Street Bransels in Drachenwald

East Kingdom Gazette - Wed, 2015-05-06 09:15

Musicians play light music in the Lower Hall for the Meet and Greet Wednesday night

The Gazette thanks Lady Aaradyn Ghyoot for this account and the accompanying photos.

Known World Dance Symposium -­ billed as a “dry name for an awesome event” – this was more exciting a time than even our hosts could have imagined! Deeply entrenched in the front lines, bransling in the streets was just one of the many things this Eastern reporter witnessed at the symposium. For, when a fire alarm goes off during classes, what else are we do to but take to the streets? An event, a demo… at that point, none could tell. A drink here, a drink there, the tavern was well stocked with local brews, tasty sodas and much needed waters, and those stores were well depleted daily by hordes of thirsty dancers. From the first moments of the meet and greet to the last moments of clean up, the Altes Rathaus was filled with music and dance day and night.

The opening night in the lower hall, where musicians gave us hints at the melodies we would soon tread the stones too, saw attendees in garb and in mundanes alike, swaying to the music that echoed wonderfully off the heraldic pennants and stone walls. We met and greeted each other, finding common languages and learning a little of foreign tongues. The talking and jam sessions lasted late into the night, and the last hangers on were shooed out of the hall at nearly the stroke of midnight. Out into the empty, quiet streets we went, and on toward waiting beds.

Thursday opened with much fanfare, or at least much coffee, and classes started quickly and with great attendance. The ladies at gate were efficient and ever so kind, assisting all and tirelessly answering questions from the passers by whose interest in the old building and the oddly dressed gentles entering it drew them close all day. The lower hall rung bright with the sounds of English Country Dance, and the upper Hall was filled with the swishing feet of Italian dances. The kitchen, ever bustling, presented the dancers with meals all day, filling all with delectable meals of period origin. This humble reporter was gifted with the head cook’s own copy of the recipe book, a wonderful gift from a wonderful chef! Each night closed with a Ball, and Thursdays saw the Gentlemen on one side and the Ladies on the other, with a Caroso Ball our entertainment. It gave excellent opportunity for discussion, and exquisite opportunity for new dance partners!

Friday dawned, and sleepy dancers (as the nightly dancing didn’t end till almost 1am!) again filled the halls with echoes of called steps and beautiful music. The cooks again delighted the populace with tasty meals… and were tragically interrupted by the howling of mechanical alarms as we were forced out of the building and into the streets. So palpable was our pain and disappointment of having been robbed of dance time in the beautiful halls, that bransles broke out in the street as dancers refused to let something so modern as a fire alarm stop them. The musicians played on, ringed protectively in hordes of dancers as onlookers drew out cameras to document the goings on that covered the fair streets of the medieval city. The dancing continued, even as the blaring sirens and flashing

lights of the fire department arrived, and making way for the monstrous vehicles, the dancers closed ranks again and continued, wasting no time of their dancing event simply standing and waiting to be allowed back in. Our own Duchess Thyra joined their dancing, smiling bright to keep spirits up. So long was our delay that the staff, having figured some way back in momentarily, returned to the streets with meat pasties and mushroom pies, and pitchers of water to

keep the dancers going. All was met with much applauding, and more dancing. At long last, the bransles waned and the building was declared safe, and the event continued as well all moved inside again, and back onto the carefully planned schedule. No ill effects were felt from the kitchen, and all the foods were well prepared and presented. The Ball that night went late again, as is their way, and the dancers were up to the end… Duchess Thyra being among the last to leave the grand Upper Hall in the wee hours of the night.

Saturday came, and with it a surge of new dancers! The halls, full before, were now packed with the happy faces of dancers young and old. The staff, in their grace, took this in stride and everything continued to run beautifully. The kitchen, having already filled all to the brim with excellent fare, produced even more wonderful dishes for the waiting masses. The classes were well attended again as everyone prepared for the Grand Ball that night. Court for their most generous Highnesses of the Kingdom of Drachenwald and their gracious Excellencies of the Barony of Knights Crossing was also held as graceful dancers performed for them in honor of the event. Then, in a hall decorated for the occasion with long tables in white linen and colors announcing brightly the host Kingdom (a more amazing feast hall this reporter has never seen ­ the ambiance was perfect and I was, for a moment, transported to another time completely) a grand feast was held for all assembled. The dishes presented were full of flavor and dressed beautifully, and the kitchen amazed us all. Then tragedy and disaster struck again! Our feast was again disrupted by the infernal screams of mechanical alarms, and flashing lights as

though from hell itself rained down on our fair scene! Good gentles all, adorned in their finest for the feasting and coming Ball, fled the hall in a riot of color, spilling out again into the streets of Miltenberg with goblet and napkin in hand. Finding ourselves again in the street, we did what all dancers do when evicted suddenly from such gorgeous surroundings ­ we bransled. Much laughter did come from the populace as we danced in the streets for our smiling Royalty and Baronage, and again we made room as the rushing vehicles came to see to our safety. It was declared fine, and we returned to the feast, only the dessert suffering slightly for the delay ­ we had a lovely compote and cookies instead of milk pies. The Grand Ball was as full and amazing as it sounds, and as an added treat we were entertained through dance by Countess Judith of Northumbria and her merry troupe, recreating for us scenes from mythos.

Countess Judith presented a series of myths in dance and song during the Grand Ball

Sunday dawned and the last of us gathered again in mundanes, to tear down the event and clean those great halls. Carrying stacks of chairs and moving piles of food we hand many hands to help carry the SCA out of the Altes Rathaus and leave those halls as they were before. Slowly the staff departed for their own lands, and this reporter, after many hugs, wandered off as well, back into the warm light of the afternoon and the sounds of a modern medieval city.

Novice Rapier Tourney Added to EK Novice Day

East Kingdom Gazette - Tue, 2015-05-05 17:45

Last year we ran an amazing event for novice heavy fighters.  It was held a little later in July, but offered new fighters a last weekend to authorize. It was Very Good Day ™. It was something I was very proud to be a part of. This year we are opening it up to more activities including, rapier and A&S.  An entire day of activities and competition for those people with 2< years of experience in their disciplines. I am running Rapier.

So what does this mean for you?

We will be running a tournament for novice rapier fighters. It will in the format of the type tourney we run for KQ Rapier Championship. You need to have less than 2 years experience in rapier. This means any heavy cross overs that are just getting into rapier, this day is for you too.  If you are interested in understanding what rapier is all about, experienced fighters will be on hand to answer your questions about rules, gear and game play.

We will be doing all the authorizations. Novices get first run of the marshals, but there will be folks on hand to run secondaries or reauths as well. It will be the last day to get authorized before Pennsic. If you are interested in helping marshal, shoot me an email.  MITs this is a great event to get more experience in authorizations and running/marshaling tournaments. alesone.gray @ gmail.

We are growing our future. Come be a part of it.

Polling Recommendations for Golden Lance Sought

East Kingdom Gazette - Tue, 2015-05-05 17:15

Their serene Majesties, Edward and Thyra passed the Order of the Golden Lance at their last curia at Mudthaw. The Golden Lance will be an order of high merit for those who have excelled in the Equestrian Arts. As a former rider myself, we are excited to bring this new level of recognition to our Eastern riders.

We will accept recommendations for the Premiers of this new order until June 1st. It is our intent to poll all authorized riders for the selection of the first members of this new order. As there is no formal polling system set up, we will use a more informal method. If you are an authorized rider and wish to participate in this polling, please ensure the Kingdom Equestrian Marshall, Baroness Doucette de Verdun has an up to date email address.

In Service to the East,
King Omega and Queen Etheldreda

Aside or Astride?

AEthelmearc Gazette - Tue, 2015-05-05 16:40

The debate goes on – Did women in period ride astride? Or did they ride aside? The answer, unequivocally, is yes. Sort of. Here’s why:

Wife of Bath from the Ellesmere manuscript of the Canterbury Tales, c. 1410.

In some illustrations, such as Chaucer’s The Wife of Bath, the woman is shown riding astride. For practicality’s sake, this was likely the most common way for a woman to ride. Her skirts, long and full as they were, would drape gracefully down to cover her legs, thereby protecting her modesty. She was seated firmly in the saddle, facing forward, and fully capable of controlling her mount. It is also likely that women rode astride for centuries, although it may not have been considered entirely proper or genteel.

Many other period illustrations show women sitting aside, or sideways on the horse, with both legs to one side. This is, of course, technically, riding sidesaddle, since you are sitting sideways on the saddle. But the period definition of sidesaddle does not match today’s definition of sidesaddle. Here is where the “sort of”, above, comes into play.

Anne of Bohemia is generally thought to be the person who brought the period version of sidesaddle to England. This meant that instead of sitting the horse with a leg on each side, women sat sideways, on a pad, or in a man’s saddle, or, more usually, on the horse’s croup (rump) behind a man, with both feet hanging to one side. Sitting sideways behind a man is known as riding pillion. Somewhere along the way, a woman who was riding by herself, sideways in the saddle, may have realized that it would be a bit more comfortable if she put her foot in the stirrup.

Sidesaddle – Hermes Museum

Thus came the invention of the planchette (plank). The planchette was a board, suspended from straps, on which a lady sitting sidesaddle could rest her feet.

The period sidesaddle also began to be fitted with a side rail, running along the off side of the saddle seat to give a bit of security. There is also evidence of a “seat belt” type of strap, fastening over the thighs to help keep her in the saddle.

A woman using this type of saddle was more or less sitting in a moving chair, facing to the side of her horse. If she was not being led by a groom, she had to twist her upper body around to face forward so that she could control her horse properly. There was also a very real danger of the rider toppling over backwards if the horse acted up or took a misstep.

Catherine de Medici, (1519-1589), being an avid rider, and, apparently, none too happy with the restrictions that the period sidesaddle placed on her, is popularly credited with being the first woman to drape one of her legs over the pommel (or horn) of a man’s saddle, thereby giving herself something to grip for balance, as well as the ability to face forward and control her own horse properly – the early beginning of what we think of today as a sidesaddle rider.

Unfortunately, de Medici’s concept does not appear to have caught on with the ladies for quite some time, as the “chair” saddle with planchette and back rail seems to have endured until well into the 1700’s. It was, in fact, used in certain areas much later than that.

Queen Victoria’s sidesaddle – Museum of Leathercraft

The sidesaddle continued to evolve, with the center pommel of the man’s saddle eventually migrating to one side of the saddle, usually, though not always, the left side, and a second pommel being added to the other side of the saddle – apparently to give the thigh something to rest against.

A woman in this type of saddle could walk, trot, and canter a well-trained horse safely, and ride long distances in relative comfort and security.

In the late 18th century, there was a third pommel or horn added – the leaping head (or leaping horn). This was below the primary horn, and gave much better “purchase” or grip, since the leg which was crossed in front of the rider could grip around the main horn, and the thigh of the other leg could be pressed up into the leaping head. The pommel on the off side of the saddle, never particularly useful in the first place, began to disappear sometime around the early 1900’s. And the true sidesaddle rider was born – a woman who could ride a less than manageable horse, could gallop and leap fences with her gentleman companions and be safe, stylish, and modest doing so.

Sidesaddles continued to evolve up into the mid 20th century, with the seat becoming flat, rather than dipped, and the pommels becoming wider and flatter than the older saddles.

The pictures below are of a sidesaddle that I built several years ago, using a purchased, 1930’s tree.

Riding a modern sidesaddle is every bit as safe as riding an astride saddle, and, in some instances, even safer. If the saddle fits the rider and the horse properly, it is also quite comfortable, and very elegant.

So, to say that a woman in period was riding sidesaddle would be somewhat inaccurate. She was riding sideways in the saddle, but the true sidesaddle seat, wherein the rider is facing forward, with one leg hooked over a pommel or horn in front of her, did not really evolve until much later.

Lake Augusta Renaissance Festival -Demo

AEthelmearc Gazette - Tue, 2015-05-05 12:25

Greetings Good Gentles One and All,

Preparations are busily underway for the Second Annual Lake Augusta Renaissance Festival. Fear not, for though the word “Renaissance” may cause pause, last year, this demo successfully introduced approximately 600 of the general public to our dream. Two hundred Scadians from all over the Known World came to the banks of the Susquehanna River to play last year and we trust such will occur again this year. Their Sylvan Majesties Timothy and Gabrielle will be in attendance, making this a Royal Progress. You won’t want to be anywhere else come the 20th of June except in the Heart of Æthelmearc – the Shire of Abhainn Ciach Ghlais.

For additional information go to the Kingdom website for the event which can be found here or like us on Facebook – Lake Augusta Renaissance Festival.

Volunteer Position Available: Æthelmearc College of Heralds Exchequer

AEthelmearc Gazette - Mon, 2015-05-04 07:00

Unto the Kingdom, greetings from Kameshima Silver Buccle! It takes a lot of work to keep a College of Heralds running, and not all of it requires heraldic knowledge! Dame Elsbeth and Master Alaric have served the Æthelmearc College of Heralds as College Exchequer and Deputy College Exchequer for many years, and now it is time for them to retire with our thanks and take some much-deserved rest on their estates. However, the College needs an Exchequer to keep running. That’s where you — yes, YOU — can volunteer to help! Have you been interested in learning the ways of the exchequer, but find the idea of serving in that capacity for your local group too daunting? The College provides an excellent introduction to this job, with minimal paperwork and minimal checks to write. Dame Elsbeth and Master Alaric have thoughtfully provided this description of the duties of the position and the approximate time needed:

  • Serve as a member of the financial committee for the College of Heralds.
  • Deposit funds for heraldic submissions in a timely manner (1 to 2 deposits / month)
  • Write reimbursement checks for allowable College of Heralds expenses in a timely manner (1 to 2 checks / month).
  • Complete four financial reports a year, three electronic, one paper (2 to 3 hours a quarter).
  • Be a signatory on the College of Heralds bank account.

If you are interested in this position, or even just in hearing more about the position and what it requires, please contact me via email.

In Honor and Service,

Kameshima Zentarō Umakai 高貴国境の王国の治部卿 Silver Buccle Principal Herald, Kingdom of Æthelmearc
