Appearance(s)

Eist Tuirseach was a jarl of Skellige during reign of his brother, King Bran. Uncle of Crach an Craite. He became the king of Cintra via his impromptu marriage to Queen Calanthe. Some time after, he also gained the crown of Skellige. He ruled together until 1263, but there were no children from that union. He was killed at the Battle of Marnadal during the Nilfgaardian invasion of Cintra. He is described as being a sinewy warrior with a dark face, an aquiline nose and very white teeth.

In the Movie and TV series[edit | edit source]

Unlike the books, in The Hexer TV series, Eist died soon after his marriage to Calanthe, before the Nilfgaard invasion.

He was played by actor Jerzy Piwowarczyk in the movie and TV series.
