About Lady Aleena

King Gromden

King Gromden of Human Xanth is a man from Xanth. His talent is divining the origin and history of any object held. He was first introduced in Crewel Lye: A Caustic Yarn.

Gromden was delivered in 591. He was the husband of a curse fiend, lover of Metria, and father of Threnody. He died in 677. He was 86 years old.

Gromden was the tenth King of Human Xanth. He is the father of Threnody from a brief liaison with Metria.

Novels: Crewel Lye: A Caustic Yarn, Question Quest, Roc and a Hard Place

A Bold Title means he was a major character. A Small Title means he was only mentioned.

Character notes


Human men and women will not have a species in their entries. Also, if the surname of the character is the character's species, it was dropped.

If the character is a child, it will be in the description. The child will more than likely be an adult by this time in the Xanth series.

Many species are single gender, so their entries will not mention it. The species are Fury, Muse, basilisk, cenmaid, cenmare, cockatrice, dryad, maenad, sand witch, sandman, and woodwife. Harpies and nymphs are usually female, and fauns are usually male; but there have been a few exceptions that are noted.

In some instances, I have made educated guesses on gender, species, and some birth years.
