Lady Roxanne of Meron (pronounced ROCK-sann of MEHR-on/ HAHR-eez), born Roxanne of Haryse, is the sister of Nealan of Queenscove's mother, Wilina of Queenscove[1], and Glaisdan of Haryse[2] and the wife of Lord Martin of Meron. Her nephew through her younger sister is Nealan of Queenscove and Geoffrey of Meron is her stepson.

She has only been mentioned in passing once in Alanna: The First Adventure. However, more information about Lady Roxanne was revealed in April of 2009 by Tammy on the internet.

Biography

Lady Roxanne spent some time at the royal palace in Corus when Alanna of Trebond was still a page. At that time Gary of Naxen was involved in a bet. He had to kiss Lady Roxanne, who wasn't considered very pretty, because her features were rather plain and bony. Gary won ten nobles for kissing Roxanne.[3]

As the oldest daughter she had a substantial dowry and married Lord Martin in 441 HE. Together they have five children, two sons and three daughters.[4]
