SoulCalibur V Characters Guide: Hildegard Hilde von Krone

Hilde von Krone was born in Germany and she is the daughter of the king who once ruled the fictional kingdom of Wolkrone.

Hilde appears in both SoulCalibur IV and SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny, and she is also a playable character in SoulCalibur V.


After her father was locked in the castle’s tower because of the state of insanity he was in, Hilde von Krone saw herself in the position of having to rule the kingdom.

With the help received from allies, Hilde resisted the attacks that the Azure Knight brought upon her castle.

Even if Hildegard did not experience a happy childhood, she learned to be stronger and capable of taking care of the responsibilities within the kingdom.

When the notice that Soul Edge was gaining power reached Hilde’s ears, she gathered all her soldiers and departed towards Soul Edge’s last known location, the Ostrheinsburg Castle.

Hildegard “Hilde” von Krone and her soldiers came out victorious from the battle with Soul Edge, leaving Siegfried, who was wielding the holy sword Soul Calibur, to destruct Soul Edge.

Unfortunately, even with Nightmare defeated, terror was still upon Hilde’s people so she decided to leave and try to settle her kingdom in other location.

After a long search she managed to do so, and she thought that everything was going to be better.

One day, she received a message from Siegfried, who wanted to let her know that a war upon her throne was about to start.

Hilde gathered her troops and with help from Siegfried, she wanted to put an end to the Evil Seed and bring peace to her kingdom.

Hildegard “Hilde” von Krone is described as a  brave and strong princess, as well as very honorable, according to her quotes.
