Where is the Best Bio of Queen Ileosa from Curse of the Crimson Throne?


Pathfinder Adventure Path General Discussion


If you google Queen Ileosa, you can find out a lot of bits and pieces about her past as a Chelaxian and her motives for coming to Korvosa in the first place. But I can't find the actual book where this information comes from, or I'm just reading over it.

I own the hardcover Curse of the Crimson Throne and the Guide to Korvosa. She doesn't get much attention in the Guide to Korvosa or the CotCT player's guide. She gets a lot of attention in the hardcover AP, but almost all of the information after the first few pages is about her role in the campaign and not about her past.

Am I just missing her biography somewhere in the hardcover book?

Is it in something else?

Incidentally, in her wiki, they say she was 30 when she died. When you match this up with information about her being less than a third of Eodred's age, it means the king was over 90. He really was pretty negligent about trying to get an heir.

Isn't the curse of the throne that no ruler ever produced an heir? (The Red Throne of Impotence as my players have refered to it).

Actuaaaaaaaaally, if you check the dates on wiki and do the math (4708 - 4687), she is 21 in Crimson Throne and married Eodred when she was 17.

It quotes her year she was born in being mentioned in 3.5 version of Crimson Throne books so uh, apparently in one of them they mentioned dates more often than in hardcover version


They regularly have age issues given either the changing publishing timeline or editing/continuity errors. Is Abrogail Thrune a young early 20s who just finished taking the throne or a mature early 30s with plenty of experience? It depends on which book you're reading and when you're playing.

This isn't really a publishing error though. Crimson Throne hardcover says that Ileosa is young woman, wiki quotes her birth and death dates and just counts her age wrong(because clearly someone did their math wrong) without giving source for her age

My favourite is The Red Queen Killed Seven Times, Sabor, Trinia. Bookmaker Press, (Korvosa, 4712).
