I’m so sad for her.

The last line of the chapter…”I am the Queen; I’ll kill Orual too.”

WOW!! What a statement of knowing how much she has changed and lost even in her Victory.

She seems to think that by killing the part of her that is Orual, she, as the Queen, will be free from the loneliness she feels. She’s having a hard time doing that, though. I thought it interesting that as she sat through the victory banquet, she recognized that Orual is still very much a part of her: “Three parts of me was a shamed and frightened Orual who looked forward to a scolding from the Fox for being there at all, and was bitterly lonely; the fourth part was Queen, proud (though dazed too) amid the heat and clamour, sometimes dreaming she could laugh loud and drink deep like a man and a warrior, next moment, more madly, answering to Trunia’s daffing, as if her veil hid the face of a pretty woman.” p. 223 I, too, felt very sad for her in that moment.
