The Theme of Their Highnesses Upcoming Reign Revealed!

Greetings Unto the Noble Populace of Ealdormere from Prince Quilliam and
Princess Domhnail!

With our Coronation Day fast approaching, We are issuing a missive to give
people a head start on the theme of our reign. As the season of the Viking
wanes, the sun is rising on the time of the Tudors. Through a spectacular
time warp, the autumn season is going to start at the Field of the Cloth of
Gold in the 1500s!

Some of you may remember a time, generations ago, when Domhnail the 1st was
a proud Saxon queen, who warred (mostly playfully) with a strong Norman
King. Several hundred years later, we look forward to having another Proud
Queen named Domhnail, who will be carrying the Fleur-de-lis of the French
Court
. She will be reigning with a Strong English Tudor King, emblazoned
with the Rose of the Tudors. We are looking forward to a reign filled with
(mostly) friendly rivalry, as the people of Ealdormere establish once and
for all which Monarchy’s star shone the brightest.

We would encourage event planners to include a structure of “French vs
English”, so that we can establish which side’s glory stands out the
strongest at each event, in particular having tournament entrants claim
which side they represent, artisans declare their allegiance at A&S
competitions, etc. We also hope that people will participate in the Tudor
theme as much as possible, and we look forward to the stunning garb we hope
to see at our events.

We sincerely hope to see you all at as many events as possible, and are
excited for the possibilities throughout our Winter Reign. We would
appreciate if people would re post this missive to their local groups, so
that the word can be spread to the most distant corners of our Kingdom.

Sincerely,

Quilliam and Domhnail

Heirs to the Thrones of Ealdormere
