|Family:||Kelsea Glynn (daughter), Thomas Raleigh (brother)|
Elyssa Raleigh was the Queen of the Tearling before she died. Her daughter is Kelsea Glynn. She was a very different person compared to her daughter, more a 'dolls and dresses' person and not particularly smart, although smarter than her brother Thomas Raleigh. Kelsea constantly compares herself to her mother, because she hates that Elyssa made peace with Mortmesne by creating the Shipment, and tries to find ways to fix her mother's mistakes.
