~ Naofumi cursing Melromarc and the world it belonged

The Kingdom of Melromarc is the main antagonistic faction in the first four volumes of The Rising of the Shield Hero light novel series, the first saga of its original webstory version, and the current run of its anime series. It is the name of the country the Four Legendary Heroes were summoned to.

The Kingdom of Melromarc summoned four teenagers from other worlds to make them the Four Legendary Heroes, but the kingdom held great grudge against Naofumi Iwanari, who was summoned as the Shield Hero, due to the previous Shield Hero was a protector to the Demi-Humans as well as the woeful reign and manipulation from Malty Melromarc, its First Princess. However, there were still friendly allies to Naofumi in the kingdom, whether they were citizens or aristocrats.


The Kingdom of Melromarc is a kingdom in Raphtalia's World with supreme authority upon matriarchy. In this country, the Queen is the true ruler so she holds power over the king. Nevertheless, the current Queen, Mirellia Q. Melromarc, gave her husband authority to rule as she sees fit while she is away dealing with diplomatic relations. The heir to Melromarc's throne belonged to Melty Q. Melromarc, since the eldest princess Malty S. Melromarc was unpopular among the citizens due to her corrupt rule.

During this time the Waves ravaged Melromarc and other regions of the world. This resulted in the destruction of demi-human protected village. King Aultcray Melromarc XXXII summoned the heroes and asked them to fight for the waves. His rash actions caused tension of the international community

Upon hearing the news, the Queen was horrified and tried to release the pent up tensions. All the negotiation done by the queen where undone by the actions of the King and the Church of the Three Heroes' cumulative actions.

Unbeknownest to the Queen, the King himself, under the manipulation of his eldest daughter, blamed the Shield Hero, Naofumi Iwanari, for framed atrocity under a false claim. This increased the tension on the world community and caused Naofumi to be extremely unpopular among many aristocrats of the Kingdom. Naorfumi became furious upon discovering Malty's true identity, and he vowed to topple the Kingdom and destroy the world until Raphtalia calmed him down.

Later, Naofumi helped people during his travel and made some genuiue friends, who were moved by the Shield Hero's actions and disgusted by the Kingdom's incompetence. However, Naofumi refused to trust in other royalty like Melty or trying to reconcile with the King to fight against the Wave, unless the King and his eldest daughter were properly punished.

After a conflict between the King and the Shield Hero, Naofumi was framed by the followers from the Church of the Three Heroes and went on running, until he managed to topple the Church and persuaded the three other Heroes to form a begrudgingly proposed alliance. After Queen Mirellia returned, she discovered what Naofumi had suffered and was very angry. The Queen punished all those involved and proved the innocence of the Shield Hero, revoking King Aultcray and Malty from their royal idenities and replacing the Church of the Three Heroes with the Religion of Four Saint Faith. After that, the tension between Naofumi and Melromarc called in an end.
