The Historical Domain Characters in Axis Powers Hetalia.


Saint Joan Of Arc

Voiced by: Michiko Neya (JP, Axis Powers), Hekiru Shiina (JP, The Beautiful World), Dana Schultes (EN)


  • Hair Decorations: Is drawn with a few hairpins.
  • Reincarnation Friendship: In volume 4, France gets to meet and befriend a young girl named Lisa... who is implied to be Joan's reincarnation. A translation cam be found here, and it's clear from France's statement "When I first saw you, I thought God was pulling a cruel trick on me, but I see you're living a happy life. It seems like my wish has been granted," that he cared for her deeply at the very least.]]

  • Subordinate Excuse: Some fans ship Joan with France and use this as a possible basis for the pairing. It usually ends tragically, as Joan is only human and we all know what happened to her in the end.
  • Tsundere: Her usual fanon depiction is this, based off the one line she had, addressed to France: "Don't get me wrong; I'm not doing this for you!"

Empress Maria Theresa of Austria


Voiced by: Michiko Neya (Japanese), Stephanie Young (English)

"That sounded kind of lewd, you know..."

King Frederick II of Prussia aka Old Fritz


Now, now... You know you're not supposed to rely on me, follow through with your own strength.

  • Cool Old Guy: Middle aged during the Seven Years' War, and appears white haired and wrinkled in Prussia's chosen pictures of him.
  • Cultured Warrior: Playing flute while on a military campaign, and being displeased about Prussia spitting tea on his new garments.
  • Doting King:
    When Old Fritz was around he would always praise how I could do anything well...
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Completely and utterly Inverted. While Prussia is the most self-centered character west of Korea, he keeps remembering Fritz for the rest of his life and stays emotionally invested in him in a way no other nation-tan is in a human, France and Jeanne perhaps aside. Justified Trope, as the more or less artificial Prussia's nationalism had to be created from scrap and was greatly built on Friedrich the Great and his victorious wars.

  • Guardian Angel: Prussia believes he is "kindly looking down on me from Heaven". Once he in a sort of prayer-like manner asked the long gone Fritz to watch over his "masterplan", and at other point when preparing to go to sleep again asked him to watch over him, almost as vespers. Additionally, Frederick often called himself the "first servant of the state".
  • The Lost Lenore: A fanon interpretation, partly based on historical evidence about Frederick the Great's sexuality.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Mentors Prussia, dies. Being a mortal does that to you.
  • Nice Hat: A tricone to match that of Prussia's.
  • Parental Substitute: One of the interpretions of his relationship with Prussia.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Prussia's Red.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • The Strategist: Prussia learned the art from him.
  • Subordinate Excuse: A small but very loyal part of the fandom thinks Prussia felt this way towards him.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Potatoes. For a good reason.
    Fine, if you're not going to eat it, I'll just have to do it myself.

Wladyslaw II Jagiello, Grand Duke of Lithuania and King Consort of Poland


Voiced by: Masami Iwasaki

Queen/King Regnant Jadwiga of Poland

Voiced by: Megumi Takamoto

Queen/King Christina of Sweden

Zheng He

Spartacus

  • Worthy Opponent: Grandpa Rome considered him as one, judging by him literally SQUEALING as he learned about Spartacus's rebellion.

Emperor Nero (aka Nero-chan)

Agrippina, Nero's mother

Julius Caesar

  • Cool Old Guy: Likes a lot of different writings, such as those by Cleopatra's ancestors and Seneca.

Cleopatra VII Philopator

  • '20s Bob Haircut: As a way to show her status and chosen by Himaruya as a way to distancing himself from different sources and historians about her looks. An artistic choice, basically.

Savonarola

  • Knight Templar / Well-Intentioned Extremist: Wants to help Chibitalia end the government and the Church's degradation, but ends up destroying many works of art, or, as he calls it, "embodiments of greed and desire".

Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm

Napoleon Bonaparte

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Napoleon's education in France was not easy, due to his Corsican roots (French people around him generally mocked his Corsican traits and accent, as well as him not speaking French at first). He returns to Corsica, in the hopes of helping the Corsican independentist cause, but its leader rejects him, considering him to be too French. While feeling alienated after returning to France, he strikes a friendship with France, who considers him to be talented after watching his 'mock battles' at the military academy he was at.
  • Never Accepted in His Hometown: Bonaparte and his family had to leave Corsica and go to France shortly after his meeting with Pasquale Paoli, due to his people's (wrong) assumption that he was a French spy seeking to undermine the Corsican independentist.
