The new mailing address for the College is PO Box 26404, Tempe,
AZ 85282, c/o W.J. Bethancourt III. ALL correspondence is to be
sent there, as the Lord Laurel has relocated his residence,
following a separation from him Lady Wife.
We must repeat an earlier directive, to wit, that ALL cheques,
M.O.'s, &c be made out to the Lord Laurel's mundane name "W.J.
Bethancourt III", as the local bank gets very uptight nowadays
about aught else.
A circular is in preparation altering the designs of the Herald's
Regalia to more period practice. The old designs will remain in
effect, however. Suggestions are solicited.
In the matter of Patents of Arms for Countesses (Order of the
Rose) submitted by Brigantia: Let it be know that (1) a man rises
to the Throne by virtue of his fighting prowess AND the presences
of his Lady. No Lady, no Throne. Further, at least in Atenveldt,
there is precedent for an unbelted fighter reigning as King, i.e.
King Joseph I, though his Lady was granted her Patent.
And Joseph the Good was created a Count, but without a Scroll
The matter is referred to the Board.
Vesper is herewith credited with $24.00.
On the matter of Duke Cariadoc: He is a Duke. This honour is universal,
but since he has won the Crowns of both Middle and East, and both
twice, a second Duking in the East would be apropos. Also nice.
Thus, he may be styled as "Duke of the Middle and East Kingdoms".
On the matter of Liosliath of Donnelly's blazon: Why does
she find her blazon objectionable? Is it because it was called
a Cross or is it because it was called a Donnelly
Cross? The Lord Laurel mentioned this to her on her recent visit
to Atenveldt and she made no objections then.
Atenveldt (no submissions)
Middle: $ 7.00
East: $ 9.00 (plus sundry cheques to be rewritten to Laurel's
mundane name and credited later)
An application was received directly from Tjukka Kirkland of Union
Penny....and asking to register his "Family Arms". The
matter is referred to Brigantia. Sigh.
This format will be followed in the future, in order to streamline
and simplify the operations of the Office of the Lord Laurel.
The Lord Laurel extends his heartfelt thanks for the patience
and politeness of the College during the hiatus of this last year....personal
problems intervened to such an extent that, combining with his
work schedule, very little time and opportunity could be taken
for the College's business. Things are, however, settling out,
and the time is there.....hallelujah!
ALL Corporate Arms, that is, all Arms relating to Offices of the
Inc., will henceforth be submitted directly to the Lord Laurel,
with no fee, who will write the letter of intent, &c.
Are any devices, Arms and badges still outstanding from
An appeal concerning Beltran of the Mount is denied. If those
fountains are put on a roundel we will pass the damn thing, but
The new Arms for the Barony of the Angles have no Laurel Wreath,
but as they were passed originally without, then the alteration
may stand without them.
We received no forms for Gray Colin for the Axe (West).
Attached is an article approved for publication in TI by Dawyd
Aspara Suomainen: "A Bibliography for Heraldry".
Attached is a letter of comment on Herald's Regalia from Sarkanyi
Gero. It is unofficial, and is included solely to
give you a basis for comment on alteration of the current Herald's
Regalia to more Period practice. Thoughts on Ladie's Regalia would
also be appreciated.
On the matter of the Court(s) of Chivalry convened in all Kingdoms
concerning the proposals advanced by H.G. Arthur of Lokehaven
and Sir William of the Shire: No reports have been received from
East, Middle, or West, and a fragmentary report has been received
from Atenveldt, being generally unfavorable (as near as the report
could be deciphered) The matter is dropped.
On the matter of the Query issued by the Lord Laurel to all Kingdom
Newsletters asking for opinions and evidence of Women engaging
in Society combat: The letters were 90% favourable, but no evidence
was given for women engaging in Tournaments, though much
evidence was advance proving women fought in warfare of
the Middle Ages. The Correspondence on the matter has been referred
to the Marshal of the SCA, who shall forward it to the Imperial
Tribune, for action.
A suggestion has been advanced that the appointment of a Clarion
King (Queen) of Arms would be advisable. Nominations for the Office
are herewith solicited.
