In Brotherhood: FF15 anime, as a child Noctis and his dad gets attacked by the daemon Marilith and was injured in the process. And that's why he ends up going to Tenebrae for rehab.

I interpreted that whole scene as purely metaphorical. Like Cloud's final duel with Sephiroth in the Lifestream at the end of FF7. Noctis had friends and family to lend him strength; Ardyn had only solitude and bitterness as allies. At least, that's how I'm choosing to interpret things, because everyone deserves their happy endings in this game. Also, Noctis's buddies survived for a while in Niflheim for a while when separated from Noctis and unable to call their weapons. They're crafty enough to survive.

Also, about Ardyn he was a chosen king to end the blight, and the jealous king was the one who branded him as impure and usurped the throne/family line.
