Purpose

To defeat Dolhr and bring peace to the continent

Appearance(s)
Our victory was not just the accomplishment of us Altean knights. Overcoming status and position; being able to fight together as equals... That is how Prince Marth fights. No matter when an ally came to our side, they could instantly join the battle with us. That is also a necessary skill for an Altean knight.
— Jagen to Kris

The Archanean League (Japanese: アカネイア同盟軍 Akaneian Alliance Army), more often simply called the League (Japanese: 同盟軍 Alliance Army), is an army formed by the union of the Altean, Aurelian, and later the Archanean armies in order to defeat Dolhr and its allies during the War of Shadows. It was formed after Marth obtained the Fire Emblem at Aurelis from Princess Nyna of Archanea.

After Medeus's defeat and the end of the war, the Archanean League was disbanded and everyone went their separate ways.

History

Main article: War of Shadows

The Archanean League was formally founded after Marth obtained the Fire Emblem at Aurelis from Princess Nyna of Archanea in the aftermath of the Battle in Aurelis Castle. Prior to this, Marth had already managed to amass a sizable army consisting of the Altean soldiers Jagen, Cain, Abel, Draug, Gordin, Norne and tactician Malledus, the Talysian princess Caeda and soldiers Ogma, Bord, Cord, Barst and Castor, along with the healer Wrys. Marth and Caeda have also manage to recruit the Galder pirate Darros, the Soothsires Julian and Navarre, Macedon nobles Lena and Matthis, Marth's friend Merric and his mentor Wendell, the thief Rickard and Prince Hardin of Aurelis, along with his soldiers Wolf, Sedgar, Roshea and Vyland.

Following this, the army made a detour to assist a village whose children have been abducted by pirates. During the resulting skirmish against the pirates, a foreign swordswoman named Athena decides to accompany Marth and the pirates are successfully slain. On their way to Archanea, the army traversed through Lefcandith Gauntlet, where Marth encountered Bantu, a Manakete who was searching for another Manakete named Tiki; Bantu joined the army to do so more effectively. During a brief recuperation in Port Warren, the army was attacked by Grustian soldiers. With the aid of hired swordsmen Caesar, Radd and the Grustian knight Roger, whom Caeda managed to seduce into defecting, the league managed to defeat the Grustian force. With the enemy in hot pursuit, the league decided they had no choice but to flee to the island kingdom of Pyrathi.
