This page's content pertains solely to Kingdom: New Lands and Kingdom: Two Crowns.

Ghosts are the souls of past monarchs that come to help their heirs at the start of their reign. A ghost is encountered by the Monarch at the start of the game on the right side. The ghost notably wears the colors of the previously played monarch, and has a crown.

The ghost helpfully shows the Monarch how to recruit subjects, buy tools, and construct buildings before disappearing with the memorable instructions: "Build, expand, defend".

King Ghost Come

A king's ghost calling the Monarch and pointing to the campfire place.

At the start of every new island after the first, the ghost appears pointing out the direction to the area to light the campfire. If the Monarch goes the wrong way from the shipwreck, the ghost follows the Monarch and points to the good direction, saying: "Come".


Ghosts are the only characters who are confirmed as dead in entirety of the Kingdom series, other than the corpse found next to the warhorse. Although, it is unknown how past monarchs have died (see Theories).
