Videmont, son of Baldwin, was the late 12th century King of Aedirn.

One of his daughters, Agnes of Aedirn, eloped with and married Esteril Thyssen. Though he originally opposed the union, Videmont grew to love their offspring all the way down to his great-grandson, Esterad Thyssen.

Biography

Reign and fatherhood

Videmont had several daughters,[2] Princess Agnes of Aedirn among them, and sons who would continue the ruling line.[1] At least once, the King used a hot iron to punish his daughters.[2]

End of game canon content.

As a young lady, his daughter Agnes met Count Esteril Thyssen at Ard Carraigh. Although the two soon fell in love, Videmont wanted none of it. He rejected the young Thyssen as unsuitable and shrug off mentions of the Count's close ties to the royal House of Troyden. Otherwise, Videmont liked to host the young man in Vengerberg, pleased with Esteril's friendship with his sons. The sons, however, secretly supported the love between Agnes and Esteril. The two fled one night, causing the King to fly into a rage.

A year on, King Benda of Kaedwen announced Videmont that he was now a grandfather. The King felt slighted and sulked for a time. After Esteril ascended as the King of Kovir and Poviss, elevating him to a "more fitting rank", Videmont grew close with the grandchildren. He, later, doted on his great-grandson Esterad Thyssen too.[1]
