Representatives from the kingdoms of the East, Calontir and An Tir were on hand to witness this event.
A number of tournaments were held during the day, to determine who would represent Their Majesties as Their champions. At evening court, it was announced that the champions were as follows: Tormot Quilliam, King’s Champio; Tristham Ovinra I Groffa, Queen’s Champion; Graem de Liste, Archery Champion; Jobjorn, Rapier Champion; and Daniel of Whitby, Thrown Weapons Champion.
As well, His Majesty called to him several proud northern warriors to stand as the forefront of his Vanguard. These were Sir Ed the Red, Sir Quilliam, Sir Gann, THL Bjarn, Lord Tristham, HE Grom, and Lord Wiley. His Majesty hoped that in time this Vanguard would swell with more warriors in full Norse kits.
