The Parliament of Sydalon is the national, bicameral legislature of the Kingdom of Sydalon, consisting of two chambers: Senate (upper house) and National Assembly (lower house).

The Parliament sits in two locations: Palis Autrecôté in Ostracine, and the Parliament House in Sydalon. Members of the Senate are appointed by ennoblement by the Monarch or inheritance of a hereditary seigneurie or peerage. Assembly members are popularly elected for three-year terms through direct election by party-list proportional representation or first past the post voting, though vacancies may be filled either by special election or appointment. The Monarch may call for early elections. The Parliament has 557 members across both houses, 301 Peers, and 256 Assembly Members.

Proposed 2018 constitutional amendments seek to require the Monarch to appoint the person most likely to hold the confidence of the National Assembly to serve as Chancellor. The Parliament cannot remove the Chancellor, but confirms the Monarch's appointee. The Parliament also holds the ability to enact constitutional reforms upon the approval of the Monarch and domain governments.
