The Padishah Empress Yvette Hagal-Corrino was born on the planet Hagal as Yvette Hagal in the year 10024 AG. She was a member of House Hagal.

Marriage[edit | edit source]

The 80th Padishah Emperor, Elrood Corrino IX, was originally married to a woman 2 years older than himself, Barbara Mutelli, whom he wed in 10019 AG, a year after his coronation as Emperor (the same time he gave birth to Wensicia Mutelli. This marriage lasted 7 years, until Barbara's death in 10026 AG, leaving behind an 8-year-old Wensicia, who, since she had been borne out of wedlock was not a royal princess or heir. Yvette was 2 at the time.

Elrood remained unmarried for the following decade, until Yvette was 12. At this point it was decided he would wed again.

In 10036 AG, Yvette was called to Kaitain where she became the second wife of Elrood. The marriage was part of the process of House Hagal solidifying an alliance with the Imperial House Corrino.

Yvette Hagal-Corrino was the only person (including Elrood's three other wives) to be accorded the privilege of sitting on a throne of her own beside her husband's Golden Lion Throne, which was at the center of the top platform in the Imperial audience chamber called the Selamik.

Children[edit | edit source]

Then the young Empress produced three daughters: Princess Crystane Corrino, Princess Tara Corrino and Princess Edwina Corrino (b. 10070 AG).

Their youngest daughter Edwina married Count Ilban Richese in 10090 AG (changing her name to Edwina Richese). She in turn begot Helena Richese who begot Leto Atreides, the father of Paul. This makes Yvette the great-grandmother of Paul Atreides.

Death[edit | edit source]

The Padishah Empress died in 10075 AG, when Edwina was 5 years old. As the birth dates of Crystane and Tara were unknown (being listed leftmost on the Corrino birth chart they are likely older sisters) their age at the time of their mother's death is unknown.

Her untimely death was succeeded by the Great Houses of the Landsraad.

Over the next generations, her biological stepson, Shaddam Corrino IV grudgingly permitted his wife, Lady Anirul Corrino to do the same thing, albeit on a step far below his throne to the left side.
