King's Quest Omnipedia

Rosella is the daughter of King Graham and Queen Valanice of Daventry and twin sister of Prince Alexander.[1] She is the granddaughter of Prince Cedric and Coignice on her mother's side, and Sir Hereward on her father's. Rosella is the Princess of the Realm, and the heir to the throne of Daventry.[2][3] Her formal name and title is Princess Rosella of Daventry or Rosella of Daventry. Her name means "little rose".

Princess Rosella is the protagonist of King's Quest IV and, alongside Queen Valenice, one of the two protagonists of King's Quest VII.


Rosella and Alexander were born a year or two after the wedding of her parents. They were loved by their parents and taken care of by the maid Annabel. Soon after (some say six months later), Alexander was kidnapped by the shores of Lake Maylie during a picnic while everyone else was put under a sleep spell. Upon waking up, Valanice found the crib empty, but returned to the castle she searched the nursery and found it unattended (her maid was there) with Alexander's crib empty and Rosella crying uncontrollably. The castle was scoured high and low, and every inch of Daventry was searched, but there never was any sign of the little boy.

Rosella was left to grow up alone. It is said it put the kingdom into a state of depression they never truly recovered from.



Rosella was her father's darling and her mother's close companion during the years that her twin brother was missing (and presumed dead).[4] Her mother taught many things as shew grew up, and taught her jokes and riddles to teach their daughter to be ever hopeful.[5]

Annabel continued to take care of her like she was her own child. As Rosella grew, the princess went on picnics with the maid when she was little, and the maid dressed the cuts and scrapes she had gotten after a day's play. Annabel told her wonderful stories, and was always there when she awoke frightened by a dream in the middle of the night. Rosella once let Valanice's prize wolfhound out one night; and a few weeks later mongrel puppies were born. Valanice was rightly furious; however, Annabel protected the princess insisting that Rosella had been abed and not near the kennels at all.

As she was growing up, she enjoyed climbing trees and playing in the nearby woods. Her parents told her if she was ever in trouble to just whistle and they would come to her aid. She enjoyed these happy times of childhood.

As a young girl she spent much of her time in the castle playing football.[6] She once snuck outside the castle, into the woods, chasing after her golden football, which she had lost. It was her first adventure and after a series of predicaments she was able to find it and return to the castle.

As she grew into a young woman, Valanice taught Rosella both as a student, daughter, and the heir to the throne of Daventry. All Valanice knew and all she learned, she offered Rosella; as did her husband Graham. Histories, geography, folklore, common sense, and rules of thumb; swimming, running, riding, shooting and fighting; stories of honor, courage, valor, humor, and humility; tales of lovedeath and hard choices--all of these she devoured, as if hungry to learn enough for two. She also learned to climb trees and clean house, sing, play the flute, the lute, and all the keyboards, speak politely, listen quietly, and survive alone in the wilderness. All their love they gave to their princess.[7]

When she was seven she stayed with in the castle with Master Rokaill while her parents traveled to the Old Wood to meet the Fairies and find out how to end the endless winter, and bring about spring.KQKoS #? She saved the land from the marauding sloks and Wandering Weevils.KQSNW #?


Rosella was almost eighteen when the great Three-headed Dragon demanded her sacrifice against the total destruction of all Daventry and its people; and she was offered up as ransom for the kingdom. She returned the love her parents had given her by willingly going to meet the flaming doom.[8] She tried to be brave;[9] she learned well about hard choices and marched with sure, firm steps; her back straight and head held high, to the appointed place. Only one small, quiet tear glistened on her face as she kissed her parents farewell for what they all thought to be the final time.[10] Rosella and her father disappeared into the mountain, entering the dragon's lair.[11] Graham tied her to the stake, she was left awaiting death with her eyes open and dry.[12] Graham returned to his wife's side, both were were devastated with loss.[13] When the dragon came for her, they returned to the castle to await their bitter end. Meanwhile, Rosella struggled to free herself. Her muscles were strained against the ropes, the veins and tendons of her neck quite visible from the effort. She was screamed in terror, as would anyone faced with the sure knowledge of being scorched to death at any moment by the giant reptile.[14] While she was struggling, she was rescued by Alexander, a brother she had never known, who journeyed across land and sea to save her. Rosella had been gone but two or three hours before she returned to the castle gate's.


During the family reunion, she witnessed her father collapse from a heart attack. The royal physicians could do nothing for her father. In sadness she returned to the throne room, sitting on the throne to weep, when she spotted the magic mirror activate. She saw the image of the good fairy Genesta, who told her that in her land of Tamir was a fruit that could save her father, but that the princess would have to assist Genesta by finding her stolen talisman. Genesta gave her the choice to come to Tamir, and Rosella was transported there. She had to find the Magic Fruit to save King Graham, and had to retrieve Genesta's Talisman from the evil witch Lolotte. In spite of herself, Rosella felt a great sense of sweet revenge in killing Lolotte.[15]

While there, Lolotte's son, Edgar fell in love with her. Once Rosella got the talisman and the magical fruit, Genesta transformed Edgar into a handsome young man. He proposed to Rosella but she declined in order to return to Daventry and saved her father.

The Troubles

Nearly a year later, she visited the nearby kingdom of Lycathia. She had sent a letter back to her family, telling of her experiences there.[16] Shortly after returning to Castle Daventry, she, Valanice, and Alexander were minimized along with their castle by Mordack. They were rescued by Graham.[17]

Several months later, she was transported to Alexander's wedding to Cassima in the Land of the Green Isles; but Rosella was reluctant to marry herself.[18]

Later, while on a walk with her mother, Rosella jumped into a lake and was transported to another realm. Valanice followed her but they were separated. King Otar wanted to marry Rosella. The evil fairy sorceress Malicia was in the process of trying to destroy the land with a volcanic eruption. As Rosella was saving the land, she discovered that Malicia had captured the real King Otar and had transformed Edgar into the fake King Otar, the one wanting to marry Rosella. They also discovered that Edgar is the son of the king and queen of the fairies of Etheria. After reuniting with her mother, Rosella transformed Malicia into an infant with a Mysterious Device and accepted Edgar's request to court her.[19]

Following her adventure, she returned to Daventry, she and her mother told her father about her time in Etheria. She went back to living in Castle Daventry. She always planned to return and live in Daventry, no matter where her adventures may have lead.[20] Soon rumors of an impending marriage in the kingdom between Rosella and Edgar in the kingdom began spreading among the kingdom's populace.[21] Though long time family friend Derek Karlavaegen isn’t so sure of the wedding happening just yet as he knows Rosella to be a brash and independent sort, unlikely to jump into marriage, especially since she knew so little about Edgar at the time.

During the cataclysm, Rosella suffered the same fate as the rest Daventry's mortal inhabitants.[22][23] Following Connor's defeat of Lucreto, and the reforging of the Mask of Eternity, Rosella like all mortals in Daventry were returned to themselves.

Daventry Restored

Rosella has become very concerned about her parents and their sudden dependence on the 'healer' Rasputris, who had come to daventry and imbedded himself into the household of her eldery parents. Rasputris had made himself so important in the Daventry court that his powerful influence was now corrupting Daventry -- from the inside!

Rosella had become very concerned about her parents and their sudden dependence on this itinerant drifter and she tried to evict him from the kingdom, but to no avail. It’s obvious that they are both heavily influenced by Rasputris and, indeed, were overwhelmed by him. What has he done to them?

Rosella then enlists the aid of her brother, Alexander – now the King of the Land of the Green Isles – and Connor, the new Marquis of Daventry, to help ‘rescue’ King Graham and Queen Valanice from Rasputris’s evil clutches. But during their endeavors, they find that Rasputris is more than he seems – a dirty, unkempt wanderer with bright, hypnotic eyes. In reality he was an accomplice of Lucreto. Unfortunately, he had been accidentally blasted out of the Realm of the Sun when the Mask of Eternity was restored and is now in the process of taking over Daventry ‘from the inside’ in retaliation for Connor having defeated Lucreto and his evil plans. It will not be an easy task to root this powerful character out from Daventry!

Following their adventure, rumors abound that Rosella and Connor became interested in each other during their adventure, and he came between her and Edgar. Rosella had developed an affection for Connor... and poor Edgar was jealous. A struggle commenced between Edgar and Connor for Rosella's hand.[24][25]

Queen Rosella?

It is forshadowed that she would someday become the Queen of Daventry. Many believe Edgar is to be her future King of Daventry.[26][27][28][29] ...or perhaps she ended up with Connor.[30][31] During these events William of Daventry would someday become her Seneschel (having been born into the position from his father Oswold and his ancestors).[32][33] Someday Graham would become a grandfather.[34] and Valanice would become a grandmother, and she would have several children herself[35]. ...or perhaps Graham and Valanice had many more fine children in their later years[36], and one of these as prosphesied, a prince would become the future heir and make the kingdom's future secure.[37]. Though these stories have yet to be told.

Personality and traits

Rosella is beautiful and delicate, yet strong and brave. She is also a clever girl. She is all these things and more. Rosella has a striking resemblance to her mother. Her eyes and mouth are like her mother's. Some say she was becoming more beautiful than her mother. When she wore her mother's dresses, and her hair was put up in a lady's style, she did look very much like Valanice.

Rosella is shown to be both brave and impulsive. When the three-headed dragon demanded her sacrifice, and by the advice of Gervain and Graham's decision (as the latest in the yearly sacrifices) she agreed to go, offering herself, hoping that it would help save the kingdom. She believes her selfless decision may have been what drew Alexander back to the kingdom in order to save it. She accepted Genesta's offer of help without question, and without telling anyone where she was going. Furthermore, later on, she dove into the enchanted pond, following the dragonette purely on a whim.

Rosella had never been the epitome of poise. Though ladylike, she occasionally pouted, where she stomped her foot, and tossed her hair.[38] Though most of the time she tried to stop herself, knowing she would be scolded for it by her mother, as it was not ladylike.[39] She was somewhat selfish and demanding. Even attempting to make demands of her father, when she could get away with it.[40] Rosella could be seen as somewhat vain, enamored in her own looks, and how she looked to others. She wanted everyone to look at her. If they turned away, though slightly annoyed, she figured her beauty was too much for them.[41] In town she at least understood that seeing royalty was more common place, and didn't expect an entourage. Of all Rosella's many virtues, patience was not the most prominent.[42]

Rosella believes in and practices charity and good deeds.[43] Rosella is aware of her attractiveness and takes pride in it. When she reached womanhood and began to fill out, and she liked to notice the reactions she received from men when they took notice of her figure.

She is somewhat private with her grief and cannot bear to witness sadness directly. She is one to look for a quiet place to grieve alone. Sometimes doubts and indecision crosses her mind momentarily, only to be replaced with courageous and determined attitude. She sometimes grumbles at adversity and hardship, but quickly remembers that her father, mother, and brother have done impossible things, and so can she, perhaps, even "show them up" (as her ego swells).

She is honest, most of the time. If her plans are found out she would not lie, she would admit to what she did but not always tell them why she did it. However, she would face punishments directly. While Rosella is not hot-headed, she is always quick to defend herself in any given situation. She has always been very independent and lives her life as she sees fit. At times, she does display some petty behavior, but she never strays away from her cheerful demeanor for long and is always ready to forgive. She could be pulled out of a glum mood, by her youthful curiosity of all the wonders of the universe waiting to be discovered. As is inevitable sometimes she feels anger and frustration, but the fury passes quickly. When her temper flashes it sears with intensity, then focuses into determination.

Rosella had a mocking scorn for the sciences (this was not uncommon for most of the people of Daventry). In her youth, Rosella developed a disdain for everyone. She was born a princess, and did nothing to earn that but being born. So she scorned those who had to earn their place in life because she was given hers.[44] However, as she grew older she grew out of that phase.

A romantic, like her parents to each other or her brother with Cassima, she fell in love with Edgar at first sight (or at least had a crush on him). She thought he was a handsom hunk, and when he asked her to marry him, she took some time to think about it, and she thought about it some more, although she was in a hurry save her father and had to leave him behind. She ultimately turned him down gently, thought of him as being very sweet, but needed to return home immedietly. But thought perhaps, they would meet again, someday.[45] She continued to hold him dear to her heart, until the day she met him again.[46] She experienced a reluctance to be rushed into marriage, perhaps hoping to see her "dearest Edgar" again. KQ7 opens with her protesting her mother's attempts to marry her off and ends by accepting Edgar's offer to court her, with no promises of an engagement.

She is independent woman, she enjoys her own freedom. She doesn't like being told to settle down, to put childish things away. She is not ready to be a bride, she wants to be her own woman. All that stuff forced her on makes her want to run and hide.[47]

Dashing young princes do cause her heart to go pitter-patter; however, while Rosella may be impetuous, she is no fool. She would marry no man before her time.[48] She realizes looks are not everything, and some of the most elegant princes are nasty or impolite. Those kind make her angry and fuming. She is also offended by poor music playing and acting of others.

Rosella was taught by Valanice, Graham, and tutored by Master Rokaill and later Farquhar. She learned everything from archery, art, history, science, geography, philosophy, meteorologynatural history and mathematics. She could play several instruments.[49] She also learned all she could from the books in the castle library.[50] She read the works of William Shakespeare, Rosella had taken to memorizing many of the Bard's better passages and could dramatically recite them by heart. She always played the heroine.[51] Master Rokaill had spent hours drilling her about meteorology and its effects on the land. Rosella found the lectures dry.[52] Rosella was not very skilled at mathematics and philosophy. She had not studied much of mathematics; rather, she spent most of her schooling learning the history of Daventry and other realms. She found schooling was important. it taught her how to deal with dragons and other creatures.[53]

Her father never allowed her to be involved with any sort of magic in her early years (though later under Farquhar she may have learned some of the basics of spell casting). However, she did display some proficiency with King Otar's Magic Wand of Transformation, transforming Otar into a scarab and back and changing Edgar back from his troll form although this was done through activating the wand properly rather than innate spell knowledge. Valanice insisted that Rosella learned how to ride horses well.[54] She was trained in the use of a bow. Although, taught archery and how to hunt, Rosella was never much of a hunter, she considered hunting a man's sport --not the sort of thing for a proper princess. She did not pay as much attention when her father had shown her how to find and follow tracks.[55] Though she did not like to hunt, she did occasionally shoot at targets.[56] Graham taught her his love of swimming. She is a strong swimmer.[57] By the age of fifteen she had years more schooling than any other person her age in whole of the kingdom.[58] Farquhar would later teach her how to draw.

Rosella loved books. She sometimes would rather read than eat or sleep. Being well-read was a good habit that Graham and Valanice always encouraged.[59] According to Rosella; her favorite books series is the The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. According to her, the reason she likes it is; "...It's a seven book series, set in a wonderful fantasy world where horses talk and evil witches live. There's a nice royal family who gets in all kinds of trouble and they always end up going on a quest--hmm, no wonder I like it."[

Rosella is some what messy, and her room is untidy, though she still knows were everything is. Still some messes are too much for her and disgust her. Rosella shares her father's love of water, and loves to, swim or rest in clean, open, sunny, and healthy places near ponds and lakes. She shares her mothers displeasure of climbing treacherous stairs in a dress.

With Alexander missing most of her life and later becoming the King of the Green Isles, Rosella has always been seen as the next heir of Daventry by her family. This may also coincide with the fact that she was the only heir who had experience with the Kingdom's politics and society, but she also had the most experience with the People of Daventry, many of whom are her close friends, companions and servants who would die serving her if they needed to; as she has gained their respect. She also loves her country and her people too much to abandon them. She always planned to return and live in Daventry, no matter where her adventures lead her.[60]

She can be a bit vain about her her hair, and doesn't like anyone having hair as beautiful and luxurious as her own.[61]

When she was younger, she almost always had her own way—and she usually did, except with her mother.


  • In the span of two days, just before her eighteenth birthday, Rosella was tied to a stake and left as sacrifice to a dragon, was rescued by the brother she had never met and thought was dead, watched her father collapse into a near-death coma, was taken to Tamir to find the magic fruit that would save him, kidnapped by a witch, swallowed by a whale, chased by an ogre, escaped a troll, and many other things.[62]
  • It is on her adventure that she follows her heart, develops her courage, makes friends, and outwits her foes![63]
  • Rosella was once trapped in a card game with other Sierra characters, see Rosella quotes (Hoyle I). Rosella spoke with an olde English accent.
  • Rosella found defeating the evil Lolotte quite exhilarating.[64]
  • Rosella has worn different outfits throughout the games, see Rosella's Wardrobe.
  • Rosella's eyes appear blue in several games, and appear greyish brown/dark in KQ5/6. She portrayed with blue eyes in KQ3/4/7, and Hoyle games. Valanice mentions in the Companion that a turquoise bead reminded her of the color of Rosella's eyes. She describes her daughter as a pretty girl, with long golden hair and mischievous blue eyes, dressed in blue silk. Edgar/Otar mentioned how the color blue went with Rosella's eyes. In the game itself Valanice mentions her eye color several times describing them as 'blue' or sky-blue.[65]
  • Though not mentioned directly by name there is a nod to Rosella from the Beast Unicorn. She mentions that Graham's family suffered the same fate as the rest of the mortal inhabitants of Daventry. Additionally this would have include her brother as he is mortal as well.
  • Rosella does not like coffee.
  • Rosella cleaned the house of the Seven Dwarfs to get revenge on how rude they treated her in the mines. Her reasoning was her room was messy, and she knew where everything was, so if she cleaned up their house they would not be able to find their things. However, they actually appreciated her help, and she could not stay angry with them.[66]
  • There aren't any answers in the back of the book. They were there, but Rosella threw them out when she cleaned house.[67]
  • Rosella has travelled outside of the World of Daventry and interacted with other worlds or individuals from across the Sierra Multiverse on many occasions. From her very first quest, to her trip to the Realm of Eldritch, or from Hoyle I/III to Leisure Suit Larry 2/3 in Larry Laffer's universe. Sometimes she has been known to interact with individual from Earth: Al Lowe Interviews Rosella, interview by Bookwyrm. Rosella has a line of dolls in the realm of Gloriana.
  • Rosella has personally met the great dreamer Roberta Williams herself and spent time with her even re-inacting the events of KQ4, while Roberta directed. Roberta also interviewed her to learn more about the events of King's Quest VII.[68]
  • It is said that Rosella inspired a line of puppets sold in far away lands.
  • Does Hoyle 1 possibly suggest that Rosella visited Edgar while he was still living in Tamir a few times? That is why she calls him 'dearest Edgar'?
  • However, it is said that Rosella may be impetuous, but she is no fool. She would marry no man before her time, and she knows near nothing of Edgar. While rumors of an impending marriage happening existed soon after events of KQ7, she was not yet married by the time of KQ8, and still left her options opened.
  • Rosella and her brother are mentioned in KQ1SCI as Graham's "children" he sees in the vision in the magic mirror.
  • Her father, Graham, according to her: doesn't like her talking to commoners. Nor dating them either. This didn’t apply to Connor apparently, although he is technically a local knight, and later became the Marquis of Daventry. Nor did it seem to apply to her talking to other local villagers or Daventry.
  • Valanice taught Rosella to have better sense, than most people.[69] Valanice always told her children there was no such thingas the boogeyman. Little did she know... [70]
  • Graham taught her daughter to always let sleeping dragons lie--or at least stay out of the way of their tails.[71]
  • Rosella has a favorite color that only Roberta Williams could tell us about. The fact that this information exists makes the character much more alive and real.[72]
  • The famous Rosella Stone which is used to help translate the Egyptian hieroglyphics is named after Rosella (it is unclear if she helped discover the artifact or not). It is said that she once met Genesta, a fairy that the Hero once knew. The sarcophagus in Erasmus' mansion in Spielburg appears to be the final resting place of Rosella. How he obtained the artifact is not known.

Behind the scenes

The name of Rosella and Valanice is similar to Rosanella, the daughter of a queen named Balanice.[79]

King's Quest Companion implies that Rosella along with Edgar would be the heirs of Daventry. Rosella lives in Daventry but visits Edgar in Etheria every now and then, or Edgar comes to visit her in Daventry. She apparently barely ever leaves Daventry however, apparently Derek Karlavaegen has never seen her leave the kingdom. Derek Karlavaegen has also never seen her with Edgar and is skeptical that they are even dating. There is also mention of rumors of an impending wedding within the kingdom between Rosella and Edgar.

In KQ5 Rosella was played by Diana Wilson. In KQ6 Rosella was played by Sheryl Bernstein. In KQ7 Rosella was played by Maureen McVerry.

Fluctuating personality

Rosella's personality has fluctuated over the years. While there is not a whole lot to judge on her personality from KQ3 and KQ5 (other than perhaps she is a tad forward in KQ3 wanting to see Alexander's bum to confirm if he has a birthmark; how does she know about that particular birthmark?).

In King's Quest 4 she is fairly prim and proper, but also generally kind and gentle, and respectful (she is truly mortified by the petulent prince she encounters). She is virtuous, humble and meek. This is how her disguise even works because she is able to 'fit' in with those around her, and does not consider herself better than them.

King's Quest 7 and the Berkeley Boulevard novels however change her personality upside down.

She is egotistical, conceited, bratty, and rude. Proud of her station, and willing to rub the lower caste positions of people in her kingdom in their noses. In See No Weevil by the end of the story to her favor she does start to grow out of this, and start to see she needs to treat people with respect. She does grow into the character you see in KQ4.

Then KQ7 is released: In a preview for KQ7, she was described as a Petulant Princess.[80] At least for the first half of the game she acts like a whiny conceited princess again, immature, lack of empathy and compassion at times. However, she does appear to grow through the story.

Even the cross-over secondary material such as her appearance in Leisure Suit Larry material (see Rosella (LSL Bedside Companion) and Larry's Women Speak: The Rosella Interview) and Rosella's First Quest she is portrayed as slightly obnoxious, petulant and preppy compared to her King's Quest IV appearance.

Reboot Canon

In the Reboot Canon's universe, at some point they did get married, and had a young son named Gart.[81]

The new series does play on her petulant princess aspects again, even into her 50s when she is training Gart to be the Kingdom's heir in her place, and looks down on the fact that Alexander abandoned the country to rule elsewhere.
