The Empire is moving quickly. Edelgard must have been preparing for this for a while now.

If you really think about it, she must have been planning for this even before you got the Sword of the Creator...

Of course she was always a step ahead of us. We were blinded by the ball and the Battle of the Eagle and Lion, and everything else...

Half of the Empire's six great noble families have declared their support for Edelgard.

Ferdinand

Of the other three, Lord Vestra was assassinated. Hubert, his son, will succeed him.

Ferdinand
volume_up

Bernadetta's father, Count Varley, is under house arrest. His wife is now supporting Edelgard.

Ferdinand
volume_up

And my father...he was stripped of his role as prime minister. As a result, House Aegir has lost all of its power, all of its lands. We have lost everything.

I didn't think it possible that the Imperial princess could ascend the throne so easily.

Linhardt
volume_up

However, it seems that both my father and Caspar's are supporting Edelgard...

Linhardt

Having both the Minister of Domestic Affairs and Minister of Military Affairs on your side gives you total control over the Empire's military and finances.
