is a small holding located in Siovale. It is administered by the
seneschal Purnell Friote and his wife Richeline. By
Scion, they have several children: Denis is the oldest,
while Katherine and Charles are roughly Imri's age.
Katherine is "a year and some months" Imri's elder (KS 15).
Montrève's banner is "green, a crescent moon in argent upper right,
and sable crag lower left" (KC 9). Phèdre added Kushiel's Dart to one
quadrant: a gold dart piercing a ragged crimson circle (KJ 253).
Montrève's colors are forest green and gold (KM 413, 557). Artus Labbé is Phèdre's kennel-master (KS 142).
