The Eleventh Year

Royal Revel -- Barony of Lion's Gate
July 8, 1976

Held at the Medieval Inn, Vancouver. King Paul and Queen Carol visited Lion’s Gate after the University of Ithra session in Madrone the previous weekend and a revel was held in their honor. Gifts were presented to Their Majesties and dinner was served. Stevanna then performed a belly dance, Maras the Wanderer told stories, and Sebastian of Westering played subtle tunes. Then King Paul exchanged oaths of fealty and protection with Baron Gerhard and Baroness Amanda. King Paul made Michael the Black a Court Baron and gave an Award of Arms to Seagdha of Green Mountain.

Disclaimer: This history may have errors in it, as much of the detail is “remembered” history, or as one of the cover pages of the original type-written manuscript states “The material within is derived from the information printed in The Crown Prints and in The Page, and from the memories of the participants.” The original document was typed on onion-skin paper, with hand-written notes (often in the margins). All attempts have been made to reconcile the notes with the original document.
