For the continent known by this name in Fire Emblem Awakening, see Archanea (continent).









Ylisse (Japanese: イーリス Iris) is a kingdom located in the south-east of the continent of the same name. It borders the Theocracy of Plegia to the west, and Regna Ferox to the north. In the distant past, the territory now comprising Ylisse was part of the Holy Kingdom of Archanea, and the island kingdom of Talys. The ruler of Ylisse is the Exalt, who, at the beginning of the events of Fire Emblem Awakening, is Emmeryn.

Prior to the events of Awakening, the previous Exalt, Chrom's father, waged a terrible war on Plegia, with the intent of wiping out the Grimleal, a cult seeking to resurrect the Fell Dragon Grima. The war ended with his death, and ever since then, his daughter Emmeryn had sought to repair relations between her nation and Plegia. Unfortunately, Gangrel, the king of Plegia, sought only revenge for her father's deeds, a desire that led both him and Emmeryn to their downfalls.
