Alsalam Saeed Almadar was the king of Arad Doman.
He was an older man with long gray hair which fell to his shoulders. He had a large beak of a nose, kindly eyes, and coppery skin.
Alsalam was considered a good ruler for around twenty years, which made his sudden shift toward chaotic orders very suspicious. These more recent orders, supposedly issued by King Alsalam, were, in actuality, coming from Graendal. The Council of Merchants claimed the Domani King and the royal family were "in hiding" for their own protection. However, Graendal the Forsaken had taken them and used Compulsion to convince those on the council otherwise.
While members of the royal family were seen under Graendal's thrall, including Alsalam's sister, eldest daughter, his brother, Ramsid, and his sister-in-law, Ramsid's wife, who were on display as acrobats under Graendal's Compulsion, the King himself was not exquisite enough for keeping as a pet according to Graendal's standards, shrouding the fact that she even had him captured. It was assumed that he died at Natrin's Barrow when Rand al'Thor used balefire on the palace.
However, Alsalam was discovered alive and well by Cadsuane Melaidhrin along the Caralain Grass. He had been removed from Arad Doman shortly after the start of the civil war by Aes Sedai, and they were taking him back to the White Tower for his own protection. Cadsuane, sent by Rand discovered Alsalam and his escort and brought them to the Stone of Tear, where he was reunited with Rodel Ituralde.
