Let $\cL = (\cL_1,\cL_2)$ be a list consisting of structural data for a matrix polynomial; here $\cL_1$ is a sublist consisting of powers of irreducible (monic) scalar polynomials over the field $\RR$, and $\cL_2$ is a sublist of nonnegative integers. For an arbitrary such $\cL$, we give easy-to-check necessary and sufficient conditions for $\cL$ to be the list of elementary divisors and minimal indices of some real $T$-palindromic quadratic matrix polynomial. For a list $\cL$ satisfying these conditions, we show how to explicitly build a real $T$-palindromic quadratic matrix polynomial having $\cL$ as its structural data; that is, we provide a $T$-palindromic quadratic realization of $\cL$ over $\RR$. A significant feature of our construction differentiates it from related work in the literature; the realizations constructed here are direct sums of blocks with low bandwidth, that transparently display the spectral and singular structural data in the original list $\cL$.
