Frelia (フレリア Fureria) is a nation in the game Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. It is located in the northwest of Magvel, and borders Carcino and Renais to the southeast and Grado to the south. The kingdom of Frelia is ruled by Hayden, the venerable Sage King and the father of the Pegasus Knight Tana and the Sniper Innes.
While there are some forests and mountains, Frelia consists mostly of plains, making travel throughout the country rather easy.
Frelia is home to pegasi, which are trained for military purposes. Their military seems to favor Pegasus Knights for mobility, Archers for range, and Soldiers and Knights as front-line infantry. Although cavaliers do not seem to be as prevalent in Frelia as they are in Renais, Grado, or Rausten, they do have some cavalry forces, as indicated by Hayden's Ranger class.
Their military strength is formidable, enough to stop even Grado in its tracks. It is in no small part because their forces are also the most well-equipped to counter Grado; Pegasus Knights counter the air superiority otherwise held by Grado's Wyvern Knights and have relatively high resistance to magic, countering the threat posed by Grado's Shamans and Mages. Archers are effective against fliers and can also counter enemy mages and archers. Cavalry, soldiers, and other physical attackers can be warded off by knights and their own soldiers.
A part of Frelia's training regiment has soldiers exert every muscle in their body for better muscular resistance, reducing the amount of fatigue they receive after battle.
In The Sacred Stones, this nation appears as an ally with Renais. It helped the royal heirs of Renais to safety and sent troops against the nation of Grado. Its Sacred Stone was housed in the Tower of Valni, but the Sacred Stone was the second to be destroyed when Selena and Caellach stormed the tower (the first being Grado's). Its Sacred Relics are the serpent bow Nidhogg and the winged lance Vidofnir. Frelia was the first country to declare war on Grado, and, under the command of the imperial prince Innes, met the Grado army head-on. Innes used many spies to stay aware of Grado's every move, which proved successful, as Frelia halted Grado's invasion, but Innes soon returned to the capital to see Eirika and Ephraim. Afterwards, he joins the twins on their quest.
Despite Frelia's alliance with Carcino, Pablo, who sided with Grado, attacked Innes, Gerik, and Tethys, and Eirika's group in Port Kiris. However, Klimt reassures Eirika and Innes that there are members of Carcino's council of elders that still sided with Frelia, and Klimt then travels to Frelia to gather aid and drive out Pablo's forces.
