Femiscyra, home of the Woman Warrior, is an isolated kingdom in Dragon Quest IV.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

A castle east of Burland, it is secluded due to its location within an impassable mountain range and a recent volcanic eruption which sealed it off from the outside world; the barrier can only be penetrated with a Magma staff found in the Zamoksva treasury that the party is able to recover and make use of. Femiscyra is inhabited almost exclusively by militant women, with only a few men (such as the priest) scattered here and there.

The Chosen Ones venture to the kingdom in order to retrieve the Zenithian shield, which they have learned is required to gain entry to the Stairway to Zenithia. Upon arrival, the Hero and party are implicated in the theft of a Bronze rosary. Though not trusting them entirely, the Queen allows them to prove their innocence, but with one member of the party staying behind bars.

The Hero & his/her party find the true thief, Kirk Buzzer, in the Cove's Cove and retrieve the rosary. In return, the queen allows the captured party member to go free, and giving them both the Ultimate Key & Zenithian shield.

Remake changes[edit]

  • In the NES version, it's possible to be in the castle at night if you save there and then change it to night before saving at Heaven's Haven. Doing so results you in starting the game in the castle at night and with no on in there. The remakes simply start the game back in Endor if last saved in Heaven's Haven.
