Falka was the oldest daughter of Redania's King Vridank and his first wife, Beatrix of Kovir. Three years after the wedding of King Goidemar of Temeria and Riannon, Falka became the leader of a rebellion that grew notorious. During the rebellion, Falka apparently killed her father, two half-brothers - Heltmult and Denhard - and her father's second wife - queen Cerro. She also imprisoned the then-pregnant Riannon.

While in prison, Riannon gave birth to a set of twins and then went mad. Around the same time, Falka also gave birth; she left her newborn into the hands of the deranged prisoner. Not long after, the rebellion was quelled and Falka was tried and condemned to die by burning on a stake; henceforth, people of Temeria and Redania have thrown a figure representing Falka on the bonfires during the Saovine celebrations. According to the legend, Falka cursed all the people present, and promised that they and their progeny would suffer in the hands of a child bearing her blood.

Later information dug up by Fenn would suggest that Fiona was actually Falka's daughter, not Adela. And also that she carried elder blood in her veins.

Andrzej Sapkowski Edit

Blood on your hands, Falka,

Blood on your dress.
Burn, burn, Falka, and die,
die in agony for your crimes!

— pg(s). 1, Time of Contempt (UK edition)

The Witcher (PC) Edit

The book The History of the World by Roderick de Novembre tells the tale of Falka's fate. Sharp-eyed players can also spot her name now and again in the game in the conversations one can overhear.

Trivia Edit

  • "Falka" in Elder Speech is gvalch'ca which can be translated as falconess.
