The First Crown Used At An SCA Event

Henrik's Crown
This iron crown was the first crown ever used at an SCA event as the symbol of the King. It was designed by Fulk de Wyvern and created by Henrik of Havn. Henrik says this about the crown: "... it is my personal crown and no other person has worn it at court except Fulk who wore it before I was crowned with it at the March 1967 Tourney. Yes, they [The "Ancient and Honorables"] were the first Kingdom owned crowns, but I continued to be crowned exclusively with my own Crown during succeeding reigns. The procedure was, I would approach the King, he would remove the copper Crown from his head and place it on a cushion or some such held by an appropriate person – Kingdom Herald usually and then my crown bearer would proffer my crown on a cushion and the departing monarch would pick up my crown and crown me.” -- Henrik of Havn, from the Annotated History of the West
