Crowns of Four Kingdoms Sign Estrella War XXIV Treaty

Duchess Katerina O'Callaghan, Acting Kingdom Media Officer for the Kingdom of Atenveldt, has announced that the four principal kingdoms involved in the Estrella War XXIV have signed the Estrella War Treaty.


The four Principal Kingdoms for the next Estrella War XXIV (Feb 12-18, 2008) today published the Estrella War Treaty negotiated at a meeting held by the Crowns and Heirs of the Kingdoms of Atenveldt, Caid, Outlands and Artemisia on September 29, 2007. The guidelines in the treaty govern the medieval activities held at the Estrella War, including heavy combat scenarios, rapier scenarios, target archery shoots, and the Estrella War Arts and Sciences Competition.

The Estrella War Treaty is negotiated annually to outline how the medieval war between two "Allied Realms" will be conducted, and how each Principal Kingdom can win the Right for their Populace to display one or more of four Estrella War XXIV Victory Pennants. Announcements in this year's Treaty include the following:

  • Allied Realm I in the conflict shall be the Kingdom of Atenveldt and the Kingdom of Caid and their allies. Allied Realm II shall be the Kingdom of the Outlands and the Kingdom of Artemisia and their allies.

  • The rules and guidelines a Principal Kingdom must use to win the Right for their Populace to display an Estrella War XXIV Armored Combat Victory Pennant, an Estrella War XXIV Arts & Sciences Victory Pennant, an Estrella War XXIV Rapier Victory Pennant, or an Estrella War XXIV Archery Victory Pennant are outlined in the Treaty published today.

  • The dates, times, locations, setup and objectives for the heavy combat scenarios, rapier scenarios, and target archery shoots are explained. For example, the treaty states when and where the heavy combat and rapier scenarios begin each day, when the target archery competition range opens each day, and how each scenarios/archery shoot is scored.

  • The date, time, location, and judging criteria used in the Estrella War Arts & Sciences Competition are outlined.
