Lord Dewin of Queensgrace was a Tortallan nobleman who lived in the 3rd century HE. He held the title of count and was married to Lady Aeldra, a kinswoman of Sabine of Macayhill. He was executed for high treason in 249 HE. 

Biography

Early life

As the heir to the fief of Queensgrace, Dewin probably went through page and squire training in order to become a knight, as is customary for heirs of fiefdoms. He was raised in a very wealthy household, with many servants and slaves at his beck and call. It is unknown when he inherited Queensgrace, or when he married Lady Aeldra. As Count of Queensgrace, Dewin entertained very important nobles and royals, such as Baird of Conté, King Roger's younger brother.

Conspiracy of 249

Dewin was part of a conspiracy set about in 249 HE to overthrow Roger III of Conté and place Prince Baird on the throne instead. It started with the kidnapping and enslavement of the King's only son and heir, Prince Gareth. They kept the young prince hidden in the castle at Queensgrace before they realized that the Provost's Guard had sniffed him out with the help of Achoo the scent hound.

When they hosted their cousin, Sabine of Macayhill and other Provosts, they realized that the Guard was after them. They then moved Prince Gareth very quickly out of the castle to get him to Scanra.

Once caught, he and his wife were executed by the Crown for their treasonous acts, along with Prince Baird, and, very uncharacteristically, Matthias Tunstall. Their lands were stripped from the family, and renamed Princehold. The old lands were bequeathed to Sabine of Macayhill to repay her for helping to find Prince Gareth. There is however, still a village called Queensgrace by 460 HE, thus it was probably only the fiefdom that was renamed.

Personality and traits

He shared the same arrogance in his bloodline that many other nobles of the conspiracy also had in possession. He was peeved with Rebakah Cooper when seemingly she couldn't remember the proper address for a Count and a prince.

Fay mentioned that he was so uppity that he wouldn't do anything that was not in the Tortallan Books of Nobility. He also let her and Iris get away with things because of Fay's Sight.[1]

Appearances

Count Dewin only appears in Mastiff.

  2. It is unknown what happened to their children due to their parents' treachery. Since they were away when it occurred, it is likely they were not executed, but the family was stripped of its lands so the sons would inherit nothing.
