"The fate is cruel. We are not in a fairytale anymore, we are discussing the matters of life, life that is evil, bad, and unforgiving, the life that does not spare anyone, neither the witchers nor kings or queens."

— Calanthe of Cintra in Sword of Destiny (second book)
Calanthe serial

Calanthe in The Hexer TV series, portrayed by Ewa Wiśniewska

Calanthe Fiona Riannon of Cintra, known also as "Ard Rhena" ("Mountain Queen" in Elder Speech), the "Lioness of Cintra", was a queen of Cintra, the mother of Pavetta and grandmother of Ciri. Her nephew, Crach an Craite called her "Modron". She was known for her bravery and beauty.

Calanthe was the only child of king Dagorad of Cintra and queen Adalia, known as Fay. Because only a man could inherit the throne of Cintra, she could only be the wife of a future king. She decided to marry Roegner, prince of Ebbing. Later she married Eist Tuirseach of Skellige.

During the Slaughter of Cintra, she killed herself rather than surrendering to the invaders by jumping from the walls of the city of Cintra during its siege, after being heavily wounded in battle with Nilfgaardian forces at the Battle of Marnadal.

In the movie and TV seriesEdit

In The Hexer movie and TV series, Calanthe was played by Ewa Wiśniewska. Wiśniewska was much older than Calanthe in the book, as she was 59 at the time The Hexer was filmed, while Calanthe was only 32 at the time of "A Question of Price".
