Matilda, Abbess
Description Eldest daughter of the reigning baron of Shaddir during the Great Houses War. As a young woman she became an adherent of the (then) young Stevenic religion and went on to found a house of religious sisters of which she was the abbess. The abbey became quite wealthy in both goods and lands and the Abbess Matilda acted as overlord to many, such that she was nearly as powerful as the local baron. Her capture by insurrectionist forces in the spring of 899 was considered quite a coup.
  • The Great Houses War 4 in DargonZine 19-9 Valeran Northfield reports to Aendasia Blortnikson that Abbess Matilda was among the noteables taken captive when Beid Castle was surrendered to him
