Re:Zero Wiki

This page is about the Princess of Lugnica. For the Sin Archbishop of Lust, see Capella Emerada Lugnica.

Emerada Lugnica (エメラダ・ルグニカ) was a Princess of Dragon Kingdom of Lugnica and had the necessary qualities for becoming the Lion King. She lived before the events of the Demi-Human War and had died at a very young age due to a mysterious illness. Though she's yet to make an appearance in the main story or any side stories, Emerada has been briefly mentioned and talked about by Wilhelm van Astrea and indirectly mentioned by Miklotov McMahon at the very start of the spinoff novel Ex 1.

Strangely enough, the current Witch Cult's Sin Archbishop of Lust Capella Emerada Lugnica also shares the same name as her, as well as a vile personality that's incidentally attributed to Emerada as well. Furthermore, Capella most often tends to take shape of a younger girl with gold hair and crimson red eyes, matching the characteristic physical attributes of the Lugnican Royal Family to a tee.


Emerada is mentioned to have been exceptionally beautiful[1]. She, just like the rest of the Royal Family, had gold hair and red eyes. Besides these two facts, however, nothing else is known about Emerada's appearance.


Emerada Lugnica was described as being very wise and capable. Despite that, however, Emerada was said to be extremely cruel, and was considered to be a nonconformist within the Royal Family as she had an immeasurable darkness toward others[2]. According to Miklotov McMahon, she apparently had the qualities necessary to be a Lion King[3].


Emerada lived before the Demi-Human War, more than fifty years before the start of the main story. At an unspecified point in time, she died at a young age due to a disease, and the news of her death was hidden for a while. As the national sentiment was against it, she wasn't given a state funeral, with a surface reason claiming that it wasn't possible under their current circumstances[4].


  1. "I never met her in person, but the records mention that she was a lady of exceptional beauty and wisdom." Re:Zero Light Novel Volume 17 Chapter 3. Section 3
  2. "Lady Emerada was a terribly beautiful and wise person... But she was also reportedly cruel in the extreme, and constantly shrouded in unfathomable darkness. As such, though she was part of the Royal Family, she was branded a heretic and even news of her passing seemed to have been suppressed for some time." Re:Zero Light Novel Volume 17 Chapter 3. Section 3
  3. ""So you may say, Your Highness, but the blood has not run thin. It is a fact that once every several generations a true master appears in the royal line. Two generations ago..." Miklotov had been speaking fluently, but suddenly he stopped. His wrinkled face darkened and he shook his head and murmured, "No."" Re:Zero Ex Light Novel Volume 1: A Dream's Beginning. Section 2.
  4. "Lady Emerada succumbed to an illness at a young age. However, not only was her death not mourned by the kingdom, she also was denied a state funeral, as would be standard. The stated reason was that the condition at the time were too dire to hold a formal ceremony. However, the real reason was that the kingdom's people had no desire to do any such thing."
