The Hewn City, also known as the Court of Nightmares, is located under the mountains of the Night Court and in the domain of High Lord Rhysand.  

Said to have been the inspiration behind the decor and design of Amarantha's famed court Under the Mountain, the residents of the Hewn City are known for their heartlessness and cruelty.

Traditionally, the Hewn City is the home of the High Lord of the Night Court and the place from which he governs his territory. However, in the case of High Lord Rhysand, he vastly prefers Velaris and the Court of Dreams. Rhysand has assigned Morrigan to be in charge of Hewn City, but the inhabitants of the Hewn City are ruled primarily by Keir, who serves as a steward for High Lord Rhysand, making the Court of Nightmares a haven for all those who oppose Rhysand's practices or philosophies, preferring instead the ancestral values of the treacherous Night Court.

They are known as the "Court of Nightmares" due to their violent principles, and are believed to be an honest representation of the Night Court by their fellow Prythians, for few are privy to the well-guarded knowledge of the secret existence of Velaris and the Court of Dreams.
