Nobody knew that Olivia Cahill was pregnant with Madeleine before the fire. Madeleine was born in 1507. When Gideon died, the two were left alone. They were exiled to the main land and lived under the name Maddie Babbitt to hide from Vespers. Even though none of her siblings knew about her, she knew all about them. Olivia taught her that:
a) Nothing is more important than reuniting the family.
b) Nothing is superior to preventing one branch from getting all the Clues.
On Card 249, Madeleine´s Book, It reads In the year of our Lord 1507, a terrible fire. It appears that she was married to a man in Britain named Robert Arden sometime before 1537. In 1537, she gave birth to Mary Shakespeare (née Arden) who later gave birth to the famous poet William Shakespeare. This is because all of Shakespeare's grandparents have been recorded except for his maternal grandmother.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Madeleine was taught from an early age to try and get the family back together, which most likely caused her much stress. Being the founder of the Madrigals, Madeleine is thought to like spying, and being secretive, much like Fiske Cahill. But like Amy, she's very worrying and shy with a little stutter in her words, that was before she was inspired to form the Madrigals. She is very brave, and is determined to keep her family together.
Madeleine is a beautiful young woman with thin, shoulder-length curly goldish-red hair, heart-shaped lips, pale skin, and brown eyes (as shown in The Black Book of Buried Secrets). She is shown also wearing a white pearl hair-loop and a thin black choker. Her dress was tan and has a bear, a dragon, two snakes, and a wolf on it, representing the 4 Cahill Branch's. In The Emperor's Code Dan thought that she looked like his mother Hope, but with hair and clothes from a different time.
The Black CircleEdit
The code in The Black Circle said "Remember Madeleine" in Russian. It also said, "Olivia had another."
The Emperor's CodeEdit
Dan found a portrait of a woman who looks just like his mother in The Emperor's Code.
She does not appear online.
- Card 249: Madeleine's Book Notably, there is no Madeleine Cahill Card. This may be because the branches were ignorant to her existence.
