Queen Eredhela was a legendary elven Usprian leader who, according to medieval histories, poetry and romances, led the defence of the Uspria against the Kormistazic, Krösnauen and Maltervenian Empires between the 2nd and 5th centuries. Believed to have lived for over six hundred years and having been born somewhere in the 1st century BCE, many stories are of literary invention and folklore, though pieces written in the 6th and 7th centuries of her earlier life are credible. Modern historians are not decided on whether she is unhistorical.
