Witcher Wiki

Sancia of Sodden was Gutram's daughter from a second marriage, a princess of Sodden and the half-sister of Ekkehard of Sodden.[1] She married Medell of Temeria, and thus became the mother of Foltest and Adda and the grandmother of Adda the White.

She never accepted the incestuous relationship between her children; it would've been reason enough to curse their child to become a striga.

The queen, King Medell's wife and mother of their common children, Foltest and Adda, is mentioned in the short story The Witcher, in The Last Wish-collection. In all books (novels and short stories), neither her name nor her origins are ever mentioned.

In the Netflix series[]

Queen Sancia, portrayed by Russian actress Katia Bokor, also appears briefly in The Witcher TV-Series in Season 1/Episode 3: Betrayer Moon. Next to her, viewers can see young Foltest and his sister, Adda.
