Maria[1] Louisa La Valette was King Foltest of Temeria's mistress. It was widely rumoured that both the baroness' children: son Boussy and daughter Anaïs, were not the old baron La Valette's offspring, but Foltest's.

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt[edit | edit source]

Louisa La Valette appears in The Witcher 3, having taken up residence in the Gildorf district of Novigrad. The emblem of the La Valette family still flies high outside her villa. She is accompanied by Morvran Voorhis.

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

Baroness Maria Louisa la Valette was the talk of Temeria in her time. This noblewoman had been King Foltest's mistress and even bore him two illegitimate children.
This caused quite the scandal and prompted several notable families to take up arms in revolt, only to be bloodily crushed by the king's forces, who took La Valette Castle during a hard-fought siege.
To the baroness' good fortune Geralt of Rivia was with King Foltest at the time and saved her son Aryan from the fate that otherwise would have been his for having participated in the revolt.
Louisa la Valette thus had every reason to think quite highly of the witcher and her esteem became quite apparent the next time they crossed paths.

In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings[edit | edit source]

In the Prologue, Geralt recalls Foltest's moves to capture the stronghold of the rebellious Baroness La Valette. She had one actual son with the "Old Baron", Aryan, who confronts the witcher as Geralt infiltrated the besieged castle.

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

I have chanced to visit the court of the La Valettes on several occasions in the past. Invariably, I was greeted and received in a manner befitting my fame and talent. Baroness Mary Louisa was a very comely lady, her beauty having fully blossomed, her hair dark, her lips sensuous. As with many women married to markedly older men, rumors about her were plentiful. Among them, one claiming that she had had a love affair with King Foltest himself, and that the monarch had fathered her younger children.
If Geralt manages to save her from the dungeons:
The witcher got a chance to behold the baroness in nearly all her beauty when he ripped her from the hands of a cruel torturer in the dungeon of her own abode. Mary Louisa La Valette eluded a terrible fate as they fled the underground prison, though they did so with the aid of an emissary of the Empire of Nilfgaard. The Nilfgaardian, however, was not helpful out of the kindness of his heart...
If Geralt does not manage to save her from the dungeons:
Mary Louisa La Valette managed to flee the cell in the dungeon of her own castle with the help of an emissary of the Empire of Nilfgaard. She thus eluded a terrible fate, but it can be said with some certainty that the Nilfgaardian was not helpful out of the kindness of his heart...

Notes[edit | edit source]

To see the baroness you will have to kill her son Aryan during the castle siege. If you spare his life, Geralt will never encounter her and her journal image will remain empty.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Her first name in the English version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is translated as "Mary". In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, she is also referred to as such during cutscenes. However, for the third installment's journal entry, this returned to the original Polish: "Maria".
