The Eleventh Year

An Tir Surprise Coronet Tourney -- Principality of An Tir
July 10, 1976

Held in Duval, WA. Genevra of Estolat was designated Mistress of the Lists for a day, after Duncan of Chisholm finally showed up with waivers. The procession to Prince Steingrim and Princess Hrefna started at 1:30pm. Master Theodulf of Borogrove, who was the herald on duty, was threatened into incredible accuracy by a sledge-hammer wielding member of Viscount Elrond’s household, Peitrov the Russ (a close cousin of Viscount Elrond). The Coronet Lists were held, with Theodulf of Borogrove defeating Nhille von Hakenkreuz. Anne of Caerdydd was his lady. During the lists Sir Elrond Blacksabre was called away to fireman’s duty for awhile, which caused havok in the lists scheduling. The breaks thus caused were filled by an oriental sword technique demonstration by Gilvaethe, dancing, bellydnacing, and twilsey whopping. At final court, Nhille von Hakenkreuz was presented with the Order of the Silver Rose, for coming in second, and was also given the Mucking Tall Maul. Prince Steingrim called a Privy Council meeting that evening. An unravel was held at Wakefield Castle.
