The gentleman is to stand before the Ruler of the North and South. I must confirm that he knows how to bow...That, sir, is how you might bow to a whore on a street corner, not to the emperor of Nilfgaard! Please, watch: Leg extended, hand flat, head down, chin to chest...

- Mererid teaching Geralt in Vizima how to bow

Mererid was Emperor Emhyr's chamberlain who, with a little help from Cledwyn the Barber, prepared Geralt of Rivia for an audience with the emperor of Nilfgaard in the Royal Palace in Vizima in the year 1272.

Also if Ciri became a witcher, he will lead Geralt once more to Emhyr, where he will lie to him about her death.
