Elden Ring family tree lore, explained

Bring a lot of yarn and thumbtacks.

Thanks to the work of George R.R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, the inhabitants of Elden Ring have a complicated family tree. While it's no golden broccoli of the sky, its many branches are no less impressive.

The Children of Godfrey and Marika

Godfrey, the first Elden Lord, was also the first husband of Marika. Despite being a great warrior for ages, he was eventually exiled by Marika because his warrior spirit had faded. Before his exile, he and Markia produced three children: Gowyn, Morgott/Margit, and Mohg. Godwyn was born a demigod and sired Godrick and Godefroy. Morgott/Margit and Mog were born as Omens.

The Children of Radagon and Rennala

Though they were initially meant to go to war with one another, Radagon and Rennala fell in love. Their union bore three demigod children, as Radagon was a god. When Marika cast aside her lover Godfrey, she ordered that Radagon return to her and, thus, he did. Marika then took in Radhan, Rykard, and Ranni as her stepchildren.

Marika and Radagon are actually one in the same. They are a singular god that can split themselves into two. Their pairing produced Malenia and Miquella.
