The fourth of the dynastic line of Argent Mirrors, Adonethwen was the second daughter of Ananaon Illistim. Though the grand-daughter of Linsandrych, Adonethwen was born over two thousand years after her death. Within two generations they had thus spanned almost ten thousand years of rule. She was mostly known for her poetry, and abdicated to her son after attempting to co-rule with him. She had no daughters as heirs.

Adonethwyn was born in -43,231 Modern Era (5,876 Illistim) during her mother's reign. She assumed the Peacock Throne at the age of 1,213 presumably after the death of her mother, who was over 2,500 years old at the time of her birth. She remained in power until the age of 3,802 after 2,589 years, when she was succeeded by her son Celemerun Illistim whom she had at age 2,957. After abdicating her throne, she retired into scholarly life, recorded as having been a member of the Order of Lorekeepers.
