Known Information

In the spring of 1298 Elua society agreed that the romance of the season was the marriage of Absalon L'Envers, the widowed marquis d'Auxerre, and Azalaïs de Mereliot, a fresh-marqued young Alyssum courtesan whom he carried away from the heights of Mont Nuit and installed as his second marquise. Despite the difference in their ages the couple were very much in love and thoroughly charmed by one another, and a year later they were blessed with their only child, a daughter they named Grace.

It was observed amongst the nobility of Namarre, who knew them the best, that over time their passion waned as passion is so wont to do, and their union turned companionate. As Absalon aged and became subject to ill health, Azalaïs acted more and more as his helpmeet and his ambassador to his people, the angel in his household who saw his every wish fulfilled.

During their marriage they wintered three times in Eisande; now, widowed early in 1312, the dowager marquise d'Auxerre travels again to the province of her birth to visit family and to enjoy a little sunshine in this dark hour of her life.




soleil Soleil L'Envers nó Coquelicot : One of Azalaïs's most beautiful relations by marriage, and a better lutenist than she gives herself credit for. Though her confidence in herself and her own opinions can be a little abrasive sometimes. She has made a match lately with a Trevalion vicomte; Azalaïs is delighted that they seem to have a real chance of happiness together, and delighted too that it's distracting Soleil's attention away from her.
aurelie Aurelie Basilisque nó L'Envers : Is it just something that happens to L'Envers lords? They avail themselves in Namarrese fashion of every other nocturnal pleasure; then, at a certain age, they fall hard for the unsimple sweetness of an Alyssum flower… During the course of a long winter under the same roof in Marsilikos, Azalaïs did what she could to support this little sister of her own canon through the late stages of pregnancy whilst obeying her husband the marquis's commandment: never discuss politics with — better yet, never be alone in a room with — the vicomte de Tonnerre's pawn.
