Persopolis was the only inhabited stone city in the Great Southern Desert of Tortall. It was the only city built by the Bazhir and was built to keep watch of the Black City. Inside the city were eleven springs and wells.
When they were squires Jonathan and his friends as well as Alanna, who had gotten special permission to go along on the trip although she was still a page, made a trip to Persopolis, where they met Ali Mukhtab, then the city's governor and later revealed to be the Voice of the Tribes.
