Vileblood Queen Annalise is a non-player character in Bloodborne.

"I am Annalise, Queen of Castle Cainhurst. Ruler of the Vilebloods, and sworn enemy of the church."


Annalise is the queen and sole survivor of the Vilebloods, vampiric aristocrats born from forbidden blood who once lived in Cainhurst Castle. With the exception of Queen Annalise herself, the Vilebloods were murdered during a genocidal invasion by Logarius and his band of Executioners; Logarius then sealed the queen in an illusionary prison and assumed the role of its warden, repelling any who ventured into the castle and threatened to break the seal.

Annalise Information


Annalise's Location



First time:

Visitor… I claim no subjects, but here lieth Our throne. Kneel afore us… …or get thee gone.

(Not kneeling) Such impudence. Defiled, are We, yet still Queen. We shall not give audience to an ill-mannered beast. Get thee gone.

(Kneeling) Visitor… Moon-scented hunter… I am Annalise, Queen of Castle Cainhurst. Ruler of the Vilebloods, and sworn enemy of the church. Yet, Our people are murdered, and We are prisoner to this wretched mask. What is it thou’rt in search of?

Swear Oath to the Vilebloods:

Well, well… An odd hunter thou art indeed… We’ve tired of these piteous nights… Share in Our plight, and take oath against the church. If thou wouldst this path walk… …I prithee partake of my rotted blood.

(Swear Vileblood Oath) Very well. Drink deep of Our blood. Feel the spreading corruption burn. Now, thou’rt too a Vileblood. We two, the very last on this earth. We await thy return. For the honor of Cainhurst.

(Refuse) "A wise choice...There is no more to be said...away from mine gaze.

(Leaving, then returning) "Speak thy mind."

(Not kneeling) Arrant fool. Vileblood or no, forget not; We are thy Queen. Bend the knee.

Giving Blood Dregs:

Closest of kin, last of Our kind. What is thy wish?

(Offer Blood Dreg) Thy gift pleases Us. Let this reward be thine. Indulge thyself in Our tainted blood.

(Leave) We await thy return. For the honour of Cainhurst.

Showing her the Ring of Betrothal:

Closest of kin, bearer of Our blood. What is thy wish?

(Propose Marriage) Speak not, those words. We have little need of a consort. Such a path would belike lead to further ruin. Thou'rt dear to Us. We would see no harm befall thee...

(Propose again) Ahh, still thy honeyed tongue... The thought alone sufficeth. Thy worth is too great. Now, speak no more in the matter.

(Propose again..again)Honestly!

(Leave) We await thy return. For the honour of Cainhurst.

When attacking her:

Enough. If only Our life was so easily forfeit... Grieve not, for Us.

How sad this is. If only Our life was so easily forfeit...

(Not kneeling) Kneel.

(Kneeling) Well, well. Thou wearest a second face. It matters not. Our flesh is undying. Speak thy mind.

After reviving her (killed by player):

Arrant fool. Vileblood or no, forget not; We are thy Queen. Bend the knee.

After acquiring and creating the Great Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice:

(Greeting) Closest of kin, last of our kind. I welcome thee. What is thy wish

(Leaving) We await thy return. For the honour of Cainhurst.

(Leaving if Blood Dreg was given) We await thy return... This chamber was made not for one alone... For the honour of Cainhurst.

Note: You must open the Great Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice with your ownmaterials. Using a glyph does not count.



Other Notes:

  1. If enough damage is done she will fall of her chair unconscious. She can also be killed by the player.
  2. Is killed at the end of Alfred's questline, but can be revived as normal.
  3. After being killed by Alfred, her remains writhe around in her chair
  4. While speaking to her, she extends her arm while the hunter "grabs" it and kisses it whilst being a few distances away from each other.
  5. Going up to Annalise and talking to her without kneeling will irritate her. She'll tell you to kneel.
  6. The Ring of Betrothal may be used to trigger special dialogue.
  7. In the banquet hall where the Noble Dress is found, there is a portrait of a woman in a crown holding a blonde infant, suggesting a connection between Annalise and Arianna.
  8. Lady Maria and Annalise are distant relatives.

      Using her dress and mask on PS4 right now thanks to mods. How can I contribute to the wiki with screenshots and info on the items? I coupled it with the Long Surgical Gloves and the White Church Dress, Crown of Illusions to top if off.

        I gave alfred the letter and then immediately killed him so now I get to simp and have a wheel life is good for jerks

          Is she being revived cannon, after Alfred kills her? Or is it just to be able to turn in blood dregs? I'm curious as she doesn't mention anything about it at all. Lol

            anyone else notice Annalise's helm/crown shares similarities with both Griffith from Berserk's helm and the character from the Elden Ring Trailer?

            • She's a siren. Just using everyone for her own amusement. And when your time comes and you aswell turn into a useless flea she will bewitch the next one to be her slave. Also pretty sure the mask was her own idea to prevent herself from bloodsucking and eventually joining the jumping, blood sucking peasants.

                I offered a lot of blood dregs and she said” this room was not made for one alone”, what is she trying to hint

                  I remember it clear as day, helping some people get past Ludwig when another cooperative joined as "Annalise Vileblood Queen." I thought "Hey a role player, what fun," only to see the character model of Annalise with a Logarius wheel that smashed Ludwig into nothing in less than 10 strikes with 3 player health bonus. "Respect."

                    If look at the portraits in the castle, you can see her portrait, where she is a hot pale redhead, and now, she is a pale hot silverhaired.

                      Great for seeing how much damage you can do with max beasthood. Seriously, her health is so high you could probably get to max beasthood without killing her to check how much damage you can do (depending on your runes, armor set, weapon's base damage, etc.) Only other reliable way to test it out is The One Reborn.

                        In the section 'Other Notes', it says Queen Annalise and Lady Maria are distant relatives. Where does that knowledge come from?

                          She is based around this vampiric Carmilla character. The whole castle is full of women proving that she is possibly lesbian. Another connection is that her name is countess Karnstein and guess what the place is called?Cainhurst.I strongly believe that on her missing seat there might've been sitting another woman. Hence why you get refused over and over again.

                            She’s very similar to Count Dracula, especially his depiction in the 1992 movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula Portrayed By Gary Oldman

                              If you kill her and not Alfred does she die permanently? (I know it isn't permanent but in the sence of the game) or does it ave t be Alfred cause I killed Ebriatas, the meme of the cosmos, and now I am tempted to revive her.

                                i don't think the chalice is the trigger for the "this chamber was made not for one alone" line? i've gotten it before i ever entered a chalice dungeon.

                                  Can you join the Vilebloods and also have Alfred kill her, or will Alfred be hostile to you because of the covenant you're in?

                                    If I accept the Vileblood offer and then try to bring the unopened summons to Alfred, will he be hostile because I've already accepted the vileblood covenant? I'd like to get the rewards for both covenants, so if possible I would like to join the VIlebloods, unlock their gear, finish Alfred's questline to get his rewards, and then use the queenly flesh to resurrect the vileblood covenant. Will this work or just agro Alfred? And will I even be invited back into the vileblood covenant afer giving him the summons?

                                      I spent about 2 minutes wailing on her with the wheel of pain and she eventually fell off her chair. Pretty entertaining. 10/10

                                        Here is the dialogue when proposing to Annalise Queen of the Vilebloods, using the Ring of Betrothal (from Depth 5 Chalice Dungeons)

                                          I just spent 40 minutes getting my ass kicked by Ebrietas so I could revive her, hoping that some she'd be grateful or at least she wouldn't be wearing her mask, since she talks about it like she's wearing it involuntarily. Only to find her sitting there as she ever was, same dialogue, no "thanks for fixing me up" no nothing. It'd be useful if you want to offer her blood dregs but otherwise it's not very useful at all.

                                            Made a vid about where you should go in order to revive Annalise and another little funny ditbit I noticed. Enjoy!

                                              Does she always say, "For this chamber was not made for one alone"? because she just said that and I've never once heard that line before

                                                She seems to be one of the few NPCs that doesn't have an armor set that you can get. Am I wrong? I'd love to hunt people dressed as Annalise.

                                                  I have all 3 badges but answer to Annalise. During my Eileen's quest the Hunter that put her down was also a Cainhurst Knight (which lends credence to the fact that the Crows hunt down Blood-addled Hunters (Vilebloods). At the very least he wore Cainhurst armor and used a Chikage.

                                                    After collecting both badges, I let Alfred have his fun with the Queen and while he reveled in his pride I stabbed him in the back an painted the Queen's stone assembly with his blood. A fitting gift to the host I thought.

                                                      I dunno why everyone has such a fan hard-on for Annalise, she literally just sits on her decrepit ass and talks ***** even though her rule and legacy are long since illegitimate. Best just keep her in your pocket.

                                                        And after i kneel again she says something about having two sides and how she's undying. Is it because I already revived her from Alfred?

                                                            I was a bit dissapointed with her character and her location. She offers you to be "one" of them, OK, but If Alfred kills her you can revive her and ???????????? Nothing happens, she´s still just sitting and talking the sme things. Nothing like "thanks my darling", or offering to sit next to her at throne. Shame...

                                                                She never has a blood child. Arriana does tho, a supposed 'cainhurst descendant.' I think she's playing herself a fool, a queen in name only.

If you come back she'll be a battered mess and you'll just get the Queenly Flesh over and over again I assume. If you do this before Alfred's questline I think the game thinks he just did it so you'll just be skipping his dialogue here.

                                                                  • I have video clips saved so I can transpose her dialogue in but for some reason the edit button on this page is disabled. Does this page require like a special account to edit?

I had Arthur kill the Queen of the Vilebloods, obtained the Radiance rune associated with the Executioners, and also already joined the Confederates. I revived the Queen later on in the game and she allowed me to join the Vilebloods! Idk if it makes any difference but I NEVER spoke to her once before having Alfred kill her. After her revival she talked to me as if she hadn't seen me before and allowed me to join the Vilebloods as normal. I also had unequipped my Executioner Radiance rune before speaking to her.

                                                                      • Anonymous

They didn't know exactly what caused it, but they said there's a possibility it was the accursed brew. Can someone chek if it's true?
