  • Whoever leads the Marley is also the main antagonist of the entire Attack on Titan series since he is the one that sends the titans to Eldia and continues this war, but who is it did they ever reveal it?

    • The leader has not been revealed, but I suspect that whoever they are is not necessarily the main antagonist. There's still a lot we don't know about the history of Marley and Eldia or what the First King was doing when he took a bunch of his people into effective exile on Paradis. The Eldians in the Marley army seem united in agreement that the ones on Paradis need to die, and we don't know if that's due to cultural brainwashing or a conclusion they've drawn on their own due to what they've learned. I'd totally buy it if the First King's will turns out to be the biggest problem in the series and that wouldn't be a traditional antagonist.

    • We don't even know if there is a single, centralized leader. Marley could very well be run by a military junta (basically a council system) or a parliament type system.

    • Willy. But it's Magath now I think.

      The tybers were in fact the leaders of Marley, much like the reiss were and still royalties of paradise island. Magath is now probably the leader or there might be some tyber families remaining that willy prepared just in case.

    • i suppose they have leaders but they are not imporant compared to Magath and the Tyburs. Honestly, sending titans to paradis seems to be more of a decision supported by the country as a whole over the last century not just the chocie of one individual.

      As far as I knew in the Manga, the Tyburs were/are leaders of Marley. However, only a select Marleyians knew about the truth. The rest believed in those puppet leaders.

    • I'm hoping to see more of the Marley leadership, other than Magath. Surely a country as powerful as Marley would have some sort of government body/council. Even the Paradis government has an assembly (which we are seeing in Season 3 right now).

      No doubt that Marley has a council of sorts. However, it is probably in shambles after Erens' attack at the festival.

    • Now that tyburs are also eldians, we really needed to know more of key people of marley-born/pure marleyan behind the government instead of an eldian ashamed of their ancestor's sins

    • We probably would, if we were going to spend more time in Marley, but I suspect the next leg of the story is going to see Marley invading Paradis. In that case the only character who is really going to matter is Magath, now that he's become head of the military (since Willy arranged for all his superiors to be killed by Eren). Presumably Magath has a boss somewhere either a Tybur or a Marleyan puppet leader, but he's probably going to become the face of the Marleyan leadership as far as the readers are concerned.

      Yeah that makes sense.

    • Is everyone here serious?

    • This is an interesting question, since we know that the Tyburs were the shadow rulers, but it seems Eren might have wiped them out (or at least killed Willy and took the tybur titan), so it's likely that they have a new ruler, possibly Magath.

    • I had some issues with the initial Marley arc. It was mostly great, but you're telling me that it was that small family of Tyburs, mainly Willy and Lady Tybur that were running the whole show? 

      Willy himself said that Marley was the one that wanted to be war mongers, that the Tyburs just allowed it. Well then how are they the rulers though? Who's the ones makig the decisions? Is it military rule like Eldia? Or do they have a president, or king? Prime minister? A senate?

      And it's enough for Willy to say, "Magath, you're in charge of Marley now." If the Marleyan people don't even know who really rules them, how can Magath just take control based on what Willy decides?

    • Willy and the Tybur family seemed to be the Kingmakers of the country of Marely.

      However they seem to choose whatever leader they seem pleased with as long it doesn't affect them to a degree.
