Titania's Palace is a miniature castle that was hand-built in Ireland by James Hicks & Sons, Irish Cabinet Makers, who were commissioned by Sir Neville Wilkinson from 1907 to 1922.<br />
Wilkinson's daughter Gwendolyn claimed to have seen a fairy running under the roots of a tree, in a wood beside their home at Mount Merrion House. It is said that Gwendolyn felt sorry for the fairies, who have to live in underground caves.[citation needed]<br />
The palace consists of 18 rooms and salons, which contain hand-carved mahogany furniture. There are 3000 tiny works of art and miniatures from around the world on display inside the palace. The palace was purchased at auction in London in 1978 by Lego, and was displayed in Legoland, Denmark until 2007. In 2006 Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille made a loan agreement with Lego to display Titania's Palace at Egeskov Castle in Denmark from 2007.
