A-Z blogging challenge: Q

Q is for Queens. The Fortuna throne is a matriarchial monarchy. The throne passes from mother to eldest daughter. The line of Fortuna queens hasn't been broken, ever. Famke's lineage is pretty awesome, here take a look at a small piece of it...
The names with the boxes around them are people who are dead, and Andromeda is the current queen. I could tell you stories about all of these people, but I'll stick with just the basics. Ceraphyna reigned for several years before giving birth to her twins Erick and Ellia. Her other three children soon followed. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at an old age. Her only living sibling Caysera lives in the south of the valley with their sister Calleigh's children.

Ellia took up the throne, married soon after, and quickly became pregnant. But then Erick was killed in battle and Roan along with him. Ellia went into labor but both mother and child perished. Thus the crown passed to Andromeda. Her sister Sirra married Garrett Ironstar and moved to his Keep, while Mikal has become a Kor (a general) under Kieran Matthias (the High Warlord).

The Fortuna queens are strong women. I love them and I hope you do too...
