Roald I of Conté, called "the Peace-Keeper," was King of Tortall, along with his queen, Lianne of Naxen, in the 430's HE. He has the magical gift, coloured blue, of the Contés. Roger of Conté is his brother and Jonathan IV of Conté his son and successor as king.
Roald of Conté was born in 385 HE. He married Lianne when he was 26 years old and their only child Jonathan was born five years later.
By the time Alanna of Trebond arrived at the royal palace to train as page Roald was already King. The Tusaine War took place under his reign as did Duke Roger's first regicide attempts. The revelation that a girl had undergone her training for knighthood disguised as a boy caused much mayhem at the court and Roald introduced the Page Examinations a year later in early 439 HE. In the following March his wife died. Roald committed suicide at the age of 54 three weeks later.
Personality and traits
Roald isn't called "the Peace-Keeper" without reason. He is very intent on keeping the peace with his neighbouring countries and in the war with Tusaine even gave his soldiers the order not to cross the Drell River.
He is also very anxious for his family, worrying not only for his son when he falls fatally ill of the Sweating Sickness but also for his wife, who has a very faible health. When she dies in 439 HE he can't deal with it and thus commits suicide.
His son and heir is Jonathan of Conté, the current king. Roger of Conté is his nephew by an unknown sibling, Gary of Naxen is his nephew by marriage, and Roald, Kalasin, Liam, Lianne, Jasson, and Vania are his grandchildren through Jonathan, and Thayet jian Wilima. He also has two great-grandchildrren: Lianokami, through Roald and the Yamani princess Shinkokami, and Binur Iliniat, through Kalasin, and Kaddar Iliniat. Roald never got to know his son's offspring, because he died before Jon even knew his future wife Thayet jian Wilima.
