Preparing our history for the East Kingdom 50th Anniversary / Préparation de notre histoire pour le 50ième anniversaire du Royaume de l’Est

Greetings to the populace of the East Kingdom,

In June of 2018 we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary as the second kingdom of the SCA. As we prepared for the SCA 50th last year, we learned quickly that although we’re amazing at exploring and maintaining the history of other periods and people, we’ve not been completely successful in documenting our own. The East is not alone in this. Throughout the event I had variations of the same conversations with people from every kingdom there. Gaps in our story. Pages, photos, and names, simply missing.

Presently we’re in the very early days of planning for the 2018 event. With that in mind I’m reaching out and asking everyone to begin the process of preparing and organizing, bringing up to date, or constructing your areas, and your own history within the SCA.

If you are an area’s Historian that’s great! Please send me your contact information. If your area does not have a Historian, I ask that you please select someone to represent your area, and again send me their information.

Along with this I also ask for everyone to please update your EK Wiki pages. If you don’t have a page, please consider creating one. We used the Wiki extensively last year, and it’s a great way to get to know your fellow populace members. If you’re not familiar with the EK Wiki, it can be found at wiki.eastkingdom.org. We do ask however, although the nature of Wiki is anyone can work on anyone else’s page, please refrain from doing so without permission. When in doubt please reach out to Master Michel, the web minister in charge of the Wiki for assistance or guidance. He can be reached by e-mail.

I’m very excited about continuing the process of discovering the East Kingdom through our society’s history. 50 years is a long time and I know, because I’ve been told again and again, that there are many hidden treasures in garages, attics, basements, and closets. Not to mention the stuff on open display on walls, tables, and bookcases. If you have not but have been meaning to, now is a great time to start documenting it. Just think of the stories you’ll be able to share.

Thank you all so much. I look forward to seeing what the Hall of History will become. I’ll keep you posted as things move forward.

Yours in service,

Lady Magdelena Camaninte

East Kingdom Historian

Salutations à la population du Royaume de l’Est,

En juin 2018, nous célébrerons notre cinquantième anniversaire comme second Royaume de la SCA. Comme nous nous préparions pour le cinquantième anniversaire de la SCA l’an passé, nous avons rapidement réalisé que bien que nous soyons excellents pour explorer et maintenir l’histoire d’autres périodes et personnes, nos efforts n’ont pas été complètement fructueux pour documenter la nôtre. L’Est n’est pas seul dans cette situation. Au travers de cet événement, j’ai eu des conversations similaires avec des gens provenant de tous les autres royaumes. Des trous dans notre histoire. Des pages, photos, noms, simplement manquants.

Présentement, nous sommes dans les toutes premières étapes de planification pour l’événement en 2018. En gardant ceci en tête, je cherche dès maintenant à rejoindre toutes les personnes détenant des informations afin de commencer le processus de préparer et d’organiser, de mettre à jour, ou de construire vos propres sections, et votre propre histoire dans la SCA.

Si vous êtes l’Historien d’un groupe, c’est une excellente nouvelle ! S’il-vous-plaît, veuillez envoyer vos informations de contact à Historian@eastkingdom.org. Si votre région n’a pas d’Historien, je vous demanderais de bien vouloir soumettre la candidature d’une personne afin de représenter votre région, et encore, de bien vouloir soumettre leurs informations.

De plus, j’aimerais demander à tous de bien vouloir mettre à jour vos pages Wiki du Royaume de l’Est. Si vous n’avez pas de page, considérez en créer une. Nous avons utilisé le Wiki de manière importante l’an passé, et c’est une excellente manière de mieux connaître les autres membres de la population. Si vous n’êtes pas familiers avec le Wiki du Royaume de l’Est, vous pouvez le consulter au Wiki.eastkingdom.org. Nous vous demandons cependant, même si la nature d’un Wiki est que tout le monde peut faire des altérations sur les pages de tout le monde, de ne pas effectuer de changements sans permission. Si vous avez un doute à ce sujet, contactez Maître Michel, le ministre web en charge du Wiki pour un conseil ou de l’assistance. Il est possible de le rejoindre à : Mike@knauer.org.

Je suis très enthousiaste de continuer le processus de découverte du Royaume de l’Est au travers de l’histoire de notre Société. 50 ans est une longue période, et je sais, parce qu’on me l’a sans cesse répété, qu’il y a plusieurs trésors cachés dans des garages, greniers, sous-sols et armoires, sans mentionner tous les items exposés sur les murs, tables et bibliothèques.
Si vous aviez l’intention de commencer à documenter, mais que vous n’avez pas commencé, maintenant est le moment parfait pour ce faire. Pensez seulement aux histoires que vous serez capables de partager.

Merci à vous tous, j’attends avec impatience de voir ce que le Hall de l’histoire deviendra. Je vous tiendrai informé à mesure que les choses avanceront.

En Service, Dame Magdelena Camaninte,
Historienne du Royaume de l’Est

Court Report: Blackstone Raids XXVI, A.S. 51

AEthelmearc Gazette - Tue, 2017-05-16 15:15

From the Scrolls of the Reign of Timothy and  Gabrielle, King and Queen of Æthelmearc, as recorded by Dame Kateryna ty Isaf, Jewel of Æthelmearc Herald with the assistance of THL Kathryn McLuing, Millrind Herald at Blackstone Raids in the Barony of Blackstone Mountain on April 29, Anno Societatis LI. The Court of Their Majesties, Timothy and Gabrielle was opened.

Their Majesties called forth Tarryn of Port Oasis.  Having been observant of the handiwork of this fine lady in leather and cloth gracing the various members of her shire, Their Majesties inducted her into the Order of the Sycamore and further awarded her Arms.  The scroll was limned by Lady Elspeth of Wurmwald and calligraphed by Baroness Graidhne ni Ruaidh.

The Court was suspended.

Their Majesties’ court was resumed later in the afternoon.

Their Majesties called forth all the children present and instructed Lord Sittius to take the chest of toys and run away.  The children were instructed they may to take one toy each, beginning with the youngest child present.  A countdown was made and the children chased the toy chest bearer from the court.

Their Majesties invited King Edmund of the Midrealm before Them.  They spoke of Their appreciation for His Majesties presence and how They looked forward to the reign of His successors.  His Majesty Edmund offered gifts to Their Majesties Timothy and Gabrielle and thanked Them both for the fine day he had.

His Majesty Timothy apologized to His Guests and the assembled court for having been so thoroughly robbed of his lunch money by the fighters on this day and commented how it was clear to him that He had indeed been a poor host in this respect but He appreciated the thorough ‘whoppin’ He received from Count Cellach. Their Majesties and King Edmund exchanged hugs and His Majesty Edmund took His leave of the court.

Their Majesties gave The Baron and Baroness of Blackstone Mountain leave to hold Their Baronial Court.

Their Majesties called forth Matilda de Crepelgate and seeing and especially hearing her fine work as the Onyx Herald of the Barony of Blackstone Mountain, made her a Lady of the court and Awarded her Arms with a scroll painted and gilded by Lady Vivienne of Yardley and calligraphed by Isabella Montoya.

Their Majesties then invited Lady Sigrid Schreiber before Them.  Lady Sigrid presented Their Majesties with portraits she created of both.  Their Majesties greatly appreciated the artistry of the beautiful portraits and They thanked her for such a lovely gift.

Their Majesties called forth Guillame des Aix an Provence.  When the gentle called forth did not appear, His Grace Duke Rurik Longsword advised he had seen the man on site and rushed from the court to fetch him and bring him to Their Majesties.

Their Majesties called forth Borivoj Skala.  For his fighting enthusiasm and stamina, They were moved to make him a Lord of the court and thus Awarded him Arms with a scroll painted by Baron Caleb Reynolds and calligraphed by Maureen O’Shea.

Their Majesties called forth Gretchen McKlay.  They, having heard of her sumptuous Tudor feasts, made her a Lady of the court and Awarded her Arms.  The scroll to mark the occasion was painted by Lady Felice de Thornton and calligraphy was by Isabelle Montoya.

Their Majesties called forth Jos of St Alban and Rohesia of Whytemere.  Remarking on how both did much service for their local group They were moved to Award both Arms.  His Majesty commented on how Jos had even built his own Viking tent, stating He was quite surprised at his lack of Viking attire, but thought the clothes most impressive nonetheless.  The scroll for Lord Jos was pained by Lady Saskia Feldmeyrin and the scroll for Lady Rohesia was painted by Mistress Felicity Fluβmullnerin and calligraphed by Baroness Ekaterina Volkova.

Lord Jos and Lady Rohesia receive their AoAs. Photo by Lady Aine ny Allane.

Their Majesties called forth Lady Barbaia of Misty Highlands, who They were advised was not able to be at the event.  Having discovered that it would be unlikely They would see her during Their reign, They asked Sir Gareth Kincaid to convey the scroll to her.  In absentia, They inducted her to the Order of the Keystone for her work as Chatelaine, Webminister, and Autocrat for the Shire of Misty Highlands.  The scroll upon a leather shield was created by Mistress Juliana Delamare.

Their Majesties called forth Lord Gremian Ulfhedna.  They advised that his dedication to his fighting, most especially time spent doing pick-ups on the field moved Them to make him a member of the Order of the Golden Alce.  The scroll was limned by Lady Elspeth of Wurmwald and calligraphed by Baroness Graidhne ni Ruaidh.

Lord Guillaume’s AoA scroll by THLady Pippi Ulfsdottir and Mistress Antoinette de la Croix.

His Grace Duke Rurik having fetched Guillame, he presented THL Guillaume le Noir to Their Majesties.  His Majesty, commenting that this appeared to be the incorrect Guillame as He was certain that the gentleman brought before Him had already received this award, He nevertheless asked the Herald to read the scroll for the Award of Arms present to Guillame des Aix an Provence.  After much merriment, Their Majesties determined that Lord Guillame des Aix would likely not be in attendance of the court and requested that Lord Fiachna accept the Award on his behalf and convey the story of how it was there presented unto the newly made Lord.  The scroll was drawn and calligraphed by Mistress Antoinette de la Croix, painted by THL Phelippe Ulfsdotter.

Their Majesties called forth Lord Andreas di Rossi.  Seeing he too was not in the hall, Duke Rurik fetched him, with encouragement to obtain the correct person this time.  Once fetched, Their Majesties noting that he was a workhorse of the barony and the “One Man Army of Blackstone,” They inducted him into the Order of the Keystone with a scroll painting by Baron Caleb Reynolds and calligraphy by Isabella Montoya.

Their Majesties called forth THLord Ulrich von Schwartzburg. They inducted him into the Order of the Keystone for his work as Shire Exchequer and Knight Marshall, and his work ensuring the fighters of the Kingdom have both clothes and armor.  The scroll was the work of THLady Kathryn McLuing.

Their Majesties called forth THLady Kathryn McLuing.  Noting that her work in had been handed out in both the Baronial and Kingdom court this day as well as her work making garb for herself and Gold Key, They were moved to induct her into the Order of the Sycamore with a scroll by the hand of Mistress Maria Christina de Cordoba.

Their Majesties called forth Lord Nikoli Lupiescu.  They, having known of his work assisting with armor repair and making armor, also noted that he was a fighter of some renown beyond his skill in emergency armor.  They inducted him into the Order of the Golden Alce with a scroll drawn by Luca da Cola, painted by Lady Rignach Inghean ui Chonaill and calligraphed by Baroness Graidhne ni Ruaidh.

Their Majesties, stating a song was required, invited before them THLady Silence de Cherbourg.  Her Ladyship sang a contrefactum (filk) of a 12th century cantiga, with lyrics created by her hand with assistance from Master Michael Alewright and Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope. The piece called forth Brehyres Gwendolyn the Graceful to come before Their Majesties as she has been chosen for song and poem to sit vigil in contemplation of becoming a member of the Order of the Laurel.

Brehyres Gwendolyn was escorted to the court by Duke Rurik while the members of the Most Noble Order of the Laurel were invited to attend. Their Majesties commanded her to present herself to Them at War Practice to sit vigil and answer Their question, if she was prepared to become a member of the Order of the Laurel. Scroll by Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope.

Her Majesty then asked that THLord Deryk Archer to come forth. Her Majesty thanked him for the archery targets that She so enjoyed that day. She was also advised that Lord Deryk was aided all day in keeping records and scoring all day by Torvi fra Bergstopt of the Shire of Montevale and asked him to bring her to the court. Her Majesty named them both Her inspiration of the day and bestowed upon each a Golden Escarbuncle.

Their Majesties asked that the scribes who contributed to the works of art presented this day to the members of the populace please stand and be acknowledged for their gifts.

Duke Sven, having been moved by His Majesty losing so much lunch money, offered His Majesty a bag of coin so that He might be able to eat at least a small amount of food.

There being no further business this day, Their Majesties court was thus concluded.
