Appearance(s)
But history needs to remember that when Macedon went astray, it was a Macedonian who set things right.
— Minerva, to Marth

Minerva (ミネルバ, Minerba) is the elder princess of Macedon, the middle child of the late King Osmond's three children, and the commander of Macedon's Whitewings squadron. In the War of Shadows, she is skeptical of her brother Michalis's claims and intent as he claimed the Macedon throne and directed the country to ally with Dolhr, but is nonetheless forced to serve Michalis and Dolhr as they had taken her sister Maria hostage. When Marth frees Maria from her imprisonment at Castle Deil, Minerva and the Whitewings join his forces. Several years later, she is gravely injured in a military coup staged by Ryuke and other disgruntled Macedon soldiers, but is saved by Michalis, then widely thought to be dead. Michalis spirits her away to a Khadein village to await Marth's approach, and she allies with Marth upon his arrival, spending the war searching for Maria, who had mysteriously disappeared in the coup.

Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi

Role

Minerva's first encounter with Marth's army comes when she and the Whitewings are deployed to Lefcandith Valley under the command of Harmein. She comes into conflict with Harmein's tactics of choice, and despite being reminded of Maria's predicament under the "care" of Dolhr she still withdraws early in the battle.

After Marth's skirmish at Pyrathi, Catria arrives as a messenger from Minerva, explaining her plight and requesting Marth's assistance. Minerva later arrives at Castle Deil under the pretense of trying to see Maria, instead waiting for Marth's army to arrive and follow through on the offer, whereupon she, Maria and the Whitewings all join Marth's army.

Book 2

Role

Minerva's governance of Macedon is abruptly overthrown by a successful coup led by Ryuke, a Macedon knight. She is gravely wounded in the ensuing fight, thought to be beyond help by Ryuke, but is taken away by Michalis upon his request. Michalis spirits her away to a Khadein village to recover and await the arrival of Marth's forces, before leaving to search for the disappeared Maria. Eventually, at the Dragon's Altar, she awakes Maria from her hypnosis at the hands of Gharnef, saving her from being sacrificed to the revival of Medeus.

BS Fire Emblem: Archanea Senki

Role

Minerva encounters Hardin

During the Macedon occupation of Aurelis, Minerva is appalled to encounter deserters from her forces assaulting innocent villagers. In an initial skirmish with some of the deserters, she meets Hardin who, not identifying himself at all, guides her to a fortress where the deserters, led by Ruben, have set up a headquarters. She and Hardin, accompanied by Catria and Est of the Whitewings and Wolf and Roshea of Aurelis, form a temporary alliance to eradicate the deserters. After the battle and Hardin's departure, she is informed by one of her soldiers the nature of the mystery man with whom she had allied, and she leaves the encounter with a newfound respect for Hardin and his resistance against the Macedon occupation.

When Marth's forces arrive at the Macedon border, she explains to Marth her intention to follow through on personally stopping Michalis, and expresses her long-held admiration for her talented elder brother and that she wishes it had not come to this.
