October 6th, 2018
And it was foretold that the King of the East and his Majestic Queen, Wilhelm von Ostenbrucke and Vienna De La Mer would visit the shores of Their fair Barony of Ruantallan. And they came and held a Great Court, to honor citizens as They saw fit on the lovely October 6th day.
The first item in the Royal Court was to invite in the Baron and Baroness of Ruantallan, Guthfrith Yrlingson and Isobel de Mowbray, who did swear fealty to the King and Queen of the East, then sat and opened their own court at the whim of the King and Queen. And at the end of Their Court, they did honor newcomers to Their Court with a small token, to which the King and Queen also added their personal tokens to the populace. And the Baron and Baroness then did close their court and Their Royal Majesties did open the Great Court.
A somber piece of business was first on the docket. There was a banishment continuation to read, that does not expire until the End of Their Reign.
Their Royal Majesties then did announce the proceedings from the polling of Stonemarche, and they did announce that the next Baroness and Baroness of Stonemarche will be Mistress Deirdre and her daughter, Lady Keziah.
The first person the King and Queen wished to see, was Skaukatt. Skaukatt presented himself to Their Majesties, where the King told Skaukatt, that he had heard of his good works and fighting and how he had contributed to the overall prosperity of Ruantallan and They did bestow upon him a Silver Tyger. But the order was not complete, so They did call upon Oswald of Ruantallan to also join them on the dais and did award him a Silver Tyger as well.
The King and Queen then did call a good gentle, however, that gentle was busy working the fields of a farm, and was not in attendance, so the King and Queen then did pass Their business to the Baron and Baroness, who did swear They would carry the words of the King and Queen to the missing gentle, when that person appeared before Them.
Right in the front of the court sat a gentle who’s name was Bjorn of Distant Shore. They called upon him to enter court and mentioned his works in metal. They did thus award him an AoA and made him a Lord of Their Court.
They then did call a rapier fighter to kneel before him, by the name of Edmund Woderose. The prowess of fighters is the passion of the King and Queen and therefore they did award him an AoA and make him a Lord of Their Court.
The King and Queen gazed around the room and They set Their sights on Pypa Ravenild, whom they did call into Their Court. And they did extoll the virtues of said Pypa, for the work that she has done and They did call in the order of the Silver Wheel, unto which they made Pypa a member of the order and bestow upon her a medallion made by Syr Yesungge Altan.
And once the Silver Wheels had greeted their new member and rolled away, they did call in Mary Elizabeth Ryan, who presented herself before the court in surprise. They did speak of her long service to the arts, and her passion for making garb, and cooking. They did then call in the Order of the Maunche and induct her into that order. Her Medallion was provided by Mistress Isobel of Mowbray, Baroness of Ruantallan.
Upon the dias They did call Sir Gareth grey de Wilton, who swore fealty to the King and Queen. As he did promise to carry out the will of the Court, the queen did call forth the Royal Toy Chest and dispatched Sir Gareth with the missive to RUN. And he did Run, from all the children present! But the children out maneuvered him and brought him down like they were lions on prey!
After the Toy Chest excitement, Nesrin Bint Suleyman was called before the court. They did find Nesrin to be a worthy gentle who is fostering a new canton in the Barony. And They did make her a Lady of the court by awarding her an AoA.
And thus came to be that they called on Tyra Ulfsdottir into their court. Tyra has participated in fighting and helping newer fighters in basic combat techniques and they did Award Tyra an AoA.
The King then had the heralds call Zelina Silverfox and Manfred of Ruantallan into their court. And His Majesty did speak of the personal service of these two gentles and the commitment they had made unto him and He did award them each with a Kings order of Esteem.
The heralds then called into court Syr Yesungge Altan, and he did swear fealty to the Crown. As per the previous fealty oath, they had other plans for Yesungge, however he was confused, as the Toy Chest had already been run. The Queen then did bestow upon Syr Yesungge a Queen’s Order of Esteem for his work in metal, making and gifting of medallions.
They then called into Their Court, Thorin Ulfsson. They spoke of his prowess on the field and of his multiple weapons forms and thus They did call upon the Order of the Tygers Combattant, and did make Thorin a member of their order, medallion made by Syr Yesungge Altan.
They then did search the crowd for two gentles who, alas, were fighting marauders on the borders and were not present. So the King and Queen did ask the Baron and Baroness to carry Their words to the missing gentles and the Baron and Baroness did promise to do so.
Conn MacBranain was taken aback when the King and Queen did have his name called to make himself present. Conn had worked on the Tir Mara book herald and minister of webs and They did recognize that work and thus awarded him the order of the Silver Wheel. And when he finished greeting his companions, they were dismissed and the Court heralds did call upon a gentle who had gone to the forest to hunt down a deer to present to Their Royal Majesties and had not yet returned. And so the King and Queen asked for a gentle who would take Their words to the gentle and someone did come forward and promise to do so.
William Grant was called into court. William, from the shire of Avonmore did hear the King and Queen speak of the good works in leather and jewelry that he was doing and thus they awarded him an AoA and make him a Lord of Their court.
And they did call forward Freydis Egilsdottir, whom they knew had worked with a new canton, and worked to build it to a prosperous group. For this, they called in the order of the Silver Wheel again, and added her to the order.
And so, they brought missives from their forbearers, Kings and Queens of past and called Conn Rosendubh into their court to recognize that when their parents were on the Throne, they did NOT have a scroll for Conn. And so they brought forth a scroll for a Silver Brooch from the Investiture of the Barony Beyond the Mountain. But They were not done for Maired Drake had also not received a scroll for her Silver Brooch, and thus They did rectify that with a new scroll.
And yet they had one more missive, alas, the good gentle was out wrestling wild beasts from the sea, and was not yet returned to the shores of Ruantallan, thus the King and Queen did ask the Baron and Baroness to take Their words to the gentle when they returned from the wild blue ocean and They did say They would.
And there being no further business before the court, They did thank all for attending and wish us all well. The Royal Court of Konig Wilhelm and Konigen Vienna thus did close.
These are the events of Their Majesties Court as told to me by Gwenhwyfar Dinas Emrys, who attended to their Majesties in my absence.
Yours In Service,
Baroness Theodora Bryennissa, called Treannah, Vox Regis
