Niflheim-Airships-FFXV

Niflheim airships flying overhead.

The Empire of Niflheim (ニフルハイム帝國, Nifuruhaimu Teikoku?) is an enemy nation in Final Fantasy XV. It launches an attack on the capital of Lucis, Insomnia, during the peace treaty signing party, which would have settled the dispute over the last crystal. Presumably, this is only a ruse to enter Lucis and invade.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Niflheim, also called Niflheimr, is a location in Norse Mythology meaning "mist world". In the story of Gylfaginning, Odin explains that creation began when the ice of Niflheimr met the flames of Muspelheim. Nibelheim is literally translated as "fog-home" in German. "Nibel" is an old-fashioned way to pronounce "Nebel", the German word for "fog", but can also be translated as "cloud" resulting in "cloud home".

The same name origin is used for Nibelheim from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII.
