Storming the Capital (Japanese: 王都奪還 Retaking the capital) is the sixteenth chapter of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. In order to play the sidequest after, Douglas must survive this chapter.

Which set of the next four chapters (and potentially sidquest) is played after this one—or the following sidequest, if it is played—depends on the combined experience of four units: if the sum of the experience gained by Shanna and Thea is greater than or equal to that of Sue and Sin, the Ilia route will be played; otherwise, the Sacae route will be played.

Beginning log

After rescuing Fae, Roy led his forces toward Aquileia. As the capital of Etruria, Aquileia was the largest, most prosperous city on the continent. Preparing for the Lycian Army's attack, the Revolutionaries were concentrating their forces in the palace. The Revolutionaries' original plan was to use of the city walls for defense, but since the Elimine Church had turned to the Alliance Army's side, they were forced to retreat and shell up inside the palace, fearing that the Church may have encouraged the civilians to protest. The Elimine Church was established by Saint Elimine, one of the Eight Heroes. The Church had followers all around Elibe, primarily in Bern and Etruria. With the Church's support, Roy was able to arrive at the palace with ease. However, Bern's southern dispatch led by General Narcian was waiting for him inside.
