Rise of the Runelords
Queen Cressida Kroft
Queen of Korvosa
Heir to a small but proud martial house in Korvosa, Cressida was named Field Marshal of the Korvosan Guard when she was only 29. Several years later, she helped lead a rebellion against the possessed Queen Ileosa and organized the city’s defenses during its brief sojourn in the hellish realm of the infernal duke Lorthact.
She has reigned as Queen Cressida I for 25 years, alongside her husband King Aquilos I. Together, they have five children: Telus Ionas, Tyrus Allaster, Ryah Cressida, Ecclesia Ionomia, and Aquila Remalda.
