Mahataha (as Faulkner spells "Mohataha" here) is the only member of the Ikkemotubbe|Issetibbeha family mentioned in this novel, where she displaces her son in the story of the Compson family. In his "Appendix" to The Sound and the Fury (1946), Faulkner identifies Ikkemotubbe as the "American king" who granted the Compson patent; in The Mansion, however, it is Mahataha who grants the property "to Quentin Compson in 1821" (367).
