A chapter map of most of Silesse from Genealogy of the Holy War.

Silesse (translated Silesia in the Japanese version, Silezha in the English version of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, and translated as Ciledia in some of the fan translations) is a country featured in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and located north of Yied Desert, west of Isaach. It is the home of Lewyn and Ferry, and their children Fee and Ced. It was founded by Sety the Wind Crusader. It is the coldest country in Jugdral. Throughout Jugdral history, it has often been a neutral country. It has five castles: Silesse, Sailane, Thove, Zaxon, and Lubeck. It is stated by Ferry that their deity is the Wind God Forseti. Chapter 4 and part of Chapter 5 take place here. Silesse is the native country to pegasi in the continent of Jugdral.

HistoryEdit

Silesse was founded by the Crusader Sety sometime around the Gran Calendar Year 649. It has often been a neutral country, but that does not stop it from having a civil war in Chapter 4, with Duke Daccar and Duke Maios trying to overthrow Queen Rahna, but this rebellion is stopped with the help of Sigurd and his army. During this, Duke Langobalt captures Lubeck Castle, but he is later dislodged by Sigurd's army as well. After the Battle of Belhalla, during Gran Calendar Year 761, Silesse is invaded by Grannvale. After Seliph's army captures Chalphy Castle, the people of Silesse overthrow the Grannvale installed government, and after the holy war ends, Lewyn's son, canonically Ced, becomes king.

EtymologyEdit

The names of Silesia in the different languages (Latin and English: Silesia; Polish Śląsk, Old Polish Ślążsk[o]; German Schlesien; Czech Slezsko; Silesian Ślůnsk) most likely share their etymology. The names are all related to the name of a river (now Ślęza) and mountain (Mount Ślęża) in mid-southern Silesia. The mountain is a prehistoric holy place.

Ślęża is listed as one of the numerous preindoeuropean topographic names in the region (see old European hydronymy). The name Ślęża may come from the Silingi, a probably Vandalic (East Germanic) people that migrated south from the Baltic Sea along the Elbe, Oder and Vistula rivers in the 2nd century. Alternatively, the name of the Silingi tribe may come from the name of the river or mountain. Another alternative proposed source is the West Slavic word ślęga meaning "humid weather" or "wet ground".
