From Final Fantasy Wiki

Duke Bestrald Larg (ベストラルダ・ラーグ, Besutoraruda Rāgu), or Prince Bestrada Larg is one of two rival Dukes seeking power in Final Fantasy Tactics, the other being Duke Goltanna. Larg is the Duke of Gallionne, and is represented by the White Lion crest and defended by the Order of the Northern Sky Knights. He is the brother of Queen Louveria and is one of her staunchest supporters. He is forty years old and a Leo.

Prior to the Lion War

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Upon the death of Barbaneth Beoulve, Larg takes his eldest son Dycedarg as his personal assistant, and the next eldest Beoulve, Zalbag, becomes leader of the Order of the Northern Sky knights. When Ramza, the youngest of Barbaneth's male heirs, defies Dycedarg's orders and rescues Marquis Elmdore from the Corpse Brigade, Larg commends Ramza despite Dycedarg's objections.

Larg knew about the kidnapping of Princess Ovelia, which was set up using Northern Sky knights disguised as knights of the Order of the Southern Sky to frame Goltanna. In truth, Dycedarg was behind the kidnapping, even hiring Delita Heiral to do the actual kidnapping, though he was unaware that Delita was a double-agent for Goltanna. However, Larg did stand much to gain had Ovelia been killed. This would have meant that the young child Prince Orinus would become king, resulting in Larg becoming regent. Had Ovelia become Queen, Goltanna would likely end up as regent.

The Lion War and Death

Following the sudden death of the King, both Larg and Goltanna attempted to enthrone their candidates for King, resulting in the War of the Lions. It all culminated into the Battle of Fort Besselat, where the Northern Sky Order besieged the Southern Sky's primary stronghold. During the battle, an engineer named Barich working for the Church of Glabados who was secretly orchestrating the war for its own purposes, spread Mosfungus poison throughout the Northern Sky ranks. This weakened the knights, including both Larg and Dycedarg.

Dycedarg, somewhat less affected than the Prince, discovered Larg lying down at the top of a hill overlooking the garrison. Larg would have recovered from the poison, but at that moment Dycedarg betrayed him, stabbing him with a dagger. As Larg died, he revealed that Dycedarg was the one who engineered Barbaneth's death as well, leading Zalbaag to question Dycedarg's intentions.
