Curse of the Crimson Throne
Dr. Reiner Davaulus
The Queen's expert physician
The good Doctor escaped Korvosa and the Queen has offered a reward if he is brought to trial. She claims to be a victim just as much as the rest of the city. All of Korvosa was duped in a grand scheme perpetrated by an evil cult. All of the evidence you found pointed directly at Doctor Davaulus, and the Queen benevolently rewarded you for your heroic efforts. Well she wasn’t able to be there personally but the late Commandant Marcus Thalassinus Endrin presented you with her gifts.
The upper and middle classes buy into this account, but the lower classes, those who suffered the most under the plague, spit at the mention of the Queen (although they look around for Grey Maidens and sympathizers before they do so).
