The Gittish Empire is both an evil faction and region in IX. The empire is controlled by King Godwyn at Gittingham Palace. The Gittish Empire serves as the chief antagonist in IX.


300 years prior to the story of IX, the Gittish Empire attempted to conquer the world after allying with the evil dragon Barbarus. Believing themselves to be superior to the rest of mankind, they conquered and burned down countless lands and demanded money and women from those they conquered. However the entire empire was eventually destroyed by Greygnarl and his allies.

During the events of the game, they are ironically resurrected by one of their victims, Corvus. Now an empire of undead monsters, most members of the empire are unaware they they have died and continue with their conquest as if they were still human.
