History Edit

Before the powers of faerie were diminished, Maeve Reed was known as the goddess Conchenn.

About a hundred years before her introduction in the series, King Taranis asked her to marry him, but she refused. When he demanded a reason, she told him she thought he was infertile, and she wanted to have children. An infertile king was a death sentence for the court, so he exiled her to keep his secret. Mentioning her name in court after her exile was forbidden. As a child, Princess Meredith was almost beaten to death by Taranis when she asked why Conchenn had been exiled.

She became Maeve Reed, the Golden Goddess of Hollywood, who for four decades ruled American cinema as its biggest star. She married Gordon Reed, her director and a human, whom she truly loved. When Gordon was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she approaches Meredith and asks for a fertility ritual that would help her conceive a child with her dying husband. Merry and Galen performed the ritual successfully.

Taranis, however, feared that Maeve had revealed his secret to the other Sidhe and released the Hungry Ones, the ghosts of dead gods, and the Nameless, a mass of terrible magics removed from the Sidhe during the last weirding, and aimed them at Maeve in an attempt to kill her. She was rescued from the Nameless by Merry and her men. 

After her husband's death, she fled to Europe for the duration of her pregnancy to avoid any further assassination attempts, leaving her estate guest house to Merry and her men.  She eventually gave birth to Liam Reed and returned to the US.
