|Katherine and Nadia|
|Status||Mother and Daughter; they show their softer sides near each other|
In 1490, Katerina became pregnant by an unknown man, and her family disowned her for the shameful birth of her illegitimate daughter, Nadia. Katherine begged her father to hold the child just once, but he replied that she had disgraced the family, and took the child away to a new family, claiming it would be better for both of them to never see one another. Katherine cries in pain as she is taken away. In 1498, when Nadia was only 8 years old, Katherine escaped Klaus, and found her way back to Bulgaria. Katherine searched every village and every cottage but couldn't find her.
