Rivka was born in the Star Kingdom of Manticore in 1900 PD. Her commoner family was not extremely wealthy, but well enough off to get her into Queen's College without depending on scholarships.
In 1922 PD, shortly after her twenty-second birthday, Rivka and Prince Roger were married in King Michael's Cathedral in Landing. The ceremony was performed by Robert Telmachi, the Archbishop of Manticore and Rabbi Yaakov O'Reilly, with Honor Harrington as the matron of honor. (HH13)
