Grand Archives Key is a key item in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Key to the main entrance to the Grand Archives of Lothric.
With the fire fading, and the spreading pus of man tainting the castle, the Grand Archives closed its doors for good.
Today, only a few of its keys remain. This one likely belonged to Gotthard, one of king's Black Hand, who fled the castle.


Found in Lothric Castle, on the lifeless body of Black Hand Gotthard which can be encountered lying just before the entrance to the Grand Archives. The body will only appear once the player has defeated the first three Lords of Cinder: Abyss Watchers, Aldrich and Yhorm.


Unlocks the main entrance to the Grand Archives of Lothric.
