The events of Elantris take place predominantly in the country of [[Arelon]] from three separate points of view: Prince [[Raoden]], Princess [[Sarene]] and [[Gyorn]] [[Hrathen]].  Raoden is the crown prince of Arelon and is first in line to inherit the throne from his father, King [[Iadon]]. He is engaged to Princess Sarene of neighbouring [[Teod]] with the hope that their marriage will strengthen ties between their countries in the face of external aggression from the [[Fjorden|Fjorden Empire]] from which Hrathen hails.

Raoden wakes up on the morning of his planned wedding with Sarene to find that he has been taken by the [[Shaod]]. He is thrown into the city of [[Elantris (city)|Elantris]] where he befriends [[Galladon]], a fellow [[Elantrian]] who is originally from [[Duladel|Duladen]]. Galladon describes the terrible lives that Elantrians live but Raoden believes that there must be a better way. He starts a new, more optimistic, society to help newcomers to Elantris. In the process he converts [[Karata]] and [[Taan]], two Elantrian gang leaders to his cause. The third gang leader, [[Shaor]], proves to be more difficult and his men's constant attacks are barely held off by the New Elantrians.

Meanwhile Sarene arrives in Arelon to find the country in mourning for Prince Raoden. Under the conditions of their wedding contract, she must stay in Arelon but is suspicious of the circumstances surrounding his death. With no husband, Sarene throws herself into Arelish political life only to find King Iadon expects her to stay out of such matters. Sarene quickly allies herself to a group of nobles, including her uncle [[Kiin]], who are dissatisfied with the king's leadership. Together they scheme to overthrow him.
