New Empire
Capital Luthadel
Ruled by Elend Venture
World Scadrial
Universe Cosmere

The New Empire follows the Final Empire on Scadrial after the Collapse and Siege of Luthadel.


After the Battle of Luthadel, when Elend Venture takes control of Cett's and Straff's armies, he establishes the New Empire. Vin kills Straff in the battle, and forces Straff's general Janarle as well as Cett to swear loyalty to Elend.


Further Events in the New Empire[edit]

By the year of the Final Ascension, the New Empire has an army of over fifty thousand soldiers. The army of the New Empire is known for its well trained warriors.[citation needed] The last year of its existence is affected by battles against Ruin's Koloss armies and natural disasters.

One of Elend's primary goals as emperor is to secure the cities containing the storage caverns to ensure those supplies are available to the empire's people. Elend and Vin rescue the city of Vetitan which is being attacked by koloss and claim it for the New Empire; Elend makes its (formerly skaa) leader, Fatren, a lord.

In the course of time, each inner Dominance comes under the reign of the New Empire. However, its capital, Luthadel falls victim to revolts and a House War due to Ruin's influence on King Penrod through a Hemalurgic spike.[1] The survivors escape from the natural disasters into the cache of Luthadel or into the Pits of Hathsin.

During the Battle of Hathsin, both Elend and Vin die. Technically, Sazed is very briefly emperor before his Final Ascension.
