“Thank you. I believed that you would definitely come rescue me.”

Mathilda (マチルダ Machiruda; translated Matilda in the fan translation) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Gaiden. She is a legendary female knight of Zofia. She was captured by Desaix and was planned to be executed, although she was saved when Alm's army arrived and killed Desaix. After the war, she retired from the knighthood and married Clive.

In Chapter 3, talk to her at Desaix's Fortress if she survived the previous battle.

Mathilda is the best all-rounder Cavalier/Paladin/Gold Knight in Gaiden. While she winds up with the lowest HP and is tied for lowest Defense, she gets the highest Skill, Speed, Luck, and Resistance. She winds up better than Clive in everything except HP. Both Zeak and Mycen are stronger and more durable than Mathilda, but they have significantly lower Skill, Speed, and Luck. Giving Mathilda a strong weapon will benefit her more than the other horse units since she is fast enough to Double Attack many enemies that the other horse units cannot. While all of the mounted units in Gaiden are solid, Mathilda is good even for a mounted unit and can be considered one of the better units in the game. Zeak is very close to Mathilda in overall power and they can both be considered the stronger horse units.


She shed her armor and became Clive's wife.
The legendary female knight, Mathilda --
That name shall surely be carved within the histories of Valentia for eternity.

  • (If Clive is dead)

Having lost Clive, she reluctantly took command of the knights' order.
The legendary female knight, Mathilda --
That name shall surely be carved within the histories of Valentia for eternity.


“Ah, Clive. I wanted to pass the days together with you in peace.”
—Mathilda's death quote
