Oerthan Summer Coronet and Investiture

description:
Good gentles summer will be upon us soon and thus Prince Dietrich and Princess Rosalyn welcome you to witness the selection of the heirs to the Coronets of Oertha. Their Highnesses have chosen "The Crusades in the Lavent" as the theme of this Coronet. The Crusades in the Lavent involved most of the Christian nations bordering the northern coastline of the Mediterranean. These regions changed dramatically with various small "kingdoms" emerging and then being overtaken in the eastern part of the Mediterranean, as Muslims societies pushed into Anatolia (modern Turkey) and confronted the Byzantine Empire.
