Akaneia (translated as Archanea in the North American localization and Akanea in Super Smash Bros. Melee) is the largest country in the continent of the same name. Akaneia is a prosperous nation with a large amount of merchant towns. The city was founded by Adrah by combining all of their city states under one monarchy. The city was invaded by the Doluna Empire and the whole royal family was executed except for the princess Nyna who escaped with Camus. Marth and his army were able to liberate the kingdom from the forces of Grust that were positioned there. Eventually in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Hardin was crowned new emperor after he married Nyna.
