Eshen is King Iadon's second wife, and Prince Raoden's adoptive mother.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Eshen was "short and slight of frame" with brownish-blonde hair beginning to grey.[1]

Eshen fit Iadon's prejudices regarding women to a fault--she was highly domestic, flighty, far from intelligent, and more prone to inane babble than intelligent discussion.[1]


Eshen relied heavily on her husband, although she did participate in Sarene's fencing lessons for a short time.[2] Unfortunately, the shock of learning of her husbands involvement with the Jeskeri Mysteries was too great, and Eshen was left a shell of her former self.[3]

She was killed fighting Fjordell soldiers when the citizens of Kae were about to be executed.[4]
