Curse of the Crimson Throne - Friendship is Magic!
Queen of Korvosa
A beautiful, bitter, and cruel woman, Queen Ileosa Arabasti only came to Korvosa from Cheliax to seduce and marry King Eodred II in order to gain the lofty royal title she now holds. Since the King’s death, as the two of them have produced no heir, Ileosa has gained the Crimson Throne. Ileosa has mixed feelings about this arrangement: she is queen, yes, but of a city she openly despises, calling Korvosa a “backwater colonial village.”
The queen has made few friends among the nobles and elites of Korvosa, and, much to her constant fury and chagrin, some of the city’s most respected institutions (such as the Sable Company and the Acadamae) pay her only minimal respect and otherwise ignore her. While many of the noble houses continue to publicly support her, the queen knows through her spies that none of them truly want her in power.
While rumors of Ileosa’s hand in the death of the King have been disproved due the revelation that an artist – Trinia Sabor – poisoned the King, Queen Ileosa remains unpopular and her heavy-handed use of Hellknight enforcers threatens to keep the city in riots.
