Many people are often curious about how tall their favorite character is in a show, game or TV series, especially one with mystical beings like The Witcher.
In most cases, knowing the height of a character just makes it easier to picture them when reading a book. If we’re talking about a show or game, on the other hand, figuring out how tall someone is, gives you some interesting trivia and more insight on the character traits.
In The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia is 198 cm or 6’6”. Lambert, one of Vesemir trainees, is 180 cm or 5’11. Ciri is 175 cm or 5’9”, while Yennefer’s height has never been clearly stated in the books, games or series. She is known to be petite in the books.
Here is a chart with the height of the main characters in The Witcher.
|Character||Height in feet||Height in cm|
|Sigismund Dijkstra||7’0”||213 cm|
|Triss Merigold||5’6”||168 cm|
How Tall Is Geralt of Rivia?
Geralt is certainly the main character in The Witcher universe. While he has a considerable height, the exact number is never clearly written in any of the books. He is said to be taller than Ciri, which is the only one to have her height stated in the books as 175 cm or 5’9”.
By comparing Geralt to Ciri, we can come to the conclusion that Geralt is in the range of 198 cm, or 6’6”. Henry Caville who is currently portraying Geralt in the Netflix version of The Witcher is 6’1, or 186 cm.
How Tall Is Lambert?
Lambert trained at the Wolf School with Vesemir and he is about 5’11” or 180 cm. The actor playing Lambert in the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher, Paul Bullion, is quite tall at 6’3” or 191 cm.
How Tall Is Ciri?
Ciri’s height is the only one mentioned in the books, in the Tower is Swallow. She is 175 cm or 5’9” tall.
The actress portraying Ciri of Cintra in the Netflix series is Freya Allen. The 20-year-old British actress that played Geralt’s adoptive daughter is 5’5” or 165 cm tall, so slightly shorter than her character in the books.
How Tall Is Yennefer?
Yennefer is known to be small or petite both in the books and games even though in the games she does wear high heels that make her appear taller.
Yennefer’s exact height has never been mentioned. As most female characters in The Witcher universe though, she is thought to be shorter than Ciri so around 168 cm or 5’6”.
Anya Charlotte that plays Yennefer in the show is in fact 168 cm or 5’6” tall. Taller than the actress that plays Ciri in the same tv show.
How Tall Is Sigismund Dijkstra?
Thanks to the books and games we do know that Sigismund Dijkstra, the head of Redanian Intelligence, is very tall, almost 7 feet (213 cm).
Finding a human being that tall is close to impossible, which is probably why the actor playing this role, Scottish Graham McTavish, is 6’2” or 188 cm. This is still an imposing height.
How Tall Is Triss Merigold?
Triss Merigold of Maribor, the famous sorceress, is 5’6” or 168 cm tall. The actress that plays Triss in the Netflix series, Anna Shaffer, is exactly this height.
How Tall Is Jaskier?
Jaskier’s height is never revealed neither in the books nor in the Netflix show or games. The actor that played this character in the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher, Joey Batey, is 5’9” or 175 cm.
How Tall Are The Main Aen Elle Elves?
Ge’els is one of the elves of the Aen Elle, and as such he is thought to be quite tall. He is about a head taller than Geralt. This would make him roughly 220 cm or 7’2”.
Avallac’h is an Aen Elle elf so you’d expect him to be quite tall. Because of the curse that Yennefer broke however, he is much shorter than other elves. He is roughly 185 cm or 6’1”.
Another reason why Avallac’h is shorter is probably that he is a mage instead of a warrior.
How Tall Is Regis?
Regis or Emiel Regis Rohellec Terzieff-Godefroy is the famous vampire of The Witcher. He is just a little bit shorter than Geralt. Regis is assumed to be 185 cm or 6’1”.
How Tall Is Vesemir?
Vesemir, the oldest Witcher alive, is about 6 feet tall or 183 cm according to the games or books. He has a respectable and imposing stature.
The Danish actor, Kim Bodnia, however, is a little shorter than the character he portrays, at 178 cm or 5’10”.
All in all, it seems like the elves are the tallest beings of The Witcher universe, followed by Witchers themselves with Geralt in the lead, then vampires and mages.
While men are quite tall, the women in The Witcher are also of a generous height and slightly above the average.
