Queen Glarial was a legendary elven Queen during the Fourth Age who was noted for her beauty. She was married to the powerful king Baxtorian until her death. She has a daughter named Eirlys and a grandson named Islwyn.
Queen Glarial's tomb is located near Baxtorian Falls. It plays a significant part during Waterfall Quest. The inscription (after translation) reads: Here lies Glarial, wife of Baxtorian, true friend of nature in life and death. May she now rest knowing only visitors with peaceful intent can enter..
In Roving Elves, the spirit of Glarial is called upon to change the nature of the consecration seed.
Little is known about the disappearance of Glarial. In the Fourth Age, Glarial was married to King Baxtorian of Clan Cadarn, becoming acting regent of the Cadarn holdings east of Tirannwn (which covered part of the human kingdom of Kandarin) after Clan Iorwerth seized control of the city of Prifddinas. Baxtorian and his allies were forced to respond by bringing the bulk of their armies into Tirannwn. In his absence, the human population of the east (who were treated as serfs under elven rule) rebelled against Clan Cadarn. Simultaneously, Glarial was captured by the enemy, causing Baxtorian to fall into a deep depression. Upon his return, Baxtorian constructed a memorial to Glarial and sealed himself beneath a waterfall, believing her to be dead.
Glarial's tomb in the waterfall quest and Roving Elves is depicted with a Zarosian marker, the equilateral cross inscribed in a circle. This is odd as the elves are known followers of Seren, whose emblem is a rhombus.
