The Ancient Dragon Soul is a boss soul in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Soul of the great ancient dragon that stands magnificently, deep within the shrine. This powerful being stands and waits, for whoever may visit him.
Use the dragon soul, created by those who peered into the essence of the soul, to acquire numerous souls, or to create something of great worth.


It can be found in the memory of an Ancient Dragon in Brightstone Cove in The Duke's Dear Freja boss room on the player's second visit to it after beating Freja.

To obtain this soul, the player must first be sure to have spoken to the Ancient Dragon on top of the Dragon Shrine and obtained the Ashen Mist Heart.

There will be a crystal at the back of The Duke's Dear Freja arena; interact with it and the player will enter a memory. Interact with the Dragon head to obtain the soul. 


Consume for 75,000 souls or trade with Weaponsmith Ornifex to acquire the Curved Dragon Greatsword.


  • It's possible that the Dragon corpse/statue hanging from the roof of the arena is the real or original Ancient Dragon and that the one on top of the Dragon Shrine is, in some way, a fake. It drops a Giant Soul instead of the actual Ancient Dragon soul, as well as a Petrified Dragon Bone.
