Attendants to the King of AttoliaEdit
Many of the attendants to the King of Attolia were chosen because of their rank as the sons and nephews of barons of either considerable power or favour to Attolia.
- Sejanus, the second son of Baron Erondites, a former lieutenant of the Queen's Guard, one of the king's attendants. He leads and bullies the other attendants into playing pranks on the king.
- Hilarion, the oldest of the king's attendants. Relatively noble in nature, he supports the queen. He takes a leadership role amongst the attendants when Sejanus is not present.
- Philologos, the youngest of the king's attendants, the heir of a baron and highest in rank among the attendants. He doesn't like Sejanus making them play pranks on the king, but is unable to speak against Sejanus. Eugenides admits that he had some hope for Philologos becoming genuinely loyal, though Sejanus's influence on him ultimately prevented it. Because of his age, he is often regarded as unintelligent and inexperienced, but is more perceptive than he appears.
- Dionis, one of the king's attendants, whose family has never supported the queen.
- Cleon, one of the king's attendants, mentions the attendants have no key for the lock on the door to the king's room
- Sotis, one of the king's attendants, implied to be of the same rank as Hilarion.
- Pelles, one of the king's attendants, sent by the king to cancel a meeting with Baron Meinedes.
- Ion, one of the king's attendants. Assigned to attend Sophos during his stay in Attolia. Has a sweetheart named Zenia. Has enough tact and nerve to stand up to the Mede Ambassador Melheret.
- Lamion, one of the king's attendants, Philologos calls him an idiot for dismissing Philologos's ability to accurately observe the king's reaction to learning Nahuseresh was responsible for an assassination attempt by Sounis.
- Verix, one of the king's attendants, assigned to attend to Sophos during his stay in Attolia.
Attendants to the Queen of AttoliaEdit
- Phresine, the queen's senior attendant, a much older woman who is well-trusted by the queen. Unlike most of the queen's attendants, she does not vehemently oppose Eugenides marrying the queen.
- Chloe, one of the queen's attendants, one of the younger ones. Not terribly clever, was taken in by Nahuseresh's good looks and thought the same of the queen. Though she is dismissed by the queen in The Queen of Attolia, she returns as one of the queen's attendants in The King of Attolia.
- Aglaia, one of the queen's attendants, appears in The Queen of Attolia, helping to arrange the queen's hair and put on her earrings, and in A Conspiracy of Kings, removes pins from Attolia's hair as the queen is talking to Eugenides.
- Elia, one of the queen's attendants, she comments on the king and queen dancing in The King of Attolia.
- Ileia, one of the queen's attendants, one of the younger ones. Has dark hair. Comments to Costis that she "didn't expect [the king] ever did as he was told." Appears in The King of Attolia.
- Imenia, though not one of the first, is one of the queen's most senior attendants. Brings Costis to the queen's apartments when Attolia wants to know if Eugenides is looking out the window of his room. Appears in The King of Attolia.
- Iolanthe, one of the queen's attendants, announces the arrival of the royal physician when he comes to tell the king about quinalums in the lethium. Appears in The King of Attolia.
- Luria, one of the queen's attendants, speaks with Phresine shortly after Costis breaks the lock on the door to the king's room. Appears in The King of Attolia.
- Xanthe, an attendant to the queen of Eddis. Presumbly, she is an older woman since she had been Eddis's nurse and still serves Eddis as her attendant. She is illiterate.
