...What happened to her? --Kakwakas 12:24, 29 Nov 2005 (EST)
Blizzard never addresses it. We've got only fan speculation on that. She may have been married off to some lord, or she may be dead. (NORMAL dead, not undead)- Ragestorm
- Most likely dead, if you go with the cliches (I hate that word, how is it spelled correctly again?). A heroes family-members almost always die tragically: By accident, getting murdered, or by natural cause but with a tragic revelation on the deathbed if it suits the further plot, By illness if they don't suit it anymore. So I beleive we can say Calia died of illness. Oh, and she has not been retconned from the story, as she is mentioned in -Alliance Player's Guide- page 139--Maibe 07:50, 30 October 2006 (EST)
- I'm assuming something happened to her during her betrothment to Deathwing, aka Lord Prestor. Perhaps when he was discovered to be a dragon in disguise he killed her or something. You know how dragons like eating virgin sacrifices and what not. hehe ;) --Anticrash 22:11, 11 Dec 2005 (EST)
Lol,Blizz needs to bring her back...As the leader of the Argent dawn. it would provide some intresting conflict.
Dont expect Blizzard to bring her back as leader of the Argent Dawn, as she most likely lived during at least some of the second war (havent read DotD) she probably got a searing hate for the orcs as all other Lordaeronians (or whatever its called) and as the Argent Dawn remains indepent between the Horde and Alliance she coud not lead it. -Rovdyr
Sadly, it seems Blizzard forgot about her. A quote I saw once on the WoW message board was "Arthas has a sister?" which was attributed to Chris Metzen. I can't confirm if this was a joke or a real comment ;). It's kind of ironic that after her introduction in Day of the Dragon, her little brother pretty much stole the spotlight in the series.

The 'girl' from Horde's players Guide Edit
I doubt the mentioned girl is Calia...From the other sourcebooks we know DotD was set in year 8, when Calia was some years from her 15th birthday (15, as we know, is the age human children reach adulthood). The 3rd war started a good 13 years later, so I doubt she would still be called -girl- the time that story is set.--Maibe 11:33, 25 December 2006 (EST)
I have the book, though I haven't read that story. I'll have to see if it calls the "princess" a girl. If it calls her a girl or says that princess is young, I would have to agree with you.Baggins 11:39, 25 December 2006 (EST)
- Just checked before typing. It clearly says -girl-. So, princess could also be a pet-name...perhabs the girl is Trevor's girlfriend or daughter...--Maibe 11:43, 25 December 2006 (EST)
Could be, or she's a princess of one of the other six human kingdoms. In anycase I don't think the info belongs here. Maybe put it under an article on Trevor for now?Baggins 11:46, 25 December 2006 (EST)
- Might be an good idea.--Maibe 16:15, 25 December 2006 (EST)
You up for the task? Kind of busy working on other articles right now. BTW, trevor's story is interesting as it goes into idea of light vs. shadow.Baggins 16:16, 25 December 2006 (EST)
- I shall read the whole story again first. then I shall try. Never wrote a complete entry before...--Maibe 16:30, 25 December 2006 (EST)
I think we should not read too much into the word girl, if the woman is the princess and recognizes the priest -which she did- we might argue that Trevor was a known figure at the Menethil court and thus quite old. Kind of like an old man calling his grandchildren boy and girl. --Sander 12:43, 27 December 2006 (CET)
- But if we take that the side-stories so far always made a difference between girl and woman...It's not Trevor who calls her -girl- it's the story.--Maibe 07:01, 27 December 2006 (EST)
One of the things I find curious about the short story in HPG is that Trevor mentions that he "learned to wield the spears of the Light in the First War" (quoted almost literally). Not really useful info about the identity of the "princess", but it means he was maybe a Cleric of Northshire when alive, and fled to Lordaeron with Lothar, thus meeting the court of Lordaeron and the Menethil family. Pure speculation though, and it would fit better on an article about Trevor than about Calia Menethil.--Morgaur 17:50, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Retaking Lordaeron Edit
What would REALLY be great is if the Scarlet Crusade finds Calia. There could be a power struggle that allows the uncorrupted crusaders to get back on top. The Crusade would then be able to unite the remaining humans of Lordaeron (Scarlet Crusade, Alliance and Argent Dawn). Mannerheim
- Another Battleground? Humans vs. Forsaken based conflict. Btw. Scarlet Crusade won't unite with Argent Dawn due to the former being led by Balnazzar and the latter being the uncorrupted part of the former who left it (there's something about it written in relation to the Corrupted Ashbringer). 08:44, 27 January 2007 (EST)
- Right now, the Scarlet Crusade actually has already engaged in diplomatic talks with the Argent Dawn to do just that. Don't think that every Crusader is corrupted. Commander Marjhan looks fairly normal to me. I also highly doubt that the Crusaders actually are aware of Dathrohan being Balnazzar - else it would have become public knowledge long ago. Tulon 20:30 07 April 2007
call me crazy but isnt it possible that she died & rose into undeath it sounds like something Arthas would do plus it could make an interesting plot twist if she then joined the Forsaken perhaps being trained as Sylvanas' heir?
Assuming that undead die of illness or old age... --Mannerheim 23:43, 7 April 2007 (EDT)
I think it would be cool if she had a son who rose to reclame Lordaeron from the forsakan User:IloveWhitemane
An Idea for a quest. Edit
This probaly wont happen since it involves killing Silvanas. In Triful Glades you find a lone human woman (Wearing rags or something a peasent would have). She offers you a favor to go to the capital city ruins. In order to assassinate the Banshee Empress (Silvanas is technically an empress since she conquored the town from Bal) Bring her to the city and in a boss fight or using a sniper rifle KILL THE BANSHEE. --The last Alterac 09:02, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
King Terenace was not an emperor and he ruled alot more of Lordaeron than Sylvanas gadget 20:43, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
- Empress by conquest, not empress by ruleing a lot.-- 20:46, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Queen of Stormwind Rumor Edit
I have recently read a rumor about her having married Varian Wrynn prior to the third war. It is an interesting theory (in my opinion) supported by several facts:
- 1.- Nothing is known about Varian's wife identity.
- 2.- Nothing is known about what has Calia been doing since the story told in DotD.
- 3.- His father Terenas wanted her to marry with an important Alliance governor. Since a wedding between Arthas and Jaina Proudmoore was likely to be already planned, Daval Prestor dissappeared, Gilneas and Stromgarde left the Alliance after the Second War, and Dalaran was ruled by a council of mages, the only possibility left was the king of Stormwind.
- 4.- She already knew Varian from the time he spent living in the court of Lordaeron.
- 5.- She is older than Varian, however that wouldn't matter for an arranged marriage.
One of the most interesting things about this theory is that, if true, would make Anduin Wrynn the rightful heir of both the kingdoms of Stormwind AND Lordaeron. I would like to know your opinion about this, if you think it can be possible and if it's interesting enough to include it as part of the main article.--Morgaur 16:29, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Well, I am Gooing Right this instant to the Alterac Mountains, I search each and every detail at the Alterac Kingdom for any Rumors of Calia, Or any Signs, I will take my Undead Rogue on the Horde (I am ally, got a 15 rogue to just be in Undercity) and will Search Undercity, Do you know where did Trevor Free her from? we must search there as soon as possible! For Cenarius! 19:02, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I doubt you'll achieve anything by doing that, but don't let me stop you. If any reference to Calia Menethil was made in World of Warcraft, chances are that by now it would have been included in the article. Also, the location you refer to - a prison block - is simply not in WoW. ---- Vorbis Talk Contribs 08:51, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
- She'd actualy be about the same age or younger than Varian (quite a bit of time passed between Tod and Dotd), but regardless none of those points justify speculation in the article imo. A lack of evidence contradicting a theory is not the same as evidence supporting it. 1 2 and 5 are that exactly. 4 is true but is far too...general, not a strong point. And 3 is a bit inaccurate, Terenas wanted her to marry a alliance govener, in this case Prestor, because Prestor planted that idea in his head. Even if Terenas felt that way w/o Deathwing theres other possibilities, such as nobles. I personnely think it would be great. Give the humans an incentive to retake the plaguelands, give Varian more power and authority in the story, tie up a loose end, etc...i could go on. But it still lacks any sort of support. Not to meantion it would be difficult to explain how we would just be finding this out. It's technicaly possible, but just not plausible. 09:12, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Age Confirmation Edit
Please provide a confirmation of age for Calia. I'd like to know where you got the information that she's at least 10 years older than Arthas, and how and where you found that she was some years off from her 15th birthday during Day of the Dragon? - Psypho 06:46, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
She is described as being a year or two away from being at a proper age for marriage in DotD. Arthas at the time is a "barely more than a toddler. Exact numbers are never used but "about ten years" is substaniated estimate. Her age is described on pages 24, 224, and 231 of Dotd.23:02, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
I do NOT know if we are allowed to post about this yet, but according to Rise of the Lich King, its only 2 years difference, Calia was to marry at age of 17 and at that time, Arthas was 14, so it comes to a 2 year age difference. User:Llanerian 21:43, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
