Valentia is a continent located in the same world as the continent of Archanea in the Fire Emblem series. The continent serves as the setting of Fire Emblem Gaiden, and though the story of Gaiden is separate from the tales in both the original Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi and the following Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo, several characters from the other games make appearances in Gaiden's storyline.
In Fire Emblem: Awakening, the continent is known as Valm.
In the early days of man, Valentia was ruled by two gods, Doma and Mila.
