The Forty-first Year

Coronet/Investiture -- Principality of Oertha

July 14-16, 2006 (AS XLI)

Eagle River, AK

From The Page (July, 2006):

Good gentles, summer will be upon us soon; and thus Prince Dietrich and Princess Rosalyn welcome you to witness the selection and investiture of Their Heirs. Their Highnesses have chosen "The Crusades in the Levant" as the theme of this Coronet. The Crusades in the Levant involved most of the Christian nations bordering the northern coastline of the Mediterranean. These regions changed dramatically with various small "kingdoms" emerging and then being overtaken in the eastern part of the Mediterranean, as Muslims societies pushed into Anatolia (modern Turkey) and confronted the Byzantine Empire.

Mistress Anne will be sponsoring an A&S Display on Saturday in the Galleries from 9am to 4pm. Your entries will be judged by their Highnesses at Mistress Anne's A&S Display on Sunday morning before court. The contests are:
Best European Garb, Lord or Lady, influenced by the Crusades
Crusades Arts & Sciences with documentation
Bardic contest will be during Saturday evening feast
Best Middle Eastern (belly dancing) Dance
Prince's Whim: Dragons in any mode
Princess's Whim: Your Best Work
