The Ancient Armes Dynasty (古代アーメス王朝, Kodai Āmesu Ōchō) is an ancient nation mentioned in Suikoden V.
The Ancient Armes Dynasty was a mighty, dynastic nation that had flourished years before the establishment of the Queendom of Falena.
In the distant past, it was a superpower whose prosperity extended far and wide thanks to the blessing of the Sun Rune. This era of prosperity came to an end when the Sun Rune was said to cause the sudden insanity of the dynasty's king, leading to the overnight destruction of the nation.
The modern New Armes Kingdom proclaims itself to be the inheritor of the ancient Armes lineage but there is no genetic or cultural connection between the two.
