Curse of the Crimson Throne
Queen Ileosa Arabasti
Queen Ileosa Arabasti (pronounced ihl-ee-OH-sah air-ah-BAS-tee) was the most recent monarch of the Varisian city of Korvosa.
Ileosa is said to have been an exceptionally beautiful young woman with dark red hair, skin as white as porcelain, and a face that few mortals could equal.
Ileosa Arbasti was born Ileosa Arvanxi to one of Cheliax’s most powerful families in Westcrown. Instead of marrying a wealthy Chelish nobleman, as was expected of her, she rejected her family’s authority and moved to Korvosa, scandalizing her family by the abandonment. Having studied King Eodred Arabasti II for some time, she was quickly able to seduce him. After falling in love with the beautiful young girl, and a scandalously short courtship, he married her in 4704 AR.
