The White Lady Information

The White Lady is a mysterious non-insectoid root being who is wrapped in an immobile shell, and was The Pale King's partner at one point in Hallownest’s history. Along with the Pale King, she too is responsible for creating the Vessels that would seal The Radiance. Though she traitorously abandoned the king upon realizing the Infection could not be stopped, forcibly took over a territory that had belonged to the Mosskin, and hid with the warrior Dryya guarding her. Upon finding her in Queen’s Gardens, she has aged to blindness and senility. She also has no idea that her warrior servant Dryya had utterly failed and been killed by a group of powerful mantises. 

Once the White Lady is first encountered, she provides The Knight half of the Kingsoul's charm and coldly asks The Knight to finish off the Hollow Knight and to replace the vessel as a seal to contain The Radiance.

  • Location: The White Lady Can be found northwest at the Queen's Gardens but requires you to defeat the Traitor Lord.
  • Combat: Players may not kill The White Lady.
  • Rewards: Gives half of the Kingsoul once she is encountered.
