King Leopold is a character in the Wereworld series. He was a Werelion, the Tyrant of Westland, the second husband of Queen Amelie and the father of Prince Lucas. Tyrant of Westland, Leopold comes from the southern continent of Bast and assumed the throne fifteen years ago. For hundreds of years Westland was known as the Land of the Wolf with King Wergar, the last king of this line until his undeserving death at the hands of Leopold during the last Werewar. As such it is now the domain of the
Lion, who subsequently proclaimed himself as ruler of all the Seven Realms. Although now considering Highcliff his home, his ties to 'the old country', Bast is still strong. A headstrong megalomaniac he'll do everything in his power to see the last of Wergar's children dead.
