Big Quote Left
Meve, Queen of Lyria, toyed pensively with the enormous rubies in her necklace, occasionally twisting her beautiful full lips into an ambiguous grimace.
Big Quote Right
- pg. 213, Blood of Elves (UK edition)
Meve is the queen of Lyria and Rivia. She is a widow and has at least two sons, of whom she has a rather low opinion. She was known for her wisdom and beauty, but a later battle left her face bearing wounds that became disfiguring scars. She was the one who knighted Geralt for his valour in the same battle and granted him the right to be known as Geralt of Rivia.

After the death of queen Calanthe, Meve was the only (human) female ruler in the Northern Kingdoms. After the war with Nilfgaard, she was one of the negotiators of the peace treaty.

The Witcher (PC) Edit

In the Temple Quarter, Geralt can talk with the local gossip. "I hear Rivia is ruled by a wise and strong queen. They say she was once beautiful, but she was wounded during the war. Now her face is horribly scarred."

The Witcher 2: Assassins of KingsEdit

Stennis mentions to Geralt, in Chapter II, that "Meve curses your name every time she hears it."

Blood and Wine expansion Edit

One of her two sons - Prince Anséis of Lyria and Rivia - is participating in grand chivlaric tournament near Beauclair.
