It's kind of like Zelda where there are games that are undoubtedly related to each other, and there's implications that they're all related in a single universe or something.
There are thirteen games in the series.
FE1 - Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi - The original game with Marth on the continent of Archanea.
FE2 - Fire Emblem Gaiden - A gaiden game taking place after FE1 on a different continent, Valencia.
FE3 - Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo - Direct sequel to FE1 a few years later. Also includes an abridged remake of FE1.
FE4 - Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu - Takes place on another continent, but the backstory says that it all takes place a very long time before FE1 and the continent, Jugdral, is south of Archanea.
FE5 - Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 - Midquel to FE4 that takes place in the middle of the game, in Jugdral's Thracian peninsula.
FE6 - Fire Emblem: Fūin no Tsurugi - Seemingly completely unrelated to the previous games, on Elibe. The one with Roy.
FE7 - Fire Emblem - Prequel to FE6 a few years earlier.
FE8 - Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones - Also seemingly completely unrelated to the previous games, on Magvel.
FE9 - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - This one too, on Tellius. The one with Ike.
FE10 - Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn - Direct sequel to FE9 a few years later.
FE11 - Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - Remake of FE1.
FE12 - Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~ - Remake of FE3.
FE13 - Fire Emblem Awakening - Takes place thousands of years after Marth's time. Archanea is now Ylisse. Tons of allusions to every single game in the series.
