Destria, also know as the Destrian Empire, is a city-state [1] nation in western Vetia. [2] [3] It is ruled by Empress Sophia. [4]

Destria is currently not represented by any faction in the game.


Queen Genoveva, one of Sunna's closest allies, originated from the land now know as Destria [5]. Her descendants are said to live on in the same land [6].


Destria is ruled by the Empress Sophia. She is married to Matthias the Pious, emperor of Sonnstahl. [7]

If the two spouses share in each others responsibilities of governing their respective empires, Destria and Sonnstahl could be considered forming a personal union . This would most certainly become true if the two thrones were inherited by a prospective mutual heir of Sophia and Matthias.

Some source say that Destia has two crowns, who are now united in marriage. This was supposedly something long thought impossible. [8]

Each city in Destria is state of its own, ruled by a noble family of varying titles and positions. Prince Esteban is one such ruler. [1]

Some parts of Destria are considered part of the Iron Crowns together with Arcalea. [9]


The Destria is found on a peninsula in southwestern Vetia. [2] [3]

Destria is known for its twin cities: Port Roig and Santa Genoveva. [3]


Destria has a colony set up in Virentia [8], called Aguadulce. [2] [3] [4]

In 952 A.S. Colonel Sabino Virgen was to sail to Virentia in order to re-establish control of the colony after it had allegedly been attacked by the Saurian Ancients. [4]
