Their Sylvan Majesties

King Marcus and Queen Margerite Eisenwald

Unto all of AEthelmearc do Marcus and Margerite, King and Queen of the Sylvan Throne, send greetings!

As the summer begins its turn to fall and cooler temperatures begin their embrace we are so incredibly pleased by the prowess on the field, in the classroom, and at the A&S displays that we broe witness to at Pennsic War. Your courage and valor does not go unnoticed. Shortly it will be our turn to ascend the Sylvan Throne.

We would take a minute to wholeheartedly thank Their Royal Majesties Byron & Ariella as well as Their household in Their openness, generosity, and kindness in welcoming and supporting us as Heirs. Your service to the Kingdom of Aethelmearc has been incredible and we have learned so very much from you.

We will be holding our Crown Tourney on October 1 in the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael. Letters must be in our hand by our Coronation. Given the close timing between Coronation and Crown Tournament we would appreciate letters being in our hand well before that.

We have only one additional caveat to our Crown Tourney. Consorts must be in attendance. We have many championships forthcoming.

We will select our Heavy Weapons Champion at Coronation, Archery and Thrown Weapons champions at Archers to the Wald, A&S Champion at AEthelmearc Arts & Science Champions, and Queens Rapier Championship at Agincourt.

We look forward to seeing you at our Coronation in the glorious Shire of Heronter and would remind you that we are holding our Curia the Sunday after Coronation. We would appreciate our officer’s reports in writing.

In Gloriam, AEthelmearc!
Marcus et Margerite
King and Queen of AEthelmearc

The format of Our Crown Tournament will be as follows.

We will be hosting a double elimination tournament with random draw for the first round that will be conducted after the procession.

We will pair combatants, combatant and bye, but return double byes to the hat for redraw.

Intentional use of the sides or ropes of the list as part of a strategy is unacceptable.

Finals will be best out of five, no dagger or spear, no repeat forms unless the rest are exhausted.

A reminder that all combatants and consorts must have been through gate, checked in with the MOL, and be inspected by 10:45 am.

We look forward to a day of fine competition and hope for weather similar to that of Our Coronation.

Marcus & Margerite
Sylvan King and Queen
