Royal-Tomb-FFXV

A royal tomb.

The power of kings, passed from the old to the new through the bonding of souls. One such soul lies before you. To claim your forebears' power is your birthright and duty as king.
—Cor Leonis

Royal tombs are where the remains of the past kings of Lucis lie in Final Fantasy XV. They are hidden around Eos in hard-to-reach areas and many legends surround their locations. Prince Noctis sets out on a quest to locate the royal tombs to collect the royal arms from their depths, crystalline weapons only the bloodline of the Lucian kings can wield.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
There are thirteen known royal arms, each enshrined at a royal tomb, though we know the location of only a few. I've enlisted the Hunters. They comb the land in search of the lost tombs.
—Cor Leonis

The royal tombs are ancient coffins for Lucian kings, somewhat akin to the statues of the Old Wall in Insomnia. As the statues at Insomnia are said to hold the souls of the past kings, waiting for the call of the current monarch, the royal tombs seem to also hold the "souls" of the royal arms, as they glow when grasped by their rightful owner and soul crystals emanate from them. Most of the tombs are within Lucis. The weapons they house have special abilities, and the tombs also once had the function of sealing out daemons in their vicinity.[1] The key to the tombs is passed down the royal lineage, but as there have been 113 kings before Noctis, many of the tombs and the royal arms they house have been lost to time.

Party and Ancient King FFXV

The party and Cor at a royal tomb.

After Insomnia falls at the hands of the Niflheim Empire, the Marshal of the Crownsguard calls Prince Noctis and asks him to meet at the royal tomb on the Leide region. Noctis learns his father was killed in the invasion, and Cor explains Noctis's duty as the next king is to reclaim the royal arms from the tombs of the Lucian kings scattered around Eos. Though Noctis doesn't yet grasp the gravity of the duty laid upon him, acquiring the power of his forebears is needed for him to fulfill the prophecy of the True King.

Cor helps Noctis get started on his mission by directing him to another tomb nearby, and giving him the key to unlock the tombs he'll come across. After ascertaining that Noctis is strong enough to continue on his quest without his help, Cor departs. He lends his faraway help to Noctis's cause by employing the Hunters in searching out lost tombs. In the town of Lestallum Noctis and his friends learn of a legend of a tomb hidden behind a waterfall, and find another royal tomb in the depths of an ice cavern.

When visiting the Disc of Cauthess Noctis discovers another royal tomb before the Astral Titan. Exploring the Duscae region reveals more tombs, but the Tomb of the Tall is hit by grave-robbers and the greatsword once held there is gone.

During Noctis's battle against Leviathan, Lunafreya Nox Fleuret calls upon the spirits of the old kings to empower him. The royal tombs light up and Noctis enters a sustained state of Armiger. This releases the past kings' magical energy that was sealed in their tombs and restores the Kingsglaive's powers, which they had lost when King Regis died.

Royal-Tomb-Fodina-Caestino-FFXV

Royal tomb in Fodina Caestino.

While en route to Tenebrae after leaving Altissia, Noctis and his retinue take a pit stop at Cartanica station and descend into Fodina Caestino, a large quarry, in search of another royal arm: the Katana of the Warrior. This is the only tomb the party discovers outside of Lucis.

Ravus Nox Fleuret keeps the Sword of the Father with him after Regis's death. However, he is unable to use it, causing people to wonder why he carries it. Another royal arm that is not salvaged from a tomb is the Trident of the Oracle.

Spoilers end here.
