Defender of the Realm is a title of the Queen of Andor.

Andoran history may bear some light on how the title came to be part of the royal styling. In FY 1063, Queen Maragaine personally led her army into battle against four rival kings who sought to invade Andor. This type of heroics could have been the foundation of the title.

Currently, Elayne Trakand holds the title. Her mother, Morgase Trakand, held the title when she was queen.
