EWoT: Ellorien Traemane

Ellorien Traemane is an Andoran noblewoman, High Seat of House Traemane. The sign of her House is the White Stag.


She is plumply pretty, thought not as plump as she used to be, has dark hair, and is a few years older than Morgase[1][2][3].


She was first to throw her support to Morgase Trakand for the Lion Throne, and did so with Lord Abelle Pendar, Lady Arathelle Renshar, Lord Pelivar Coelan, Lady Aemlyn Carand, and Lord Luan Norwelyn. All of them were exiled while Morgase was under the influence of "Gaebril" (Rahvin)[1]. During this time, Morgase had Ellorien flogged because she asked "why?"


After Gaebril's defeat and Rand al'Thor's conquest of Caemlyn, she sneaks back into the city[4]. Rand then invites her back into the throne room of the Royal Palace and makes his intent clear of only holding onto the Lion Throne until Elayne Trakand is able to take over. Rand asks Ellorien for her support in which she replies that she would prefer to follow Dyelin Taravin[5], but Dyelin instead supported Elayne.

She is approached by the Salidar Aes Sedai delegation with certain promises[6].

The Lords Abelle, Ellorien and Luan have disappeared from the capital and cannot be found[7]. Elenia Sarand sends agents to Abelle, Ellorien and Luan to see if they might support her for the throne[8].

After leaving Caemlyn Lady Ellorien sets up camp with Abelle, Arathelle, Luan, Aemlyn, and Pelivar. There they sit to the side and stay neutral during Arymilla Marne's siege on Caemlyn against Elayne[9].

When Arymilla's force is defeated[10] a message is sent to Elayne asking for safe passage in Caemlyn for the neutral High Seats. They meet with Elayne and Luan asks for a temporary alliance with Elayne's forces to fight against the Borderlands army in Andor. Elayne reveals she invoked her right as an Aes Sedai and allowed them safe passage across Andor into Murandy to keep looking for the Dragon Reborn.

Luan and then Abelle throw their support behind House Trakand. Arathelle, Aemlyn, and Pelivar also throw their support behind Elayne, but only for Dyelin. This gives Elayne the required amount of Houses to obtain the Lion Throne. Ellorien refuses to support House Trakand and stalks out of the meeting[2].

Later Elayne invites her to the play The Death of Princess Walishen, which she attends, indicating that the two have begun working with each other[11].
