Charles of Mercury
Charles of Mercury and Jean de la Grand' Anse
Allyn O'Dubhda noted that this was at the knighting of both gentlemen, but this is not possible as the records
state that Charles was Knighted at Autumn Crown, AS V (1970), while Jean de la Grand 'Anse was knighted
at March Crown, AS IV (1969).
"Both men were in my household, Toad Hall. This photo was taken when both men were brought before the crown;
They were the final two fighters at that Crown tournament. Since Jean was already a knight, he said he did
not want to fight an unbelted fighter in the final round of a crown tournament and asked that Charles be knighted
before the final fight continue. Charles was crowned and the fight continues. Jean won. Edwin Berserk Caradoc
ap Cador objected strongly to Charles’s knighting and a court of chivalry was called over which King Jean presided.
The outcome of the court was that Charles should keep his Knighthood. " -- Geraldine of Toad Hall
