The most anticipated event of the year, The Grand Tournament, Legacy of Lions, will be held October 14-16 at the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center (1865 E. Hwy 90 Seguin, TX 78155).

To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Bjornsborg, Their Ursine Excellencies Philippe and Suzanne welcome the Knowne World to once again see the forces of the Tournament of Lions vie against the forces of the Tournee’ de Lyonesse.

Please be aware that, just as the Lions and the Lyonesse, this is a judged competition. Judges you know and those you don't will watch your fighting, your chivalry and courtesy, and your comportment. Do great deeds and you will be rewarded!

Their Excellencies require but two small items from those who would compete: a letter of intent and sponsorship by an Artisan.

The letters that most please Their Excellencies will be met with word fame and gifts. Emailed letters will be accepted, but the more creative and beautiful the letters are the better. Please note that letters of intent will not be accepted after October 12. 

We also ask that each combatant be sponsored by an Artisan, who will give a token of their art to us.  It may be as humble as homemade bread or as exalted as calligraphy or carving, but you may not sponsor yourself.  Please note that without a letter of intent and sponsorship by an artisan, a fighter may participate in this grand celebration, but will not be chosen as Pride or Defender.

Other activities include: an Arts and Sciences competition, from which the Baron and Baroness and the Daughter of Lions and the Daughter of Lyonesse will choose favorites and give out largesse and word fame.  The theme for this competition is Lions.  

To celebrate the autumnal harvest, there will be a pumpkin carving competition with fabulous prizes, a museum celebrating the history of Bjornsborg, and of course, our infamous feast planned and prepared by Mistress Seraphina Moslovska and evening tavern the Il Rubinetto Dorato will be open (donations are recommended and encouraged).  The Ansteorran Longship Company will offer their Viking Breakfast, Sunday morning (a minimum of $5 dollar donation is acceptable).

Please come and share arts, fighting, history, food, drink and song with us!
