Queen Ellamaria Remanis is the Queen of Misthalin, ruling alongside her husband, King Roald Remanis III in the capital city of Varrock. Players may start the Garden of Tranquility quest by speaking with her, in which players must find rare seeds, plants, and other decorative items for her garden. It is revealed during the quest from the Wise Old Man in Draynor Village that, before becoming a queen, Ellamaria was once a peasant, working as a barmaid in the Blue Moon Inn in southern Varrock, and not related to any royalty what-so-ever. King Roald seems to be extremely afraid of her because of her short temper.
During the Return to Canifis novel, her origins are revealed. She appeared to Squire Theodore several times, harassing him about him letting the Society of Owls cover up the murders of the Wyrd. Eventually, at the Midsummer's Eve Festival, Theodore recognises her, dressed in attire outside her class, approaching the King, whereby he orders her to be detained, believing her to be a threat. When the King holds parliament with the people to discuss the recent Wyrd attacks, she is brought forward as a representative of the people of Varrock due to her peasant status. Eventually, after Ebenezer falls ill to the Wyrd attack, it is revealed that Ellamaria had been set free, and sometimes tended to Ebenezer whilst he slept. During these times, it is also revealed that King Roald often visited to check on Ebenezer's condition, although many suspected it was purely to see Ellamaria. It is interesting to note that Queen Ellamaria is not mentioned in the Varrock Census, written in year 160 of the Fifth Age. It may be that Ellamaria was not living in Varrock at the time of its writing, or it could be a mistake/omission by Jagex. Despite her humble beginnings, Ellamaria now looks down on all commoners and adventurers, acting very haughty. She appears in the vision at the Sacred Forge in Camdozaal, during the Defender of Varrock quest, and later on a line of five Varrockian guards are seen protecting her from the zombie invasion during the Battle of Varrock Castle.
- Ellamaria wears the same crown as King Lathas, only with an emerald instead of a ruby embedded.
- She is admired even at the Kingdom of Asgarnia, the empire having a statue in the Warriors' guild in her honour.
