Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night in Politarchopolis seems to have been a success – great food, great company and much pageantry. We witnessed the Coronation of Ariston and Lilavati, our King and Queen, plus Eva’s elevation to the Order of the Laurel and Clara being sent to Vigil for her Pelican.

There was plenty of archery, most of it novel – with twelve Christmas-themed targets on Saturday, and the slaughter of melons and other fruits during the feast. There was also serious archery on Sunday. There were heavy and rapier tourneys – the ice ‘roses’ were a hit, given the weather. We also witnessed two Guild of Defence prizes – Lady Zanobia is now a Free Scholar, while Gaspar achieved his Journeyman sash.

Lady Giana d’Amore was made a member of the Order of the Burly Griffin for her efforts in the arts and sciences, and Don Lorccan received a Burly Griffin in recognition of his Martial activities. Lady Angela Calici and Lord Basil Faulke are our two newest armigers – despite being part of the Society for the last twenty years or so…

All in all, it was a full and fun weekend. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves at least as much as we did.

In service,
Dame Joan, Baroness Politarchopolis.
