Dietrich von Sachsen, Award of the Orion, 2012

From the most Regal and Lordly, King Edward and Queen Rylyn, by might of arms Monarchs of the Lupine Kingdom of Ealdormere, send greetings to all gathered here that they may hear word of praise for a worthy Son of the North.

Good people, we know from the chronicles and books of the ancients that our kingdom has long been known as the Land That Sings. Our bards, scalds and scops have journeyed across the Inland Seas, all over the Known World, spreading word fame of Our kingdom and Our glorious peoples. Many are the blessings we have gifted to those who so strive to increase Our fame.

There is one bard in particular, gifted in wit and jest, whose accomplishments have not yet been so recognized. With passion and zeal he has taken on the appointment as the Bard of Ramshaven, and with great spirit he has challenged other bards to revive our tradition of bardic excellence. More over, it has reached Our ears that he is gifted in the arts of sewing, having learned to craft his own braes at the Cloth of Gold.

Therefore it is, that we, King Edward and Queen Rylyn, with all sincerity and goodness, do bestow upon Dietrich von Sachsen an Award of the Orion.

Given at the Canton of Bryniau Tywynnog in Ealdormere, at Middle Ages on the Green, on the 25th day of the month of August in the year of the society forty-seven.

By THLaird Colyne Stewart. Based on the Decloration of Arbroath, 1320.
