The Al'Jimni family is a minor noble family, to whom the Cijara castle once belonged. When her father was killed by crusaders, her mother, to survive, made a bargain with Tyrion Lannister. As a result, the magi gained the land and an administrator, and the Al'Jimni family gained a haven against both the reconquista and the occasionnal noble who'd have liked to prey on a lonely widow.
As a result, Raoudha received the education that the hazards of war would have denied her otherwise, her mother grooming her to become the future autocrat of the covenant. She soon became a valuable asset, as her uncanny intuition allowed her to make the right choice when none seemed evident, thus helping out her mother a great deal.
At 39 of age, she is barely starting to age, but is still a beautiful, and was courted by many men. Sadly, her husband died at Las Navas de Tolosa, leaving her alone.
Despite her Islamic background, she is (mostly) accepted by the various factions, in no small part due to her cheerful composure and the kindness she shows everyone, be it christian, jew or muslim: Whatever the person, Raoudha doesn't make any difference, and helps everyone to the best of her ability. Maybe more than her competence, this is what make her the right steward for Phoenix.
