“Hey, I'll send you to Vylon. He must be getting lonely by now.”
—Battle Quote with Sigurd in Genealogy of the Holy War

Langobalt (ランゴバルト Rangobaruto, translated Langbart in the fan translations) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is the Duke of Dozel in the First Generation, and is the father of Lex and Danan, alongside being the grandfather of Burian, Johan, and Johalva.

In the course of the game's events, Langobalt schemes with Duke Reptor in a conspiracy to obtain more power. When Prince Kurth returns from the war in Isaach, Langobalt assassinates him and frames Duke Vylon of Chalphy, his son Sigurd, and Duke Ring of Jungby for the crime. He also mortally wounds Vylon and destroys Chalphy's Gruenen Ritter.

In Chapter 3, Langobalt is seen entering the domains of northern Agustria to arrest Sigurd on charges for supposedly assisting in overthrowing the Grannvaleian throne, and aiding in the murder of Prince Kurth. This action of his forces Sigurd's army to escape into Silesse, where they spend a considerable amount of time in hiding. Langobalt reappears again in Chapter 5, leading a large army of Grannvaleian soldiers against Sigurd's army. Langobalt eventually falls in battle, having been overwhelmed by Sigurd's forces.

Langobalt is also shown, in the beginning of Chapter 5, to express disgust towards Andorey for killing Lord Ring, an individual whom he supposedly holds in rather high esteem.

Langobalt is a force to be reckoned with, as a result of possessing the Helswath holy axe. As the axe in question drastically raises his defenses, only characters with massive attack powers should be utilized to face off against Langobalt in battle. Such characters include Lewyn with the Forseti tome, Briggid with the Yewfelle bow, Sigurd with the Tyrfing sword, and Holyn. The player should also be warned that the Helswath axe is capable of being used as a ranged weapon, and as such should not let his/her guard down when attempting to attack at a distance. The only one of his successors to use the Helswath is Burian.


Battle ConversationEdit

“Gwahaha... weaklings. As long as I have my Helswath... No matter how many of you come, you'll all suffer the same fate! If you don't want to die stay away!”
—Langobalt's default battle quote in Genealogy of the Holy War.

Vs. SigurdEdit

Langobalt: Gwahaha... the kid's made it. Hey, I'll send you to Vylon. He must be getting lonely by now.
Sigurd: Langobalt! I'll never forgive you for what you did to my father!!

Vs. LexEdit

Langobalt: You... Lex?! You traitor!! You're turning on your own father! Have you no shame!?
Lex: You say that I disgust you, but... Dad, this is fate... Please forgive me...

Death QuoteEdit

“No... I've been defeated...? Danan... it's up to you.”
—Langobalt's death quote in Genealogy of the Holy War


Langobalt is a corruption of Langobard, Germanic people who were originally from Northern Europe and later settled in central Italy. The name "Langobard" originated from the length of these people's beards, with the Latin words of longus and barba meaning "long" and "bart" respectively.


  • The family tree of the Fire Emblem: Treasure artbook states that Langobalt conceived Lex and Danan with different women, essentially making the duo half brothers. This points towards the possible notions of Langobalt either keeping a mistress or remarrying.
  • Langobalt is also revealed to have had a middle child before Lex with Danan's mother in the aforementioned artbook. The name on the chart in question is faded out, implying that this particular child probably passed away prior to the events of the game.
  • In the prototype version of the game, Langobalt was of the Great Knight class, much like his son Lex. [1]
