Crossroads of Twilight, Aes Sedai, Egwene, Amyrlin, White Tower
Robert Jordan has spoken...
At the end of Crossroads of Twilight, did the Aes Sedai know immediately who Egwene was? Or did they find the Amyrlin’s stole, and thus conclude that she was important?
They recognized her face. Remember, she did spend some time in the White Tower despite all of her jaunts outside.
