Ellen Hartmann is a fictional character in the Wild Cards series of books. She is notable as the wife of Gregg Hartmann, but is otherwise a minor character in Wild Cards.


Ellen Bonetstell, of the New England Bonetstells, was under no illusion about her marriage of convenience to Senator Gregg Hartmann. The Bonetstells had always dabbled in politics, and so Ellen and Gregg came to an arrangement; they would would be seen together in public and she would say the right things to further Gregg's career, while she in turn gained from her association with a rising star politician. Little did she know that she had been ensnared as one of the Puppetman's most useful and pliable puppets.


Ellen is a queen in the game of politics. She married into power and knows the right things to say. She accepts her husband's dalliances with other women just as long as he doesn't interfere in her affairs.
