Etruria (エトリア王国 Etoria Ōkoku) is one of the two largest countries in Elibe. Its capital city is Aquleia. The Kingdom of Etruria is known to have established itself as a country of artisans and is famous for the St. Elimine Church, which is based there. The Etrurian Military has three generals, similar to Bern's three Dragon Generals, who are appointed by the King.
It may be noted that Light Magic in Elibe is often associated with Etruria, due to the presence of the St. Elimine Church and thus several light magic users having a form of connection to Eturia through their membership in the church. Etruria is also famed for their excellent Troubadour and Valkyrie units. In fact, all the playable Troubadours and Valkyries in Elibe are from Etruria (Priscilla, Clarine, and Cecilia).
St. Elimine of the Eight Legends who fought in the Scouring founded the country, as well as the Elimine Church and its religion. In Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, it is ruled by King Mordred, who grieves for his missing son, Prince Mildain.

The Rasenna were a civilization centered in modern-day Tuscany, which derives its name from them. They were eventually supplanted by the Roman civilization. The Roman name for the area they inhabited was Etruria, while the people was called Etruscans.
Etruria was also the name of an Italian client-state created by Napoleon.
