Appearance(s)

Zuleyka was a high-born lady from Talgar, presumably relative to Bernika. After the Secession of Poviss and the following events which led to the collapse of the Kingdom, when many exiles loyal to the House of Thyssen took refuge in Talgar, she met her future spouse - Esterad Thyssen. After the bloody Night of Knives and Torches which reintroduced Esterad into the throne, she became Queen by his side.

She was the mother of Gaudemunda, Heloiza and Tankred, and grandmother to Guiscard Vermuellen. She asked for magical assistance from Sheala de Tancarville of the Lodge of Sorceresses in getting her son away evil influences of the "bad crowd" he had fallen in with, most notably the baron Surcratasse, Lady de Lisemore and some Redanian ambassadors.

Queen Zulika is mentioned briefly by Triss as she informs Geralt about Síle de Tansarville after the duo meet the sorceress on the docks in Flotsam harbor. Triss explains that Síle is advisor to the queen of Kovir.
