Curse of the Crimson Throne
King Eodred Arabasti II
King of Korvosa
The son of Queen Domina, Eodred was born Arkapallus Arabasti, but took the name of the popular king Eodred Arabasti I in the hopes of riding the coattails of his namesake’s successes. His reign was steady if unexceptional, and he was known for having a keen skill at dealing with the noble houses of both Korvosa and Cheliax. He negotiated numerous favorable trade agreements with Korvosa’s former mother country, and was respected for initiating numerous good works within the city. His private life was marked by scandal and excessive spending, and Eodred was known for having an expensive liking for young women. It surprised no one, that when he finally married in 4704 AR, it was a woman a third his age.
He has recently passed away, as he fell ill to some grave sickness. The Queen believes he was poisoned by a young artist who was hired to paint his portrait, Trinia Sabor.
