Part 2: The Legend of Encantadia

Updated on April 5, 2017

The Saga Continues

After telling the story of how the world of Encantadia started and how this land is divided into five kingdoms, let us now tackle the powerful gems which is the reason for almost all the wars that happened in Encantadia.

The Gems hold the powers of different elements, of which the Sanggres and holders used to defeat and to protect the gem and the others. The throne is not the only thing that the villains in these series wanted to gain but also the power of the gem. That is why there are numerous events that happen in this world where deception, murder and war happened just to get their hands on these powerful gems.

Let us see what are the abilities and powers that each gem give to their holder.
