A detailed image of King Roald III.

King Roald Remanis III, more commonly known simply as King Roald, is the current ruler of the prosperous kingdom of Misthalin. His residence is within Varrock Palace, where the Varrock Palace Secret Guard work to keep him safe. He is located in the south-east side of the Palace on the ground floor.

King Roald's examine text in Runescape Classic calls him King Roald VIII, although he is the third.


King Roald resides in Varrock Palace.

King Roald is the son of King Roald II, a monarch most famous for his efforts to reclaim the Shield of Arrav from the Phoenix Gang. Although little is currently known of King Roald's early history, he is known to have had a pampered upbringing, learning to read from the Palace's librarian, Reldo.

Roald became king of Misthalin in year 150 of the Fifth age, when his father died. The Census of Varrock from year 160 states his profession to be 'Our glorious king', and Roald was not married when the Census was written. In fact no Ellamaria appears in the whole census, implying she did not live in Varrock before then. Roald is said by Phileas to be "a good friend" of Duke Horacio, but is not a member of the Lumbridge Secret Council.

Since his rise to the position of king, many people have accepted Roald III as a generally good ruler. Under his rule, the city of Varrock has prospered greatly, and has seen the renovation of the Varrock Museum and the famous Grand Exchange. Misthalin as a whole has also benefited, seeing such movements as the incorporation of Edgeville and the construction of the Misthalin Training Centre of Excellence.

There are certain groups that feel Roald is weak in the face of the Church of Saradomin, and others that would go so far as to see him assassinated. His hesitance in matters such as the recent conflicts with Morytania have earned him many enemies. However, it is a time of turmoil for the king, what with recent activities in the Wilderness, and the ever-growing threat of war with the east, it is no surprise he has been struggling. To combat these threats, the king opened the Beacon Network, which players can help out with in the All Fired Up quest and corresponding minigame, not daring to wage open war against Morytania lest the world once again erupts into a second God Wars.
