I'm inclined to move this to Lan Mandragoran - is the al' part of his name, officially, or merely an embedded title? nae'blis (talk) 18:47, 27 Dec 2005 (UTC)

I agree with you. He's known more commonly as Lan anyway, not al'Lan.--Dukeruckley 13:13, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
It's the Royal title if I remember correctly. It might be considered part of the name since Rand al'Thor still seemed like a Royal name, and the al falls between his given name and family name? - Elliot N 15:03, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
It is a title every man of the Malkier Royal family gains from birth. I'm not sure, but I think women get el'. Asha'man Leyrann Gaidin 17:16, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

This viewing could just as easily refer to Lan's past. Arguments in favour of this are his origin story; oaths sworn in his name, anointed as king, given the sword.

True, but don't Min's viewings always show the future? 16:48, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
They do. I think he and Nynaeve will get one or more childs. I mean, it seems likely Rand will be just in time to save him. He is going to send an army there, and he seems to know exactly when Lan will be there. Asha'man Leyrann Gaidin 17:16, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia request

There is a request at [1] (from 2007) that [2] should be cleaned up. Anyone here willing to take it on? Jackiespeel 22:33, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

Seems to have been dealt with. Jackiespeel (talk) 13:04, November 7, 2012 (UTC)


Given that iron is no longer hard, does his oath still hold up? 01:20, August 20, 2012 (UTC)

Mandragora is the latin term for the plant Mandrake...could Jordan be referencing Dr. Strangelove?  "Mandrake!  Fix me a drink of bourbon and rain water!"  (General Jack D. Ripper-played masterfly by Sterling Hayden) 22:03, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
