The Lands of Yore: The Bortola Chronicles
Maria Estrella Delgado
Luca's mother (dead)
Maria worked as a maid in the palace of King Ferdinand III in Sacros from the age of 12. At 16, she became the king’s mistress. She soon after became pregnant, and gave birth to Luca de Mariposo when she was 17.
Less than two weeks after giving birth to Luca, she died of the plague. The king somehow believed that Luca had caused his mother’s death, and was enraged.
