The she-pirate known as Valeria of the Red Brotherhood made her living by sailing the Vilayet Sea. She was strikingly beautiful, strong-willed, and a skilled fighter, which earned her the admiration and attraction of Conan
the Cimmerian. After their first meeting, the two became lovers and shared many adventures together.
In the movie Conan the Barbarian
(1982), Valeria was played by actress Sandahl Bergman. Her character was written to be an amalgamation with the pirate queen Belit
, a different lover of Conan who died tragically. Like Belit, Valeria was killed in battle and her spirit briefly returned after death in order to aid Conan.
