Nariene was a historical Queen of Altara.

In the Mol Hara Square in Ebou Dar, a statue of Queen Nariene stands above a fountain with one breast bared and one hand uplifted.

Some believe that her hand points to the ocean and its bounty or in warning of dangers while others say her successor wanted to show she was only moderately honest, because only one breast is bared.

(Reference: Winter's Heart, Chapter 17)


"Nariene had been noted for her honesty, but not enough to have been depicted completely bare-chested." (Mat; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 39)
