Do you mean "Careen", as in "lurch or twist"?  It's a nice word, and
"loudin" probably isn't a mistranscription of "louden".

Is "Mssr." meant to stand for "Monsignor", as I like to style myself?

For the record, it is asserted by Sethra's envoy (_TPotD_, pg 113) that
"the Princess herself scarely survived the birth of her child by a year,
falling to the first wave of Plagues..."
