Cast and characters[]

  • Narrated by Rupert Degas




Narrator: A thousand years after the breaking, battles still raged against the forces of the Dark One. With the towers of Manetheren to their backs, King Aemon and his army defended their people. Battling through unrelenting days and nights, they held their city against trollocs, darkfriends, and dreadlords, until they could no longer hold the river from crossing. Behind the honor of the Red Eagle banner, retreat found no place amongst them.
King Aemon: Carai an Caldazar. Carai an Ellisande. Al Ellisande.
(Translation: For the honor of the Red Eagle. For the Honor of the Rose of the Sun. The Rose of the Sun.)
Narrator: And the sword that could not be broken was shattered. From behind the walls of the emptied city, Queen Eldrene sank with King Aemon's death. And so her heart and kingdom found their end. And today in the Two Rivers, where Manetheren once stood, the Wheel continues to turn.


  • On November 15, 2021, this episode was shown with the theatrical screening of the first two episodes of The Wheel of Time.
