A veche to select a new knyaz for the city of Novgorod had taken place (with THL Bjarn being acclaimed by the people as well as by TE Septentria, Their Highnesses, and His Majesty). At the conclusion, it was asked whether there were any other matters of law to discuss. HE Brand stated that he knew of a matter of justice still outstanding from the reign of Nigel and Adrielle. This was supported by HE Xristinia, Mistress Keja, and Duchess Jocea. They were asked to approach the throne and Court was opened. Their Graces Nigel and Adrielle were called forward and confirmed that the matter was indeed decided during their reign, but they had failed to act. After conferring together, a decision was arrived upon and His Majesty nodded his assent. HE Xristina then begged a boon that Sir Ælfwyn Langanwuda be elevated to the Order of the Pelican. Sir Ælfwyn was then called before His Majesty, and the Order of the Pelican was called forward and asked whether this was their will, and they provided their assent. Duke Nigel then spoke as a Knight, Mistress Wencenedl as a Laurel, Maestra Jocelyn as a Master of Defence, and Duchess Adrielle as a Royal Peer. His Majesty then set Ælfwyn's wergild at 300 shillings and she was elevated to the Order. Master Percival presented the legacy medallion and Mistress Keja a hood upon which were placed two Pelican pins that had been owned or gifted from Mistress Etaoin. After Ælfwyn swore fealty, the scroll, scribed and limned by Dame Asa with the text in the ancient tongue, was read in the modern tongue and the new Pelican greeted her Order.
