Elza (or Ella) was a very fine weaver slave from Meereen owned by Grazdan zo Galare.[1]


When Elza began to get old, Grazdan zo Galare purchased half a dozen young girls and commanded Elza to instruct them in the secrets of her craft.[1] An unknown amount of time later, Elza died.[1]

A Dance with Dragons

Grazdan zo Galare presents himself to Queen Daenerys Targaryen at her court in Meereen, telling her that the young girls who had been taught by Elza, now freed from slavery following Daenerys's occupation of Meereen, have opened a shop by the harbor wall to sell their weavings. Gazdan demands a portion of their earnings, as he feels the girls had earned their craft because of him. When Grazdan is unable to remember whether the old slave was named Elza or Ella, Daenerys denies the petition, claiming that Elza, not him, had taught the girls their craft, and commands him to buy the girls a new loom for forgetting Elza's name.[1]
