I just unlocked this today and as it was a pain I thought I'd share how I did it, just in case it helps anyone else. This is not a quick achievement to get, as you have to play a game long enough so that you are powerful enough to beat an Ascendant or Fallen Empire. And it must be the Holy Guardian version of a Fallen/ Ascendant Empire. But if you are willing to put in the time, read on!

Start a new game as a Spiritualist or Fanatic Spiritualist species, other factors and traits seem unimportant, but I personally was a Fanatic Spiritualist with Xenophobe as my secondary so I could purge troublesome heretics.

Set the game to Large (600 stars) and 3 Fallen Empires, I would also set the game difficulty to Normal, end game crises off and AI aggression to Low. I had 5 AI empires so you don't necessarily need to have 10 races all vying for systems. But if you do it is likely you will discover the Fallen Empires quicker. As the Holy Guardian empire only randomly appears you don't want to spend hours and hours playing the game just to find there are no Holy Guardians! I had to quit out of two games before I got them.....

In theory you could set the game to Small (150 stars), 1 AI enemy and 1 Fallen Empire and hope that you are lucky enough that the Holy Guardians appear. I went with a bigger game so would have more chance of getting them. Might be worth you all posting your ideas in the comment section?

If you are still unsure the empire will say in their introductory speech (and also on their diplomacy screen) that you better not touch their Holy worlds - I'm paraphrasing :) . In my case there were two Gaia holy worlds outside of their empire boundaries (planets were called Pristine Jewel and Prophet's Retreat) and two inside (Emerald Mausoleum and Walled Garden) but I couldn't 'see' the last two until I declared war on them. In the Planet Modifiers section of the Planet Summary you will also see them described as Holy Worlds.

Once you conquer their empire (or the parts of it containing the holy worlds) and have all 4 Holy worlds colonised the achievements will pop. It didn't seem to pop for me just because they were within my borders. Hopefully this helps, of course this 'solution' does rely on you knowing how to win at this game, but it's not difficult.... just very time consuming. Good luck fellow Achievement Addicts!
