Aeldene Stonebridge is an Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She sides with the rebel Aes Sedai, where she runs her Ajah's network of eyes-and-ears as before in the Tower (TFoH, Ch. 27).

She is from an Andoran mining village in the Mountains of Mist. Her crooked nose is said to come from fist-fighting when she was a girl. She is of middling strength in the One Power (ACoS, Ch. 11).


  • After the Tower split, she was believed to stay with the White Tower, before it is known that Elaida abolished the Blue Ajah. She later arrives at Salidar and is outraged to hear that Siuan has revealed her secret office and taken it over. She reclaims the eyes-and-ears from Siuan and additionally wants to pry out the Amyrlin's network, but Egwene supports Siuan (TFoH, Ch. 27; ACoS, Ch. 11).


"Aeldene won't take it away from you, Siuan, and neither will anyone else." When Aeldene reclaimed the Blue eyes-and-ears, others had begun thinking that the Blue should not have the Amyrlin's as well. No one suggested that it should be in Egwene's control. The Hall was to have it. So Romanda said, and Lelaine. Each intended to be the one in charge, of course, the one those reports came to first, for being first to know had advantages. Aeldene thought those agents should be added to the Blue network since Siuan was Blue. (Egwene; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 11)
