Queen Milena ruled the whole of Tamarang with an unknown king, who fathered her daughter, Princess Violet. It is stated by Kahlan that she attacked the King of Tramontana (while she was still princess) all because she wanted a pink sapphire the size of a pumpkin seed. She is portrayed as mean and malevolent.She shows loyalty to Darken Rahl, and Rahl had to give in to her demands because he wanted the third Box of Orden, which was in the treasure room. Zedd entered the castle posing as a puppeteer for Violet. The queen was unsuspecting of this. Lord Rahl killed her in the end and told her that her daughter would be raised as a slave in Athanasia.
