Because I realize that this is concern for many of you (my connection to the

Rialto runs a few days behind....) I wanted to let you know what has been

settled re: Pennsic now that AEthelmearc will be a Kingdom.


Duchess Lisa Delorosa, Middle Kingdom Seneschal, Baroness Rhainnon the

Curious, East Kingdom Seneschal, and I sat down at Pennsic 25 to work out our

"working" agreement for Pennsic.


Essentially, the bottom line is: AEthelmearc doesn't want it!  We recognize

that it is a 25 year tradition between the East and the Middle and there is no

reason for AEthelmearc's change in status to interfere with that.  The only

trick is that the only person who can pull sanction on the event, and the

person who will have to deal with any modern legal problems that come out of

Pennsic, is the AEthelmearc Seneschal.


So, AEthelmearc has agreed to not mess with Pennsic (attempt to change the

date or location), and the East and Middle have promised to keep the

AEthelmearc Seneschal "in the loop".  In return, AEthelmearc gets some money

to compensate us for the wear and tear on our officers and people.


If you want to see the full text of the agreement, it is on the AEthelmearc

Web Page



Where and how AEthelmearc as a Kingdom "plays" at Pennsic will depend upon the

usual process the Kings of the East and Middle go through for allies and such.

For Pennsic 27 (which will be our first as a Kingdom), that will be decided

by our second King and Queen.


In service to the stopping of rumors and speculation and to the dissemination

of information : )


Mistress Orianna Fridrikskona

Seneschal, AEthelmearc

For those who somehow have not heard, there are now 18 Ladies of the

Chivalry in the SCA, and AEthelmearc has her first Lady Knight.


Duchess Rowan du la Garnison was elevated to the knighthood at Great Court

at Pennsic XXVII, August 14 A.S. XXXIII (1998).

> A hurricane might have something to do with it..


I am reminded of Aethelmearc's first coronet tournament, which I

attempted to attend but gave up in the face of impassible roads.  I

concluded that Hugo was the first prince of Aethlmearc [*].
