The wyvern monarch is the upgrade of the wyvern, the sixth-level creature of the Fortress faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded wyvern nest.

Wyverns and wyvern monarchs attack with swipes of their stinging tails. The wyvern monarch’s stinger has a chance of poisoning its target for three rounds. The top creature of a poisoned troop loses 50% of its health each round. Poisoning can only be removed by the Cure spell.OffBck

Extra damage, speed, and poisonous attack makes the wyvern monarch great for taking out stronger foes, especially later in the fight when spell points are a problem. Its poisonous attack cause the target's top creature to lose 50% of its health each round, until the stack is dead or cure spell is cast.


  • Broghild is a specialist in wyvern monarchs, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after sixth level.
  • The official description for "Poisonous" effect is incorrect, as the 50% health loss is the ability of the ghost dragon's "Aging". Poisonous actually causes the top creature to lose 10% of its health per turn in 3 turns.
