"Wha– What?! Do you know who you're talking to soldier? I'm Herevard the Second, Prince of Ellander."
—To Nilfgaardian Soldier

Herevard II (Polish: Hereward II) is the successor of Hereward as Prince of Ellander, first time appearing in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. He was always considered the rightful heir and as such also obtained a proper education.[1] When Nilfgaardians conquered Vizima, he decided to not object against his new ruler and "fell in line with the new order".[2]

Etymology Edit

The name "Hereward", as in original Polish version, is derived from the Old English elements here "army" and weard "guard". This was the name of an 11th-century Anglo-Saxon leader who rebelled against Norman rule.[3] The v instead of w in English translation is for better pronunciation.

Notes & references Edit
