Alemander V was the first son and heir of King Alemander IV.[note 1] He got along terribly with his father. The latter found the former to be greedy and domineering and wished that his second son, Alemander V's half-brother Haedrak, could be the next to rule instead.
He died during the beginning of the Ten Black Days of Eleint in the Year of the Bright Blade, 1347 DR, when all of Castle Tethyr burned to the ground. His wife and two sons also died in the fire, as did the king and queen.
Rumors and LegendsEdit
While never proven, it was believed that Prince Alemander V orchestrated the king's death with General Sharboneth. However, the two men turned against each other and the fires got out of hand. Sharboneth also died in the fires, though his body was never found.
Additionally, in the two months before the Ten Black Days, Prince Alemander had had two of the king's main councilors executed for treason for plotting against his father. Another councilor was mysteriously poisoned during a feast, and a fourth committed suicide when documents were found connecting him to the Zhentarim. All four of these men had spoken openly of their dislike of the prince, and some thus believed that all four deaths were the result of the machinations of Alemander V.
