Historian's Notes

This is a collection of short biographies of some of the most notable figures in the history of the Kingdom of Wesnoth, and the Irdyan world, as a whole. The article is arranged by historical epoch, and the biographies within each epoch are listed in alphabetical order, using the name by which the person was most commonly referred to in the historical records. Dates are consistent with the system of chronology used in the Wesnoth History section. The appearance of a triple question mark (???) indicates that the information needs to be verified.

See also Character's stories, for brief descriptions of a wider range of the inhabitants of Wesnoth and the rest of Irdya.

"Identity curses men from birth, as does fate. Konrad, forgive me for the burdens which I shoulder you with. I pray that you will wear them as a badge on your heart, not a stone around your neck." - Delfador, at the coronation of Li'sar & Konrad

Had Parandra of Elvendom not been as prudent and as benevolent, the tale of the boy who became Konrad, King of Wesnoth would never have been sung in the minstrel's tunes. Konrad never knew his real parents; he was found by Elves, as an infant, abandoned in a copse a few strides off an Elvish trader's path. Parandra the wise, knowing the baby had been there for some time, (as evidenced by certain smells emanating from the child's swaddling clothes) set aside all hope of reuniting him with his unknown parents. She picked up the orphaned child and took him as her own.

Delfador arrived sometime thereafter, bearing the grim evidence of his failed rescue; the lifeless body of the murdered infant-Prince Konrad. Parandra and Delfador discussed the situation at length, including the co-incidental discovery of the other, nameless child. Both of them shared their worries that this plan, this trick, wouldn't work. However, staring down at the foundling in his new crib, touched by his liveliness and cheer, they agreed to give him and the people of Wesnoth, a chance.

That night, while the corpse of one child was laid to rest in the green woods, another child, the boy abandoned & left for dead, was given a new destiny as the fugitive Konrad, Prince & Heir to the throne of Wesnoth.

Delfador raised Konrad as his son, yet never pretended to be his father. Konrad grew up knowing only the life that Delfador created for him. Delfador trained him as a warrior and leader. Each new lesson gave way to another for the precocious student.

During his seventeenth year with Delfador, Konrad and his mentor fled the land of the elves during an attack led by Asheviere.

Konrad's life during these times is chronicled in the Heir to the Throne campaign.
