Karina of the Far West, Laurel Queen of
to the Heralds of the Four Kingdoms,
I had not planned to any more acceptances
until the new edition of the Armorial and Ordinary came out. That,
however, has been delayed by computer difficulties, and I would
not attempt to send it through the Christmas mail in any case.
Meanwhile, there are three sets of arms that ought to be passed
before Twelfth Night; they include an outgoing queen, an incipient
queen, and a burgeoning Principality.
The following, therefore, have been accepted.
Patrice du Couer Fidel. Argent, upon a heart gules a heart Or, a bordure engrailed azure.
Note grammar corrections. One language per
noun, and preferably per name.
Kathryn du Vent de Mer of Whitewolfe. Argent ermined gules, a heart gules, pierced by three tridents Or, two in saltire, one inverted.
Note grammar corrections.
Principality of Meridies. Argent, on a pale sable a crown of three points, above each point a molet argent, all within a laurel wreath counterchanged.
Brigantia is right; "dancetty"
is not the right term for the crown.
I am now closing up shop until after the
holidays. I wish you all a roisterous Twelfth Night and a peaceful
I remain at your service,
Karina of the Far West
O.L., Pel., Baroness
Laurel Queen of Arms
