The Macedon that Minerva and Maria remembered best was one of peace: a quiet, prosperous kingdom famed for the flying beasts favored by dracoknights.
— Shadow Dragon narration, on Macedon

The Kingdom of Macedon (Japanese: マケドニア Macedonia; PAL: Medon) was a nation of Archanea, occupying the forested south-eastern band of the landmass of Dolhr, to the south of the rest of the continent.

Macedon was originally just part of the Dolhr Empire's land holdings, an undeveloped forest to which it deported slaves to work, until one such slave, Iote, led a slave revolt against their Dolhr masters, taming the wyverns of the region and using them as steeds in combat and combating Dolhr at the same time as the Archanean effort against it spearheaded by Anri and Cartas. After Medeus's downfall, Macedon was formed into a kingdom in the year 503, with Iote as its first king.

At the onset of the War of Shadows, the ruler at the time King Osmond came into conflict with his son Michalis over the country's course in the war&emdash;while Osmond wished to ally with Archanea, Michalis eventually advocated an alliance with Dolhr. With the persuasion of Gharnef, this resulted in Michalis having his father assassinated and framing Archanea for the deed, cementing the Dolhr alliance. From there, Macedonian forces actively participated in the conquering and rule of the continent, specifically being tasked with the subjugation of Aurelis. Macedon was the last ally of Grust to fall at the hands of Altea's Prince Marth's uprising against Dolhr's rule, and after the war was left in the reluctant hands of Minerva, Michalis's sister.

Several years later, a faction of Macedonian knights led by Rucke initiated a coup against Minerva, displeased with her approach to ruling Macedon and specifically to her disbanding of most of the army. This coup was dispelled by Marth and the Altean army, taken as a pretense as a sign of aggression by Emperor Hardin Archanea and contributing to sparking the War of Heroes.

After the War of Heroes, Minerva and Maria (along with Michalis in the remake) abdicated from their claim to rule the country and left it in the hands of Marth, and so it joined the Unified Kingdom of Archanea.

Known rulers of Macedon include the founder Iote, his descendant Osmond and his son Michalis.
