Carewin Damodred was a former ruler of Cairhien.
She was Moiraine Damodred's great-grandmother. She ruled for more than fifty years. Her reign was regarded a success by the White Tower because Cairhien prospered under her rule and had few wars. She has a reputation as having been a fearsome ruler, her name still being used to scare children in Cairhien. Moiraine says that nobody ruled Cairhien for long without being capable of stooping to assassinations, kidnapping and worse.
