Auberon Muircetach, King of the Alders, was the king of the Aen Elle elves, an Aen Saevherne, and ruler of Tir ná Lia. He was determined to "take back" what had been stolen from the Aen Elle by Cregennan when he took Lara Dorren, Auberon's daughter. To do this, he had Ciri, a descendant of the two lovers, brought to him and groomed to produce an heir. He was not brutal, but nor would he be dissuaded from his goal.

He died before he was able to impregnate Ciri; killed, possibly unwittingly, though likely not, from an overdose of an aphrodisiac or performance enhancer at the age of over 650 years supplied by Eredin Bréacc Glas, who viewed himself as a more suitable ruler.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
