke to tell the king of the events of Hargon's attack on his cousin's castle, setting the plot of the game into motion as the Prince of Midenhall sets out to save the world.

Often thought to be the most powerful due to the strength possessed by the Prince of Midenhall, it is where the wounded soldier from Moonbrooke goes instead of Cannock, which is much closer.

Castle Treasures

King's Gift

Upon leaving the throne room at the start of the game, the King gives the Hero a chest containing both a Copper sword and 50 Gold Coins. The chest will only be there until the area is exited, thus being possible to miss.

Mark of Erdrick

The Mark of Erdrick is obtainable from the treasure room after getting the Golden Key.

Lightning staff

Midenhall has a jail that houses an Wrecktor (a Magus in the Game Boy Color remake) that will drop the Princess of Moonbrooke's best weapon, the Lightning staff.

In the NES version of II, the Wrecktor will revive after the player saves and resets their game, allowing them to pummel the monster over and over to sell duplicates of the staff at a massive profit. Though both remakes remove the trick, allowing for only one Staff.
