Matheld Head

Ymira, Jeremus, Firentis as emissary, retreating
Matheld is one of the heroes of Calradia, a Nord woman that has been exiled from her husband's thanedom. When you reach the peninsula near the village of Fearichen, she will tell you one of her stories about it.

At some point, Matheld will talk to Ymira and offer to let Ymira marry one of Matheld's warriors once she reclaims her inheritance, which causes Ymira to walk away in disgust and leaves Matheld feeling insulted. She also finds an argument with Jeremus, disliking him decrying her as a savage for believing some of the locals near where the party is located have bred with apes. She does find an ally in Nizar, however, appreciating his ability to insult the enemy mid-battle in a well formed Old Calradic quatrain.

If asked to support the player's Right to rule, she will do so on the condition that the player would allow her, or any other lord, to settle their differences in open combat. Marnid will object to this as he says merchants tend to be the ones who get beat up in these disputes as they are used as excuses to seize caravans. She will also object to Firentis' right to rule advice, believing that the Swadian's advice will lead to people dying weak and infirm in their beds.

If elevated to lordship in Warband, Matheld will recruit Nords to fight under her and in her fiefs.


Matheld Full

"Ah. Well, if you must know, I shall tell you."

"I am from an old family in the northern lands, the daughter of a thane and also wife to one. I fought by my husband's side, his partner both in war and in peace. But my husband died of the plague, when I was still childless. My husband had decreed that I should inherit his lands, in the absence of an heir. My brother-in-law, cursed be his name, said that it was not our custom that women could inherit a thanedom. That was nonsense, but his gold bought the loyalties of enough of my husband's faithless servants for him to install himself in my hall. So I fled, something I was raised never to do, and something I hope never to do again."

"When I have enough gold to raise an army I shall go back and take what it is mine."
