Astora is a mentioned location in Dark Souls and Dark Souls III.

Lore Edit

Some time before the events in Lothric, Astora was once a refined land hinted to possess a highly advanced culture and society, recognized for its nobility.[1] Notable are its high-ranking knights,[2][3] royalty,[1] and skilled craftsmen.[4] Both the fire-warding heraldic symbol and the color blue are associated with knights of Astora.[2][3]

Legend has it that, at some point in the past, a dark beast assaulted Astora, and it was defeated by "the sword of one most noble".[5] The spirit was then sealed within a ring.[6]




  • The art of Divine smithing seems to be a common trait in the land of Astora, as hinted by some items and characters within the game.
