The New Armes Kingdom (アーメス新王国, Āmesu Shin Ōkoku) is a nation in Suikoden V. It is a long-standing political and military rival of the Queendom of Falena.
The New Armes Kingdom is a cooperative nation made up of five clans located to the southeast of the Queendom of Falena. The nation was established around the year SY 140 by Halad, ruler of the Ishvaak Clan. The kingdom claims to be the successor of the Ancient Armes Dynasty but there is no evidence linking the two nations whatsoever, making this more of a propaganda piece than a legitimate claim.
During the Sun Rune War, King Jalat of the Ishvaak ruled the nation. Jalat had become king after the previous king was overthrown following his failure in the Armes Invasion of SY 441.
Among the clans, the Darja Clan, most notably the Sparna family, were know as hawkish, pro-war hardliners. However, moderate groups such as the Ishavaak and Madra Clans, and the Valya family, also existed, balancing out their pro-war tendencies to a degree.
