  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Celydonn is the setting of two Fantasy trilogies by Teresa Edgerton: the Green Lion Trilogy and the Celydonn trilogy. It can be thought of as an Alternate Universe mediaeval Britain in which magic is real, but it isn't a straight Alternate History setting.

For example, the setting as introduced in Child of Saturn has recognizable analogues to various figures of the King Arthur legend - the kingmaker wizard Glastyn, the High King and his queen, the knights of the king's Order of St. Mark - but with significant changes to the characters and a different culture and history.

The Green Lion Trilogy consists of:

  • Child of Saturn
  • The Moon in Hiding
  • The Work of the Sun

The titles of the Green Lion trilogy (including that of the trilogy itself) are references to alchemy. (The king's wizard, who is the female protagonist, is an alchemist, as was her predecessor. They both pursue alchemy not for the sake of becoming rich, since it's simply not cost effective, but for how it tries and purifies the one who seeks wisdom by its study.)

The Celydonn trilogy, a sequel trilogy to the Green Lion trilogy, focusing on a different subset of the original trilogy's cast, consists of:

  • The Castle of the Silver Wheel
  • The Grail and the Ring
  • The Moon and the Thorn
Tropes used in Celydonn include:
