Wyrn the King
|Wyrn the King|
After Wulfden the First converted to Shu-Dereth, the original text of Wyrn the King was greatly altered by Fjordell priests to make the work seem more aligned with Derethi doctrine. Among other changes, these altered versions of the poem depict Wyrn as being Derethi and make frequent references to the importance of the Derethi god, Jaddeth.
Sarene discovers an unaltered version of the ancient poem in a copy of the book Seor's Encyclopedia of Political Myths in Elantris. The book disproves much of the rhetoric and propaganda of the Derethi church and uses the alteration of the poem as an example. The original poem makes no references to Shu-Dereth and depicts Jaddeth as a minor god associated with the rocks below the ground. Sarene remarks that Fjorden's priesthood would be greatly embarrassed if knowledge of their tampering became known.
