The Kingdom logo
Faction NameThe Kingdom
An exclusive faction of the Walking Dead universe, The Kingdom is a beacon of hope, civilization and order in the wake of apocalyptic chaos. Set in a converted school, it exudes a nostalgic, almost surreal atmosphere with its unique medieval-inspired mannerisms and aesthetics. A charismatic leader, King Ezekiel rules with wisdom and benevolence, maintaining peace and prosperity in his kingdom. From the gardens of greenery to the dedicated soldiers known as "Knights", the Kingdom is an example of unity, resilience and the indomitable will of the human spirit to survive and thrive. Despite the horrors beyond her borders, the kingdom perseveres, providing her with shelter, friendship, and a semblance of life.


The Kingdom is a unique and intriguing faction in the fascinating universe of The Walking Dead. At first glance, it appears to be a wonderful and almost idyllic community, ablaze with lush greenery, manicured gardens and well-preserved buildings. But beneath this calm facade lies a formidable force led by a charismatic and extraordinary leader, King Ezekiel.
This peaceful yet powerful entity was originally formed from a handful of survivors seeking solace in a once abandoned school campus. Over time, through strength, determination, and unity, these ordinary individuals transformed their haven into a fully functioning, self-sustaining society called "The Kingdom." Today, this faction has a strong community of fighters, hunters, gardeners, builders, and educators, all of whom contribute to the overall growth and security of their haven. The Kingdom ethos is primarily a communal way of life based on mutual respect, trust, hard work and a sense of shared responsibility. Despite many setbacks due to external threats and internal conflicts, they have demonstrated indomitable resilience and adaptability. The engaging and strong spirit of the kingdom not only sets them apart, but reinforces their commitment to not just survive, but thrive in The Walking Dead's post-apocalyptic world.


The Kingdom began as a small temporary community in Washington, D.C., on the site of a former school. After the outbreak began, school administrator Ezekiel took the initiative to fortify the area and provide a safe haven for the surviving students. His natural charisma and resourcefulness attracted other survivors, who gradually grew into a full-fledged community known as the Kingdom.
Ezekiel took leadership, and his unconventional approach created a unique community culture. He declared himself "king" and developed a medieval-type society with a royal court, knights, and theatrical language. Despite its fantasy elements, the Kingdom was a self-contained, practical community. They raised livestock, crops, and effectively defended themselves against walkers and hostile human factions.
While on a supply run, the kingdom's knights encountered a ruthless group known as the Saviors. The Kingdom struck a painful bargain, agreeing to offer the Saviors food and weekly supplies in exchange for their "protection". Although this made Ezekiel reluctant, he went through with the deal to avoid a violent confrontation. Over time, relationships began to form with other communities such as Hilltop and Alexandria. Esther, the de facto ambassador, played a crucial role in these alliances. These connections eventually culminated in a united front against the Saviors, marking a major event in the Kingdom's their evolution from a zoo-owned castle to a strategic player on the post-apocalyptic scene.
The Kingdom is the epitome of survival in a Walker infested world. Through creativity, courage and unity, this community has continually adapted and triumphed in the face of adversity, playing a vital role in the complex history of the Walking Dead universe.
