Curse of the Crimson Throne
King Eodred II
King Eodred Arabasti II was the last 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 is steady if unexceptional, and he is known for having a keen skill at dealing with the noble houses of both Korvosa and Cheliax. He has negotiated numerous favorable trade agreements with Korvosa’s former mother country, and is respected for initiating numerous good works within the city. His private life is marked by scandal and excessive spending, and Eodred is 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: Queen Ileosa Arabasti.
King Eodred Arabasti II died on 23 Desnus 4708 AR after a long illness. Immediately after his death, riots have broken out all over Korvosa rebelling against the lack of information on his mysterious illness and the soon-to-be supreme ruling Queen Ileosa Arabasti.
