Added some bits about her relevance to CotCT, as this is the major storyarc in which Ileosa plays a role. Flagged as spoiler accordingly.

Red Mantis role

Theriocephalus, in this edit you removed this phrase:

After murdering her husband with the aid of the Red Mantis assassins

In the edit summary, you noted that:

The source material explicitly contradicts the claim that Ileosa murdered her husband with the aid of the Red Mantis; it instead says she contacted them and they refused, as this page states later on.

Further on the page, I see Ileosa's Red Mantis contacts aided her attempt to murder her husband by providing the poison:

Following the seduction, Ileosa procured a special poison from her Red Mantis contacts who, although unwilling to actually murder a monarch themselves, were happy to help someone else to do it.

The source text confirms that the poison was provided by Red Mantis assassins, and that the poison is a signature method of their work:

To this end, she gave Venster a specialized poison, a venom secured from her Red Mantis contacts (while they do not commit regicide, they have no compunction about supplying those who would). The poison closely mimicked the effects of a rapid form of leprosy, yet one that, being poison, resisted attempts to cure it as if it were a disease—one of many ingenious methods of murder developed by the Red Mantis.

I've restored the removed phrase and revised it to be more specific. Please let me know if you still disagree. -Oznogon (talk) 18:25, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
