The Raven King as a Child

"When King Henry ask the boy his name the boy’s response was that he did not have one1.

1When John d’ Uskglass was a child in Faerie, the Sidhe (those who adopted him as their own), called him a word in their own language which means “Starling”. John d’ Uskglass was a name the boy took from his father, but in the early part of his life he was known by many titles his friends and enemies gave him: the King; the Raven King; the Black King; the King of the North."

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke
