The Stormwind Royal Guard is a part of the Stormwind Army. They are the personal guards of the House of Wrynn and are charged with protecting the King and his family.[citation needed]


First War

Prior to the events of the First War, they were known as the King's Honor Guard. Sir Anduin Lothar was among their numbers.[1]

World of Warcraft

They were protecting the throne room of Stormwind Keep. Some of them would change into Onyxia's Elite Guards during A [60R] The Great Masquerade, revealing themselves to be black dragonspawns disguised as humans to protect Lady Katrana Prestor, in truth Onyxia.

During the War Against the Nightmare, many of Varian's personal contingent were turned to sleep. Its captain of the guard stood by Anduin when he fell to sleep.[2]


For the king!

A group of Stormwind Royal Guards can now be found patrolling the roads of Elwynn Forest on horseback. Several more may also be found in Northshire Valley, keeping the road open and protecting the Abbey.

By order of the Stormwind Royal Guard, all gnolls in the region known as Three Corners in the southwestern corner of Redridge Mountains were wanted dead.[3]

Mists of Pandaria

Prince Anduin was assigned a Royal Bodyguard while on the Timeless Isle. Several royal guards followed King Varian Wrynn during the Siege of Orgrimmar, including Highguard Kailus and Highguard Tyrius.


After the death of Varian Wrynn, some of them turn out to be Felblade Assassins wanting to assassinate the new King Anduin Wrynn in the name of the Burning Legion. The real royal guards then fought against the invaders with the help of adventurers.[4]

They were later alert when the Veiled Hand and the traitor Melris Malagan infiltrated the Keep.[5]
