Appearance and Character

Violante was small and renowned for her skills as a healer.[1]

History

After King Jaehaerys I Targaryen wed his sister, Alysanne, he sent seven preachers, including Septa Violante, to walk the realm with the mission of winning over the smallfolk on the issue of their incestious marriage. The royal couple thought it would be easier to spread the values of the Doctrine of Exceptionalism to their people with words rather than swords. Violante and the others traveled the realm alone, walking from village to village, praising Jaehaerys's wisdom and Alysanne's kindness.[1]
