Renner persuades Ramposa to hide Re-royal Estize’s treasures around the city in “The Witch of the Falling Kingdom,” the twelfth episode of “Overlord” season 4. Ramposa sends Climb to hide the treasures, hoping that Ainz will desire to find them and spare the city. From the city, Aura retrieves a demonic magic object. Returning to the palace, Climb discovers that Ainz has taken the throne and killed Ramposa. With Gazef’s sword as the reward, Ainz agrees to combat Climb. After a brief struggle, Ainz effortlessly dispatches Climb. After being revived, Climb discovers that Ainz has turned Renner into an immortal monster.
Climb consents to Renner’s plea to swear allegiance to Ainz and spend all of eternity as a demon. Albedo lauds Renner for finally disclosing that she willingly offered Re-Estize to Ainz in exchange for her and Climb’s immortality. Renner prepares to make Climb eternal before making love to him, revealing her real, evil nature. Albedo approaches Phillip and tells them she made a vow to his father that she would torture Phillip to death in retaliation for his causing Re-demise Estize’s via his selfishness and foolishness. When Ainz encounters the human nobility who vowed allegiance to him, he gives them Re-realm Estize’s to split among themselves as vassals of the Sorcerous Kingdom. Ainz is happy that everyone now knows never to oppose him again.

Now that the Royal Capital is about to disintegrate, Renner finally encounters Ramposa, who intends to pass away with grace like his son. He informs Climb and Renner of a hidden tunnel and commands them to flee to save their own lives. Unfortunately, Renner won’t budge, insisting that they can conceal the Royal riches in the city to stop Aainz from causing more damage.
This appeals to Ramposa, who chooses to comply with Renner’s request to give the treasure to Climb so that he can conceal it safely. Aura eventually finds a demonic artefact in the kingdom and kills everyone guarding it to take it for himself.
After hiding the loot, Climb eventually returns to the castle, where he is surprised to discover that Aainz has succeeded in seizing power. Renner is sobbing for his deceased father, although Ramposa has already passed away. Climb surmises that Demiurge may have used the same power to persuade Renner to murder her father as he uses it to force him to lower his head in front of Aainz. Aainz is thus challenged to a duel by Climb.
Surprisingly, the Sorcerer King agrees to the combat on the condition that the victor will retain his sword. Climb uses a mystical ring’s powers to maximise his potential when the fight starts. However, he could hardly hurt Aainz when he charged at him. The single-sided combat is over in a flash as Aainz loses interest in it.

After losing his combat with Aainz, Climb finally opens his eyes and discovers himself on a bed. Renner immediately approaches him and tells him that the Sorcerer King has transformed her into a demon. Climb seems upset by the shocking information, but she insists that she did it to ensure that Aainz spared his life. He continues by saying that she will now live forever, which is really sad if she is alone.
Because of this, she asks Climb to recognise Aainz as the King so that he, too, can become a demon and attain eternity. She does, however, mention that Aainz will put him through a trying test to see how devoted he is. On the other hand, Climb is incredible with everything and embraces anything. Renner encounters Albedo when he is sleeping, and he gives her the Seed of the Fallen.
Albedo states that she was primarily responsible for the Re-Estize Kingdom’s systematic destruction as she thanked her. All this time, Renner has been working covertly with the Sorcerer Kingdom. She was only interested in obtaining immortality for herself and Climb so they could live together forever. As a result, Renner betrayed her family and the citizens of the Re-Estize Kingdom.
Why Does Albedo Harass Philip?
Albedo goes directly to visit Philip after meeting Renner and giving him the Seed of the Fallen as promised. He feels revitalised when he meets her, almost as if he expects her to thank him for his loyalty and previous cooperation. Unfortunately, Albedo is thinking about something else. She welcomes him and tells him a special surprise is waiting for him. Inferring that it is a gift in appreciation for his loyalty, Philip is happy to open the package.
He is surprised by what he finds inside, as Albedo literally handed him the severed heads of his people, who had perished in the terrible massacre. Philip quickly recognises how severe the issue is, but before he can take anything, Albedo breaks some terrible news. She tells Philip that his father asked him to take responsibility for his actions in his final hours.
His egotistical behaviour was what initially caused the Re-Estize Kingdom to crumble. Because of this, even his father wished for him to pay for his actions. Thus, Philip is cruelly tortured by Albedo without the chance to plead for his life. Sadly, he could scarcely stand it for long and passed shortly after.
What Takes Place After Re-Estize Kingdom’s Royal Capital Is Destroyed?
The nobility of the Re-Estize Kingdom realised it would be folly to oppose Aainz after the destruction of the Royal Capital. As a result, when they eventually had the chance to meet him, they were happy to swear allegiance to him. The Re-Estize Kingdom is subsequently divided among these nobles after Aainz, who had been brutal until this point, chooses to let them keep it. They all agree to the requirement that the formerly illustrious Kingdom become a vassal of the Sorcerer Kingdom. Aainz is now confident that he has warned other kings who want to oppose his kingdom or challenge his power strongly enough.
