Eldrene was the wife of King Aemon, the last king of Manetheren. During the Trolloc Wars, the small but strong army of Manetheren was considered a thorn in the Dark One's hand, so the entire forces of the Shadow were sent against the nation.
Although they were promised aid from Aridhol, no reinforcements arrived after three days, and on the tenth day, they knew no help was coming. From the city, Queen Eldrene organized her people to take the children and find refuge in the mountain keeps, though many went to join the army fighting for their home.
On the thirteenth day of fighting, the army of Manetheren was gone. Eldrene felt her husband die, and driven by grief, she reached out and hurled the One Power at the Trolloc army, washing a hurricane of fire across the land, and the Dark One's host was caught by the flames, even though they tried to flee. Yet she drew more of the One Power than any woman could ever hope to wield, and she was burnt right through, destroying the city.
After leaving the Two Rivers, Moiraine Damodred relates the tragedy of Eldrene, Aemon, and Manetheren to Rand al'Thor, Mat Cauthon, Perrin Aybara and Egwene al'Vere along the road to Whitebridge, after the youths sing a song which recalls Manetheren.
