In The Tempest, where is Miranda's mother?

Expert Answers

I think we can assume that Miranda's mother died before Prospero and Miranda were set adrift at sea by his evil brother, Alonso, and the usurping Duke of Milan, Antonio.  Miranda has no memories of her life in Milan (she was only three when they were put into the boat) besides faint images of the women who attended her - no mention of a mother.
