Ursula Upcliff was a member of House Upcliff and reputed sorceress who lived during the Andal Invasion. She called herself bride of the Merling King.


Ursula Upcliff joined the alliance of First Men houses, petty kings and clans summoned by Robar II Royce to fight against the Andals. According to tradition, Robar II won her alliance due to his "honeyed tongue."

Ursula participated in the Battle of Seven Stars, riding a bloodred horse. She faced Torgold Tollett and tried to curse him. However, according to singers, Torgold leapt upon Ursula's horse, grasped her face and tore her head from her shoulders as she screamed for succor.[1]

Behind the Scenes

Ursula Upcliff is probably a nod to Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid.
