Crisis in Fhirdiad (Japanese: 急変の王都 Suddenly-Changing Royal Capital) is the third chapter of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes on the Blue Lions route, as well as the final chapter of the game's prologue. This chapter consists solely of a battle map, titled Unrest in Fhirdiad.

Plot

Main article: Crisis in Fhirdiad/Script

As Shez and Arval brood over the latter's possible connection to Kronya and her ilk, Dimitri is summoned by Rhea. Duke Rodrigue Achille Fraldarius has arrived at Garreg Mach Monastery, and informs him that Dimitri's uncle Rufus has seized control of Fhirdiad and is orchestrating a purge of House Fraldarius under the pretense of trying to stop them from installing Dimitri as a puppet. Rhea orders Gilbert Pronislav, a Knight of Seiros originally from the Kingdom, to accompany Dimitri to Fhirdiad to suppress the insurrection. Together with Rodrigue, Gilbert, and the Blue Lions save Annette (who remains behind in order to avoid souring House Dominic's relations with its neighbors in case they support Rufus), Dimitri returns to Fhirdiad.

As Dimitri's attempts to convince Rufus to stand down fall on deaf ears, the court mage Cornelia, who is addressed by the name Cleobulus, receives a report from her co-conspirator Thales that something has gone wrong in the Imperial capital Enbarr. The Blue Lions arrive at Fhirdiad, rout Rufus' troops, arrest Rufus, and force Cornelia to flee. In the aftermath, Dimitri publicly executes Rufus for treason. Margrave Gautier reports on his and the western lords' complicity in the Tragedy of Duscur, and Dimitri decides to publicly admit the truth to the people of Faerghus. Rodrigue resigns from his post as Duke Fraldarius in order to act as a target for the people's ire, appoints his son Felix as his successor, and agrees to work with Dedue to make repartitions to Duscur, and Dimitri decides it is time for him to formally take the throne. He convinces Gilbert to retake his birth identity of Gustave Eddie Dominic and both Gustave and Shez to accept posts in the Kingdom army.

In light of the succession crisis in Faerghus, in addition to a coup in Adrestia and an attempted Almyran invasion of Leicester, Rhea closes the Officer's Academy and sends the students home.
