Myriam Copan was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in the year 754 NE, and held the position until her death in 797 NE, She was Feragaine Saralman's successor and Zeranda Tyrim's predecessor (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 24).
Myriam is remembered as being a strong Amyrlin (TPoD, Ch. 15).
"There had been Amyrlins who reigned in strength, Amyrlins who managed an even balance with the Hall, and Amyrlins who had had as little power as she, or less upon rare occasions, well-hidden in the secret histories of the White Tower. Several had frittered away power and influence, falling from strength to weakness, but in over three thousand years, precious few had managed to move in the other direction. Egwene very much wished she knew how Myriam Copan and the rest of that bare handful had managed. If anyone had ever thought to write that down, the pages were long lost." (Egwene; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 15).
