[EAS] Coronation of Gryffith II and Aikaterine II

Come Gentles All to celebrate the Coronation of Gryffith II and Aikaterine II! Once again the Eastern Crown passes to the heirs of our land. The Barony of Iron Bog is proud to host these glorious festivities. This joy will start on Friday September 24 and go through the weekend till Sunday 26th. There will be Court and a battle Coronation not seen in many a year here in Our Fair Kingdom.

Yes you read that correctly Court and Battle:

Prince Gryffith, having been promised the lands of Camelot by His Majesty, King Edward, has come to court with his family and retinue. Rumors of plots against His Highness abound. Whispers that the lands bequeathed to his Highness are to be given to others. Allegations that King Edward wants to humble his headstrong heir, teaching him a lesson in humility. Rumors that King Edward wants to keep the throne for Himself, and suspicions that the King plans to capture the Princess and use her as leverage against his estranged son. Will Edward remain King of the East? Will Prince Gryffith be caught in the spider web of court intrigue, or will he rebel and seize the throne? What if the Princess is captured? Will King Edward finally give up the throne to his rightful heir?

These questions can on be answered by those that witness the events themselves in person. So don't be left out of the loop, join us for a weekend of fun, mystery, action, and mayhem. Be there as Prince Gryffith lays siege to the castle of King Edward to rescue his Princess and claim the throne! The fighters of the East are encouraged to attend and take part in the timed castle battle.

By the request of Their Highnesses, heraldic display is highly encouraged on this day, in personal regalia, banners, war standards, pavilions, and kits. Bring your finest heraldic clothing, be it Kingdom, local group, household, or personal, and show your pride. Her Highness Aikaterine will be looking for the best display to recognize later in the day.
