Doniella Alievin was an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah who was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in the year 306 NE.


Her name indicates that she was from Cairhien.

Doniella held the position for twenty-six years until her resignation in 332 NE. She was Serenia Latar's successor and Aliane Senican's predecessor.[1]

Doniella was a quiet Amyrlin, not particularly strong, but not in the control of the Hall, either; her benign neglect did leave the Hall pretty much in control of the Tower.

Doniella quite voluntarily resigned as Amyrlin in order to spend more time on her loved studies. She spent the next thirty-one years studying happily, however she was not allowed to return to the Tower and was strongly discouraged from letting anyone know that she had been the Amyrlin Seat.

Doniella was also a Dreamer who made important studies on the Prophecies of the Dragon; in particular she made comments on the Termendal translation of the Karaethon Cycle, apparently so diffuse that they became "the subject of nearly as much discussion among scholars as the Prophecies themselves."

She is the only known Amyrlin Seat to have been a dreamer before Egwene al'Vere. [2] She died in 363 NE.

One of her most important notes read "Wait upon the Light"[2], quoted by Egwene during the Last Battle.[3]
