Laela of Ulanbaat, Queen of Lomorrad

Since she was a girl Madlenka’s closest friend has been her companion Nyawe. She also developed a close relationship with her younger brother Donagh. This was partly due to the death of their mother, Laela, in childbirth when Madlenka was aged 11.

When Madlenka was 13, her father, Brosul was remarried, to Ilana, the daughter of one of the lesser nobles of Lomorrad. Her relationship with her new stepmother, who was only six years older than Madlenka and saw her as a threat, was rocky to say the least.

Ilana’s ambitions for her two children, Madlenka’s half-siblings Morna and Adgar caused numerous problems for Madlenka and ended with her being shipped off at the age of 19 to marry her second cousin, Eallair, the third born son of King Kendrick of Branwhuld.

Morna and Adgar, Madlenka’s half-siblings

Having been raised to be Queen someday, Madlenka was furious to be betrothed to Eallair, the lowly third son. She cried on Nyawe’s shoulder the entire way to Branwhuld. However, when she met Eallair she was quickly won over by his charm and easygoing nature and the two fell quickly and passionately in love.

When Branwhuld was attacked and Eallair’s family murdered, Madlenka was finally Queen but she found her priorities had changed, revolving now around her husband and soon their son. She sees that her husband is not fit to rule and does her best to hide it from his subjects by coaching him secretly.

Their son Kendrick was born in February 1102.
