- Francesca about Aen Seidhe, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game
Audio version:
Francesca Findabair voice line

Enid an Gleanna (in Elder Speech meaning Daisy of the Valleys), also known as Francesca Findabair, is an elf, a sorceress and was the queen (now duchess) of the elves of Dol Blathanna as decreed by the Imperator Emhyr var Emreis. She is considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world, by quite a margin. She is also a founding member of the Lodge of Sorceresses.

She helped Vilgefortz during the Thanedd coup.

Biography Edit

Geralt first meets the elf during the gathering at Thanedd. Later, she was captured by Philippa Eilhart's forces because she had allied herself with Nilfgaard. She was responsible in smuggling in Scoia'tael into the fortress. After the coup, Francesca became queen of the elves in Dol Blathanna by Emhyr. However, once she became queen she was to denounce Scoia'tael actions, as well as not calling back the Scoia'tael to Dol Blathanna so they could continue to harass the Northern Kingdoms while Nifgaard invaded.

Shortly after she became queen, she, along with other sorceresses, were sought out by Philippa Eilhart. She communicated via projection, and the sorceresses formed the Lodge, a secret society of sorceresses dedicated to ensuring the survival of magic. They agreed to meet later in person, and Francesca was permitted to bring two potential initiates with her in the next meeting.

After meeting with the emperor's head of military intelligence, she met with the elven Sage, Ida Emean. After discussing their expectations of the Lodge, Francesca decompressed Yennefer, whom she captured via artifact compression for over a month. While dinning with Yennefer and Ida, Francesca explained to Yennefer that she compressed her in order to smuggle her out of Thanedd and hide her away, and plans to introduce both her and Ida to the Lodge. The three teleport to Montecalvo where they meet the other sorceresses.

Andrzej Sapkowski Edit

Behind the couple, walked an attractive woman with very long, dark golden hair, and a grey-green dress decorated with lace, which rustled as she moved.

"Francesca Findabair, also called Enid an Gleanna, the Daisy of the Valleys. Don't goggle, Witcher. She is widely considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world."

"Is she a member of the chapter?" he whispered in astonishment. "She looks very young. Is that also thanks to magical elixirs?"

"Not in her case. Francesca is a pure blooded elf. (...)"

CD Projekt's The Witcher franchise Edit

In "The Price of Neutrality" premium module Edit

Reim, the elven scout mentions her, in a comment to Geralt about mages.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Edit

She does not appear in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. However, she has been mentioned a few times during conversations in the game.

Journal entry Edit

Though she does not appear in our story, the elf Francesca Findabair, known also as Enid an Gleanna or the Daisy of the Valley, certainly deserves mention. After the coup on Thanedd Island, during which she sided with the mages who had allied themselves with Nilfgaard, Francesca became the queen of Dol Blathanna, the state of the Free Elves created somewhat whimsically by Emperor Emhyr. Enid is widely considered the most beautiful woman in the world. This pureblood Aen Seidhe with dark gold hair and penetrating azure eyes is also a powerful sorceress, possessing a tremendous command of the famed elven magic.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Edit

After the battle at Kaer Morhen, Yennefer, Triss and Avallac'h concluded that in order to defeat the Wild Hunt, they needed help from the Lodge of Sorceresses. According to Triss, unfortunately Francesca would not join them, refusing to leave her realm while the war continued.
