Alton's wife was born and raised in the palace of Del. When she was of age, she married Alton and became the queen consort of Deltora. At some point she gave birth to their son, Endon.
Alton's wife was slowly poisoned and killed by Alton's chief advisor Prandine, shortly before Alton himself was killed by Prandine using the same poison. Prandine, who was secretly a Shadow Lord spy, framed both deaths as being caused by a mysterious fever.
