Valentia (Barensia in the Japanese version and Valencia in the fan translation) is the continent in which Fire Emblem Gaiden takes place, located far west of Akaneia. Originally ruled by the sibling gods Mila and Duma, a dispute eventually led to them dividing the continent between them. The lands of the north were to be ruled by Duma and the lands to the south would be ruled by Mila. Eventually two kingdoms rose from this division, Rigel in the north and Zofia in the south. However, the heavy involvement of the gods in the nations they came to rule led to a contrast between them; the people of Rigel became strong, yet forgot kindness in their might, and the people of Zofia grew corrupt and knew nothing of toil.
