A lot of Provincial nobles and leaders worship Yanafal Tarnils - especially if they have a military role.

Estal Donge isn't trying to "copy Hon-Eel" - she's just following the tried and true method of being the consort to the prince and controlling him that way. It didn't work because Temertain is a failure as a prince, doesn't perform any of his sacred duties, and stays there because Fazzur finds his existence useful.

Estal Donge is in King of Sartar and makes an appearance in the Sartar Book.
