Bronislous de Vilnius and Agrippina di Conti , 
5th Coronet of Trimaris
by Aislinn Bodiam

244 words

And so it was that Aaron Breck Gordon and Linnet Lorraine abdicated the throne in favor of their heirs, Bronislous de Vilnius and Agrippina di Conti. The Heirs were each escorted into their first court by an opposite-gender honor guard clad in blue and red tabards and carrying crossbows. During Bron and Agrippina’s reign, archery was introduced to Trimaris, with classes given on arrow-making, and archery lessons taught.  These new archers were encouraged by Their Royal Highnesses to hunt down the rogue Robin Hood. TRHs also oversaw the birth of a new shire within their Principality, named Ac Scrin, formed from the merging of two existing groups in the area of Naples. Baldar won the day at Trimaris Memorial Tourney, making himself and Ljudmilla von Konigsberg the next heirs to the throne of the Principality of Trimaris. The historian Erik von Kampf recorded that the Barony of Wyvernwoode followed Prince Bronislous to Pennsic War, fighting well on His behalf for the Kingdom of Midrealm.  John Bearkiller, King of Meridies, was in attendance at Bron and Agrippina’s last court, and sadly witnessed their demise.  Princess Agrippina was served a dish of sumptuous mushrooms which was named in her honor. She was unaware that the mushrooms were poisonous, and expired forthwith after just a few bites. Prince Bronislous was treacherously stabbed by his heir Baldar Langstriter. As his blood was spilled for the lands he had ruled so nobly, his dying words were, “Et tu, Baldar?”

And so Sakura Tetsuo and Sakura Kimineko did bequeath their Kingdom and titles to their heirs, Aaron Breck Gordon and Linnet Lorraine. At their Investiture there was much feasting and talk of the Crusades –  stories told of those who had gone to war, and much shield-thumping by those who wished to go. Thankfully, the reign of Aaron and Linnet was a mostly peace-filled one. King Aaron and the newly-made Countess Elspeth MacNoughton helped the revolting  Scots run off the English, whereby Aaron made Seosaidh mac  Seosaidh the principle of the Order of the Golden Trident for his fighting prowess and skill on the field that day. Sir Bronislaus of Vilnius won the Coronet List at Martinmas Moot for Agrippina di Conti , who then became the heirs to the Principality of Trimaris. Prince Bronislaus attended the signing of the Magna Carta. King Phelan of Meridies and his knights came to our Principality to participate in the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. As the reign of Aaron and Linnet drew to a close, the historian for the Barony of Wyvernwoode, Lord Erik von Kampf recorded that, “Their Highnesses concluded their last court and withdrew in majesty, surrounded by the bowed heads of their devoted subjects.” Von Kampf also recorded the bans of marriage between Lord Michael Kennethson to Anastasia von Anspach, and the passing of the title “Evil, Wicked, Mean and Nasty” from Baroness Enriqueta Isabel de Reyes y Mora to Lady Atalaya la Sanadora, to which the populace responded with boos and hisses.

And so did Aaron Breck Gordon and his wife Bronwen bean Aaron take over the running of the Kingdom from Verron Wulfgang Von Groth and Adrianna Maria Presley. At the first court of Aaron and Branwen, they made Laird Seosaidh mac Seosaidh a Knight of the Society for Creative Anachronism. They also created a new fighter order – the Order of the Grey Beard, for fighters who continue to strive on the heavy weapons field past the age of fifty years. During their reign, they created more orders, including the Order of the Argent Palm for continued service to Trimaris, the Order of the Black Widow for female fighters, as well as the Order of the Argent Morning Star of Trimaris which is bestowed for personal excellence in the martial arts. Aaron and Bronwen elevated Atalaya la Sanadora to the Order of the Pelican, Raoul luc Benet to the Order of the Chivalry, and Morric Haast to the Order of the Laurel. They sponsored the first Trimarian War College to prepare our fighters to battle the Atlantians at Sea Raids IV, where Trimaris and the Tuchux were victorious over the army of Atlantia. A new group was formed during their reign, the College of Golden Keype on the campus of Florida institute of Technology. At Martinmas Moot, Jarl Baldar Langstriter once again won the list to become the heir to the Kingdom of Trimaris. He will rule with Countess Ljudmilla von Konigsberg.

And so did Quentin ap Rhys and Cara Marie of Carlisle grant the Kingdom of Trimaris to their daughter and heir, Erika Bjornsdottir and her husband Seosaidh mac Seosaidh. Their Coronation had the theme of Lowland Scottish dress. Many distinguished nobles were recognized and elevated by Their Royal Majesties. Braian MacNaughton of Oldenfeld and Darien Goldenhair were Knighted. Both Brendon MacAengus and Gherardo il Trincatore known as Trinculo were Knighted at Pennsic War. The Order of the Laurel was bestowed upon Ana Alicia Rheinhardt and Elina of Beckinham. The good gentles Morgana ferch Morgan and Vasilikee of Southkeep were inducted into the Order of the Pelican. Many would say that the reign of Seosaidh and Erika was marred by several wars, but they fought bravely through their reign for the glory of Trimaris. TRM Seosaidh and Erika both fought in the Fool’s War, the Leather and Lace War, and the Battle of Crecy. Her Majesty Erika fought valiantly at Pennsic War at His Majesties’ side, but was unfortunately injured. Having fought so well, their Majesties earned enmity and enemies. Regrettably, their enemies gained the upper hand when Erika was killed protecting Seosaidh from an assassin’s arrow during court. Seosaidh chased down his would-be assassin and beheaded him, receiving severe wounds from which he did not survive. Their heir and son Solomon Spite and his consort Chelsea Blackwood of the Heights solemnly buried his parents and took over the duties of ruling the
Kingdom of Trimaris.

11th Crown of Trimaris 90-91
by Aislinn Bodiam

229 words

Huan Artur and Anastasya Ostromirovna Zadorova watched as their parents Arlof and Hillary went into the mists, then dutifully stepped forward to rule Trimaris. They were generous with their praise of their populace, awarding numerous well-deserved titles and awards and creating several new Peers. Aspasia Jeanne Cartier and Xanthus Drake Ruthendale became members of the Order of the Laurel. Fredrich Karl Kyburg and Lansemal von Weisenkreig were Knighted by the Crown. Mysteriously, a plague brought by mosquitoes threatened the people of fair Trimaris. Several events became shortened, canceled, or the date had to be moved. One event was cancelled due to tornadoes. Cooler weather soon ceased this pestilence and Trimarians gathered again for Crown List. We then ventured forth to Sea Raids in Atlantia, our army fighting valiantly, winning the A&S competition and losing the war point by one arrow. Our kind Monarchs bestowed special attention and gifts upon a small, terminally-ill child who was made Princess for the day. Huan and Anastasiya were very much patrons of the arts and sciences, especially the Scribes Guild of Trimaris, which was created during their reign. So enthralled were they by the performing arts that verily did they request the Knights of Trimaris to perform for them during their Coronation feast! Huan and Anastasiya ruled long, and reluctantly passed on the Kingdom to their heirs Brendan MacAengus and Aine Swrdwal.

Crown 10 Arlof & Hillary

Crown 10: The Tale of King Arlof and Queen Hilary


Following the reign of Llewellyn and Elena, an omen appeared in the sky, in the form of a triskele shaped cloud. It was then that Prince Arlof (later known as Sir Arturus, Count of Aranmore) and Princess Hilary appeared, mounted on a horse clad in knotwork barding. The  figure of death appeared, and Arlof rode to do battle with him. Only later that day did he return, to claim the throne for he and his lady.

In this ancient reign, set in the year 500, the presence of druids, romans and bards was ever present. Early on, their majesties were threatened with a druidic prophecy. But first came many great deeds, including the building of the Cadbury Camp Fort Reconstruction at Pennsic, the launch of the Royal Trimarian Navy, The Founding of the Fools Parade at Pennsic, and not least, a stunning victory over the combined might of Atlantia and Meridies at Fools War III. At Pennsic, the King sided with the outnumbered Midrealm, and he and his knights delivered a victory in the woods battle over the Eastern kingdom.

Arlof and Hilary are perhaps best remembered for the method of their passing. To protect them, their noble fool, Harry Pudding, drank poison intended for King Arlof. As he died, Arlof followed the druid into the otherworld, then stopped to sing of love to his lady, who joined him. Many tears were shed. 


Softly to the sound of the harp and the lyre
came the warrior-bard
King Arlof
and much joy brought he in song and merriment.
Loved was he, uncommon for kings
but not for bards.
Yet he was a dread lord of war when stirred to wrath.
He humbled the kings of Meridies and Atlantia when outnumbered,
and even stole victory from sure defeat
by bearding the Eastern King in northern lands.
He gave his life for the land and it bears his mark.
And Hilary was his queen.
And Arlof sleeps in Avalon’s mists.

Crown 45 Ardion & Lisa

LONG VERSION:  

Following the reign of The Storm Lord, Martin II and his beloved Queen, Islay II The Wise, joys of the reign of fierce King Ardion and his beloved Queen Lisa were spun in tales around the world by bards and minstrels of every tongue.  The Crowns were not only keen military stewards, but patrons of the arts and sponsors of the sciences.  No scribe went hungry or without her tools.  Every Courtier was made fat  and merry in their hospitality.  In them, Trimarian equestrians found new champions, and were held in great esteem in interkingdom tournaments of The Crown’s design.  At The Great Pennsic War, the argent and azure banners flashed above the Allied Champions Battle, and at the War of the Lillies a squadron of the finest women warriors stood fiercely with The King in the heart of the battles.  Her Majesty, too, raised waves of inspiration throughout her lands, amongst Her skilled rapier fighters, finest artisans and craftsmen.  Many were the years of bounty and prosperity under these two, our King Ardion the Irontower, and Queen Lisa The Bluebird of Happiness.  The love they shared with one another was made flesh in the birth of their good son, Thorstenn The Wronghanded and years later in the choosing of his lovely wife, Zephyrine The Graceful.
