Menzoberra was a drow high priestess of Lolth, who founded the city of Menzoberranzan.[4]

HistoryEdit

After decades of infighting among the drow of Golothaer, and at the behest of the Spider Queen, who gave her the title Yor'thae (Chosen one)[6], Menzoberra the Kinless led seven drow families from their southern holdings of Great Bhaerynden into the Northdark.[3] By -3917 DR[7], after several years in the dark deeps of the Underdark, the refugees came to a giant cavern inhabited by a swarm of spiders and the legendary beholder, Many Eyes.[8] After a long battle with many losses for the drow, Menzoberra laid the final blow on the beholder.[9] When the battle was over, a yochlol appeared in front of the surviving drow proclaiming the cavern was to be their new home: "Menzoberranzan" in recognition of Menzoberra's service to Lolth.[9]
