What Is Emhyr’s Relationship To Ciri?
Bart Edwards portrays Duny, who we now know is Emhyr van Emreis, the emperor of Nilfgaard and father to Ciri. This explains why Emhyr is also joining the battle to find Ciri, as she is his own daughter.
Duny first appeared in Season 1 of The Witcher and was presumed dead after he supposedly drowned. But, it’s clear that he is alive and well and is now known as Emhyr van Emreis, ruler of Nilfgaard. When he first appeared in Season 1, he was entangled in a secret relationship with Pavetta, who we all know is the mother to Ciri.
More details on what happened to Duny in the events between his supposed death and reveal as Emhyr will likely be outlined in Season 3 of The Witcher.
