Queen’s Thief Series © Megan Whalen Turner
Age: Mid-twenties (??)
Appeared In: The Thief, The Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, A Conspiracy of Kings
Despite her beauty, the Queen of Attolia is a cold, merciless queen who often resorts to extreme punishments when dealing with trespassers. She is intelligent and cunning, and will usually take advantage of situations where she can reap a lot of reward, personally or politically. Her unkindness is a result of her poor childhood and the activities of her traitorous barons who regularly try to usurp her throne. Although she knows that it is a necessity, she doesn’t like it when others point out her cruelty.

I don’t think she looks mean here. But I’ve always had the impression she was kind of poker-faced.
