Josiane Rittevon was a princess of the the Copper Isles and close relative to King Oron. She came to the Tortallan royal court while Prince Jonathan was in the desert. Queen Lianne, a childhood friend of her mother's, encouraged Jonathan to court Josiane. Their relationship was brief and not elaborated upon; Jonathan ended it when he realized Josiane was a cruel person. He had only agreed to the relationship in the first place because he had been angry with Alanna and wanted to forget her with a "real" female.

Josiane had wanted to marry Jonathan and after his refusal Josiane wanted revenge.[1] She became attached to Delia of Eldorne, and through her to Roger of Conté. During the Coronation Day Battle she attacked Alanna with an axe and successfully killed Faithful and Master Si-cham, and was then killed by Alanna.

She appeared both in The Woman Who Rides Like a Man and in Lioness Rampant, although she played a greater role in the second book and also died during the course of that novel. She was also mentioned casually by Joren of Stone Mountain in First Test; he postulated that the Immortals War was caused by bad blood between Tortall and the Copper Isles, attributable to Alanna's killing of a Rittevon princess. Aly mentioned her twice during Trickster's Choice and Trickster's Queen, once as King Oron's niece and once as his daughter.
