Matriarch's Bones is an event found in the Defiled Crypts, which is within the Cemetery of the Forsaken in Act I. It is issued by Lady Dunhyld.

Matriarch's Bones

Lady Dunhyld wishes to rest in peace, and asks the player to retrieve her bones from three nearby urns. Once a player interacts with the urns, they will activate the ghost of her husband, Lord Dunhyld, and numerous skeletons which must be dispatched, before putting the Lady to rest.

You can tap all three urns at once and you don't even need to kill him to place Lady Dunhyld's bones back in her sarcophagi. Once you do Lord Dunhyld and his skeletons will disappear if you haven't killed them already.

Lord Dunhyld has a chance of dropping the legendary crafting material the Shard of Entsteig Plate needed to craft the Aughild's Authority Set.
