The Nilfgaard is the southernmost region of the Nilfgaardian Empire – an expansive realm that began its conquests from this land – and home to its capital. It lies south of the provinces Etolia and Gemmera. To its east is Vicovaro.
In contrast to views commonly held by Nordlings, the Empire's subjects consider the region's inhabitants to be "real" Nilfgaardians; humans of superior heritage – due to their elven ancestry – who speak a dialect derived from Elder Speech.
This coat of arms is based on main crest of ambasador Shilard´s belt in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. It was created by Juraj103. In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, many Nilfgaardians officers wear this coat of arms on their armors (Havart var Meohoen and Peter Saar Gwynleve) and the coat of arms is also wear by the soldiers of the Brigade Impera.
