The Three Princes are hero units encountered in the Dungeon Keeper 2 Campaign.


The Princes, named Balder, Felix and Tristan are the King's three sons who have been ordered by their father to defend their Kingdom. They wear armor that is similar to that of the Lords of the Land, and all three of them wield a longsword in one of their hands.

Although there is talk of them as the player proceeds through the main campaign, they don't actually make an appearance until the nineteenth level on the main campaign of the game. On this level, the player must ambush, capture and convert all three of the Princes to reveal the portal gem that will take them to the last level in the game.

There is a flaw to getting this gem though, as all three Princes must be ambushed and captured all at once, otherwise the remaining two will flee through a Hero Gate, and the mission will be lost if the player attempts to capture them one at a time. Furthermore, if a Prince dies while knocked unconscious for too long or killed, the mission will also be failed.


  • If you're able to place secret doors near Hero Gates, they will not attempt to run away, making the level a lot easier.
  • The easiest way to deal with the princes is to carefully lure the princes onto stone bridges by possessing an Imp, then selling off part of the bridge, trapping the prince on an island. They never try to flee through lava.
  • The Princes also make an appearance on a few secret levels in the Dungeon Keeper 2 1.7 Patch.
  • Prince Felix is the only one of the three princes wearing a helmet, the helmet is of maximilian armor design.
  • Most of the royal hero characters in the game wear purple cloth.
  • The Princes were sent by Reginald to destroy Keeper Carrion when he learnt of Nemesis' search for Harmonia's Dark Angels. They were later sent to round up support against you when he became anxious about your winning streak. They also tried, and failed, to turn your minions against you.
