Aidan Scoetend aet thaem Mistigum Merum, Award of the Maiden's Heart

Aiden makes the Kingdom dance and the bowstrings sing
He gives of his time and energy to the betterment of others
Without hesitation
He is a dance teacher to the populace
And gives countless hours to learning his craft
And then in instructing others

Aiden taught classes at Knowne World Dance, 12th Night
Step Sprightly, V-Day, and Forward Into The Past
And has also spontaneously led classes
When a teacher has failed to appear
He has travelled to share his passion

Aidan has helped re-kindle the passion for dance in a time
When that gentle art had been starting to fade in nearby Kingdoms
And in so doing has made the Kingdom of Ealdormere
Shine like the Northern Star
As a beacon of hope
To our cousins and neighbours in the Knowne World

For his illustrious service
We, King Nigel and Queen Adrielle
Give unto Lord Aiden Scoetend aet thaem Mistigum Merum
The Award of the Maiden’s Heart.

He has the right to bear the badge
Quarterly azur and or
a heart counter-changed

Done this 24th day of April
Anno Societatis 44
At Coronation in our Canton of Caldrithig

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir

Motif based on late 10th C. golden harness bow with Jellinge-style decoration (Mammen, Jutland, Denmark)

Runes in Elder Futhark
