Thom refers to Mat as having married the Empress of Seanchan. When did they learn that she became the Empress? Or is Thom using it more as an exaggeration for which Mat does not offer further qualification?

All there in the book.Much of the news was not new to him; by courtesy of Verin's gateway, Mat had traveled to Caemlyn more quickly than most rumors. But Elayne had gateways of her own, and some of the news from Tear and Illian was fresh. There was talk of the new Seanchan Empress. So Tuon really had crowned herself, or whatever it was the Seanchan did to name a new leader.
