Unlocking the Edelgard Route

FE3H How to Unlock Edelgard Route
In Chapter 11: Throne of Knowledge, in a normal playthrough Edelgard will reveal herself as the Flame Emperor and you must side with the Church of Seiros to stop her.

There is however a fourth route where you instead side with Edelgard and accompany her and the Black Eagle students through the war against the Church.

Have a Support Level of C+ with Edelgard

Before Chapter 11, you must have a Support rank of C+ with Edelgard. By then she will have revealed that she also bears the Crest of Flames.

Choose to Go to Edelgard's Coronation

FE3H Edelgard Route
During Exploration in Chapter 11, talking to Edelgard will have her ask you to accompany her to Enbarr, where she will be crowned. You can choose to go with her, at no loss, or choose to stay. Choosing to stay will lock you out of her route, however.

Be warned that doing this ends the exploration phase so only approach her after spending all your activity points.

Choose to Protect Her During the Mission

FE3H Edelgard Route Protect Edelgard
During the Chapter 11 Mission, Conflict in the Holy Tomb, Rhea will order you to attack Edelgard after the battle. If you went to the coronation, you can choose to defend Edelgard. This will lock you into the Crimson Flower route.
