Question on the Relationship between Cardiel and Richenda
« on: January 20, 2017, 09:02:48 am »
Katherine Lazo asks: “Several years ago, you sent me a family tree explaining how it was possible for Cardiel and Richenda to be related. This tree also showed that Richenda has two brothers—or at least had them at one time. One was named Murdo, and the other showed as simply Wm. (William?) Is this still the case, or have you reconsidered their names, and indeed their existence?”


KK replies: “The brothers do, indeed, exist, and Wm. is, indeed, William. I expect that we may meet him and his elder brother Murdo, in passing, in the later Childe books. They are several years younger than Richenda, and would have been squired to some noble lord’s house in their youth, but it’s likely that, if Morgan met them before meeting Richenda, they either didn’t make much of an impression or she wasn’t present. In any case, we know that he had not met her before that encounter in the carriage. (You see how skillfully I have left myself wiggle-room? The truth is, I don’t yet know how or whether they’ll fit into Morgan’s earlier story.)”
