Sadly, a New Court Baron was made in Ansteorra

Sadly, TRM Miguel and Conal of the Kingdom of Ansteorra made the Kingdom’s newest Court Baron in a ceremony fitting to the person receiving it, during the Kingdom’s XXV birthday party.

Friedrich von Konigsburg (Second Lieutenant Brian Smith), who was killed in action in Iraq, became the Kingdom’s newest Court Baron and holder of the Sable Shield of Ansteorra. He was loved by many and will be remembered by all for the selfless sacrifice he made, "so that we can continue to be free to live the Dream that is the SCA," in the words used by His Royal Majesty when speaking of Friedrich. He will be missed by all, remembered as one who truly lived the ideas of the Dream. Herr Arkell vom Cophus
