Roedran Almaric do Arreloa a'Naloy is the king of Murandy.

Activities Edit

He hires Talmanes Delovinde and the Band of the Red Hand to stay inside the borders of Murandy. There they will sit and wait. Roedran will say that a foreign army is sitting on their border and use this to raise an army of his own and in the process unite the fractured country together.

He finally manages to unite the country against the Band. He then pays Talmanes in secret and allows the Band to withdraw.

Demandred? Edit

There were popular theories set forth that Roedran may have in fact been Demandred. In terms of evidence, Demandred mentioned that 'his rule was secure' and 'he was gathering his forces for war.' There was also the fact that Murandy (a country divided constantly) had united for the first time in years, theat Roedran owned two copies of a rare book on strategy, and also the proximity to many events 'in the south'. As Sammael mentioned, 'events in ths south' had Demandred's mark all over them. Murandy gave him access to Amadicia, Ghealdan, and Altara, while maintaining a foothold on Andor. He had his partners in crime in the White Tower, and amongst the Seanchan. The strongest argument against this was Murandy's minor role in world relations. But Demandred, by possibly choosing Murandy as his base of operations, could have allowed himself time and freedom to operate beneath notice.

A Memory of Light reveals that Roedran is not Demandred. Rand al'Thor does assume that he could be Demandred when they first see each other, but abandons this theory quickly.
