Ludleth and the Ringed City

Ludleth the Exiled

I may be but small, but I will die a colossus.

As of the events of Dark Souls 3, pre-DLC, Ludleth is likely the Lord that we know the least about. For every other Lord of Cinder, we visit their home, learn about their motivations, and see them in combat, but not Ludleth. We know only that he's from Courland and he linked the fire "long ago". However, with the release of the Ringed City, I think we have ample information to make an educated guess on the true identity and significance of Ludleth of Courland.

As stated in <
Pygmy Lords thrones
(apologies for quality) are virtually identical. Slight variations are normal; Yhorm's Firelink throne doesn't actually look the same as his throne in the Profaned Capital.

The Ringed City is one of only two cities not given a proper name. As far as cities go, we have:

  • Lordran
  • Astora
  • Carim
  • Catarina
  • Balder
  • Berenike
  • Anor Londo
  • Lothric
  • Irithyll

And then

  • The Profaned Capital
  • The Ringed City

Given that we know the inhabitants of the Profaned Capitals were humans, and one giant, it's unlikely we've learned its proper name in the game. The Ringed City, though, does have hints. Ludleth is from Courland, where he was exiled from. He is a pygmy, his appearance and throne looking nearly identical to those of the pygmy lords. There's a simple conclusion to this.

The Ringed City is Courland.
