The Gray Maidens were the all-female, elite bodyguard for Queen Ileosa Arabasti of Korvosa. Since the queen's death, the group has been officially disbanded. A few cells, however, remain active in Varisia (outside of Korvosa) and in Cheliax.
The Gray Maidens were founded in 4708 AR by Queen Arabasti of Korvosa in the chaos following her ascension in order to secure a military force that was loyal only to her. Members of all the other military or militia units in and around Korvosa (including the Sable Company marines, the Order of the Nail, and the Korvosan Guard) were under the command of individuals whose loyalty to the new queen was questionable.
