Marelinne R d’Oraguille – The Sentinel Queen


557 – 588

The tenth ruler of the Kingdom of San d’Oria, who reigned from 568 to 588. Cousin to the Warking. After losing her parents while she was still an infant, she was secretly adopted and raised by the family cook. When she was ten years old, the Warking suddenly died on the throne, leading to heightened tensions between regional leaders. Just when it seemed that a civil war was imminent, Marelinne’s name surfaced as the rightful successor to the throne, when it was proven that she was a blood relative of the late king.

However, the turmoil did not end there—the dispute was now over who would be the young monarch’s guardian until she was of age. Marelinne eventually grew weary of the intrigue surrounding her, and left the capital under the pretext of surveying the outer regions. She would never again return to the capital, always issuing her orders from wherever she had journeyed.

In 588, Marelinne vanished without a trace, never to be seen or heard from again. Her efforts to bolster the defenses of the outer regions were highly praised in later years.
