Unto the populace of the Kingdom of Atlantia, does Cian Triton,
Principal Herald, send greetings!
Here follows the court report of the Coronation of Amos and Kara, held
in the Shire of Border Vale Keep on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
The Shire of Border Vale Keep decided to show the Kingdom that they are
more than a speed bump in the road should the Kingdom Of Meridies decide
to invade, and came together to put on an amazing event for Coronation.
Though the weather was hot and muggy, the staff did an amazing job, and
those in attendance had a wonderful time, especially when they got to
sit inside in the Air Conditioning.
At 10:00 in the morning, Their Majesties Cuan and Signy, King and Queen
of Atlantia, did process into court, followed by Their landed Barons and
Baronesses who were in attendance. Special note should be made of Their
Excellencies of Bright Hills, Ponte Alto, and Lochmere who travelled a
great distance to be there for Coronation.
Their Majesties did bid the populace to be seated, and the final court
of Cuan and Signy was opened. After a few words of welcome, They did
have several people in succession called forth to receive awards, but
unfortunately those individuals were not present, and so the scrolls
were passed on to each individuals Baronage to deliver later. Those
awards will be reported at a later date, once the recipients have
Baroness Aldis Svansdottir was summonedd from the great hall, and was
awarded a Fountain for her acts of service.
The herald then called for Baroness Edan Lowery, Viscountess Iskerder
Gulkean, and Master Tristan Alexander. A voice from behind the thrones
was heard to say “Oops, Your Majesty, You missed one” as Mistress Tannis
the Shenanigator handed a card to Her Majesty and called for the herald,
Lord Cian, to also come forward. Her Majesty thanked Baroness Edan and
Lord Cian for their service to Her during Her reign, and also spoke of
the service of Viscountess Iskerdr and Master Tristan, who were not
present, and She presented each of them with an Undine.
2 more individuals were called into court to receive an award, but
unfortunately were also not in attendance. Their Baron and Baroness
will ambush them at a later event.
Mistress Ealdthryth of Humberstone, Dame Morwenna Trevethan, and Lord
Naran Namuchi were summoned into Court, though Dame Morwenna was the
only one present. Mistress Ealdthryth received a Fountain for her work
as Clerk of the OP, and the hard work she has done to put in all 500+
awards that Their Majesties gave during Their reign. Dame Morwenna and
Lord Naran each received a Fountain in appreciation for the massive
number of kumihimo cords that they made for award medallions.
Grafin Adelhait Fuchs, Count Christoph Krieger, Lord William of
Windmasters Hill, and Lord Bumi Fong were called forth, and thanked by
Her Majesty for the help and support they gave Her. She awarded them
each an Undine, and released those who were Her champions from Her service.
The Triton Herald asked for permission to come before Their Majesties
with some business. He spoke of the joys of being the court herald, but
also some of what was involved, prep-wise both before and after court
occurred. Triton wished to call attention to Mistress Tannis of
Tir-Y-Don, who served as Royal Secretary for Their Majesties, and Dame
Rosalind Delamere, who served as Head Retainer. Though Triton was
unable to give any awards to these two ladies, he was able to publicly
thank them for all of the work they did which made his job that much
easier. Mistress Tannis and Dame Rosalind are true examples of what it
means to be Atlantian, and Triton is proud to call both of them his friend.
As Triton moved back to his spot behind the thrones, Her Majesty echoed
Triton’s comments about these two ladies, and since She was able to give
awards, Queen Signy awarded each of them Her Undine.
Mistress Tannis then spoke of Dame Rosalind’s service to both Crown and
Kingdom, and specifically on her virtue of Diligence. She then asked
Count Christoph if he had anything to say. Those that know His
Excellency know that the answer was definitely ‘yes’, as Count Christoph
spoke eloquently on Dame Rosalind’s Abstinance. Master Callistus Gill
then came forward to speak of Dame Rosalind’s Generousity. Mistress
Claire do Crecy stepped forward to speak of Chastity, and Duchess Luned
read the words of Master Raphael de la Rosa’s take on Dame Rosalind’s
Humility. Duke Anton came forth to speak of a trait that all who know
Dame Rosalind know that she has, Kindness. And finally, having waited
patiently to the end, Grafin Adelhait Fuchs came forward to speak of
Their Majesties asked if there was an adornment for this lady, and a
voice from the back of the court shouted “Yes, there is!”, and the tears
began to flow as Master Gaston came forward. Master Gaston is Dame
Rosalind’s husband, whom she thought was on the other side of the
country. There were few, if any, dry eyes in court at this touching
Dame Rosalind Delamere was then inducted into the Order of the Pelican,
an Order to which she truly belongs. The cheers were deafening!
Following this last piece of business, Their Majesties had the Kingdom
Seneschal and the Kingdom Chronicler called in to take possession of the
Crowns of Atlantia, then Duke Cuan swept Lady Signy up into his arms,
and carried her out of court.
As the Kingdom cannot have empty thrones, the herald called for Prince
Amos and Princess Kara, heirs to the throne, to come forward and take
Their rightful place. As his Highness sang a beautiful song, Their
Highnesses and Their retinue came forward into court, where Amos placed
the crown upon his head, and then, as King of Atlantia, he placed the
other crown upon the brow of his lady, making Kara Queen of Atlantia.
A few words of thanks were spoken by Their Majesties, then the Landed
Baronage in attendance were called forth to swear fealty upon the Sword
of State. The Great Officers of State were then summoned forward to
swear their fealty to the new Monarchs of Atlantia.
Their Majesties had but one piece of business to conduct, which was to
call Lady Signy Heri into court, where she was made a Countess and a
Lady of the Rose, and was thanked for her grace and strength during the
There being no further business, Their Majesties had Their court closed,
and commanded that the activities of the day begin.
This concludes my report of the final court of Cuan and Signy, and the
first court of Amos and Kara. These events are accurate to the best of
my knowledge, and any mistakes are mine own. Evening court report will
In service to Crown and Kingdom,
Principal Herald of Atlantia.
