- his gwent card

Vattier de Rideaux, Viscount of Eiddon, was the head of military intelligence for Emperor Emhyr var Emreis. His lover was Carthia van Canten.

The intelligence chief was one of the organizers of the attack by the Scoia'tael on the mages' conference on Thanedd Island. Because the attack did not achieve its primary objective, de Rideaux and the emperor came to the conclusion that there were traitors among them, namely: Vilgefortz, Rience, Cahir, and possibly Isengrim Faoiltiarna.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of KingsEdit

Vattier de Ridaux is mentioned in Chapter III of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, two times: during the summit of mages at Loc Muinne and in the Epilogue.

The Nilfgaardian ambassador Shilard Fitz-Oesterlen and Letho talk about Vattier. The latter reveals to Geralt that he succeeded in obtaining information from Yennefer about the Lodge of Sorceresses. Apparently only Vattier, the Emperor Emhyr var Emreis and Letho know the plan to destabilize the Northern Kingdoms, murdering two of the Northern kings.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Edit

Vattier has a card of his image that is part of the Nilfgaardian Empire deck.

Two Orrnate Swords of his can be found during the quest "A Dangerous Game." When Geralt reads the placard however, he will say it is a dagger and that there is only one.

Trivia Edit

  • Rideaux in French means "curtains".
