But, and this is a personal feeling since we have nothing to back it up one way or the other, I don't think she did leave Janduin a note. I think she went out to fight against his wishes, and he was busy commanding his army, and she was actually and figuratively lost on the mountain. It would explain his devastation and subsequent suicide.
This leaves the problem of why she was on the other side of the river from the last day's battle. Could my reading of New Spring have been wrong on that subject? I went back an checked several times 'cause I certainly noticed the contradiction with Tigraine showing up on Dragonmount. (Don't have it right now.)

Her returning to Andor was the most likely reason I could see for being there. I suppose we could invoke a deus ex machina and assume Gitara Sedai gave her more foretelling that she never told anybody about. Can't say I like it, though.

I'm going with typo. There is precedent, after all, for RJ forgetting where DM is.

And is she even mentioned at all in NS?

Road from Tar Valon to Caemlyn exists on the Dragonmount side of the River.

Good question, indeed.


I've wondered if Gitara set-up Tigraine to die... with Tam al'Thor unknowning soldiers nearby? (RJ didn't give readers much information to work with here)


The Amyrlin Seat seemed to know where the true Dragon birth location was. The Accepted and Aes Sedai were both sent off the Island on a series of false trails.


Recollect Gitara set up at least three blood wars: Andor's 3nd war of succession, Aiel War across the Westlands, Cairhien fighting post-Aiel War. The Tower has blood on it's hands already.

New Spring is where we get the most detail about the Battle of the Shining Walls. Tigraine is not mentioned, nor is Tam for that matter, but Lan's position in the army gives us the detail.
