|“||Yngvi’s ruling family of master archers are descended from Ulir, the God of Archery.||”|
— A Grannvale villager
Yngvi (Japanese: ユングヴィ Jungby) is one of the six noble houses of the Kingdom of Grannvale. It comprises the south-western region of Grannvale, near the Jun River and the border with Verdane, and is situated west of Chalphy. It was founded in the year 649, shortly after the fall of the Loptrian Empire, by Ulir of the Twelve Crusaders alongside Grannvale itself and its other duchies; its ruling family are his descendants and possess his holy bloodline, permitting them to wield the holy bow Yewfelle. As with the other duchies, House Yngvi commands their own elite squadron of knights: the Beige Ritter, an archer batallion.
In Grann 757, Yngvi’s then-Duke Ring and his son Andorey departed with the Grannvale army to go to war with Isaach, despite their disagreements; at his daughter Edain's request, Ring left the Yewfelle behind with Edain in case she found her lost sister, Brigid, its sole inheritor out of Ring's three children. With Grannvale mostly defenseless, neighboring Verdane launched a surprise assault on the country, laying siege to Yngvi Castle. Verdane's prince Gandolf quickly overpowered the Yngvi knights led by Midayle and abducted Edain, taking her back to Verdane with him with the intent of forcing her into marriage. In response, Sigurd of Chalphy launched a counter-offensive against Verdane, freeing Yngvi Castle and invading Verdane to attempt to rescue Edain. Meanwhile, at the climax of the Isaach war, Andorey allied with Langobalt and Reptor in their traitorous intentions, killing Ring and assuming the role of Duke of Yngvi for himself. Andorey led the Yngvi army in assisting Maios and Daccar in the Silesse civil war, and in fighting Sigurd's attempt to return to Grannvale as part of Langobalt's forces at Lubeck Castle; he died in the latter encounter.
Following Andorey's death, the Yngvi throne was assumed by his own son, Scopio. In the liberation war's final battle in Grann 778, Scopio and the Beige Ritter worked with Hilda of Friege in fighting Seliph's army, ambushing them as they crossed the woods between Dozel and Friege. Scopio was defeated in this battle, and at the war's conclusion Brigid's son Faval became the new Duke of Yngvi.
