If Chrom doesn't have a son

Given that Emmeryn was made the Exalt, and not just a regent, I think it's safe to say that Ylisse doesn't practice male primogeniture. Lucina would become Exalt.

Yeah, it's safe to say Ylisse doesn't follow any sort of male-preference when it comes to inheriting the title of exalt.

Now, inheritance of Falchion, on the other hand, appears to be heavily implied to still follow Altean succession rules (Chrom possessed the sword from the get-go, yet wasn't in immediate exalt-inheritance position until the end of chapter 9)--which would probably mean Lucina's canon sibling would be a sister, since Altean succession rules are male-preference (do keep in mind that Marth has an older sister, and Marth was indeed first in line for the throne in FE1 and its remakes)...

If Owain marries/"companionizes" Lucina, would Lucina still be the king?

And would that make Owain the queen?


It doesn't work that way.

Think England.

If the king has a child, this child will inherit the kingdom, don't matter if it's a girl or a guy. If the king has an older daughter and an younger son, it depends of the kingdom. BTW, this is also valid for real life.

Yes, Lucina would be Exalt. I'm not sure what her husband would be called because Emmeryn didn't have one. I know in Britain, the husbands of reigning queens go by the title of "Prince" rather than "King Consort," but I've never heard the title "Exalt" used outside of Fire Emblem, so I don't know what an exalt's spouse would be (the term "Exalt" itself appears to be gender-neutral, as evidenced by the fact that it's used to refer to both Emmeryn and her father).

The line of succession would appear to be:
Emmeryn (until she "dies"; even after she returns she seems to have implicitly abdicated)
Chrom
Lucina
Lucina!Morgan (if any)
Chrom!Other(Morgan, Kjelle, Cynthia, Brady, or Inigo) (if any)
Lissa
Possibly Emmeryn!Morgan (if any) - if Emmeryn's implicit abdication didn't disinherit her descendants as well
Owain (if any)
Owain!Morgan (if any)
Lissa!Morgan (if any)

One additional quirk is that in Lissa's S-support with Donnel, it seems to imply that Lissa would lose her title if she marries a commoner.

How old was Chrom when Emm was coronated, pretty sure he was too young to be king.


Well, Emm was 11, so Chrom was probably way too young. But Lucina would probably still get the throne, IMO.


Actually Emm was at least 9 when she became Exalt

Well, if Chrom marries either Olivia or Maribelle, Lucina will still be the rightful heir to the Falchion. I think with the Falchion, it goes to whoever has the ability to use it. Based on Lucina's sibling supports, not everybody in the bloodline has the potential to use the Falchion. Although in the very end, the player finds out that the sibling DOES have the potential, it appears to me that the Falchion is just passed down to whoever proves themselves worthy first.

So it's probable that either Emmeryn and Elice just weren't capable of wielding the Falchion or Chrom and Marth proved themselves worthy of the Falchion first.

I really hope you're joking..
