Okay, what I've got on the Dawn Queen.
The Dawn Queen was originally the Millennia Kings sister, who died before he could reach her when his country was overrun. She made a promise to him to never leave him while he walked the earth. Due to contingency planning beforehand, this soon became an important fact – as a Lich, he would never die, and thus she would never leave him.
So every generation the Dawn Queen is reborn, without conscious knowledge of who she is. The Millennia King is somehow able to sense this, and a search of the kingdom is commenced. This usually happens when she “comes of age”, or hits puberty or something. Girls who give off the same “vibe” as the Dawn Queen are brought to the Spire, and girls who are presented by the Great Houses and such are brought along, too. A series of non intrusive “tests” are done, with the Millennia King holding “interviews” (of a sort) with each girl, to determine if their intentions are true, etc. Since the MK was once human and is thus fallible, he will sometimes chose the wrong girl, even if she matches to what the Dawn Queen should be.
Once a girl is chosen, they hold the Rite of the Dawn, in which the Millennia King and Dawn Queen are “wed”. This wedding is not the literal sense, but of a spiritual kind. The Millennia King is the night, and the winter, and the death (not evil death, impartial, etc) to the Dawn Queen’s day, and summer, and life. The ceremony mirrors that, with the Dawn Queen offering the bounty of the summer and spring, and the Millennia King returning the gifts of autumn and winter.
