Brand Thorwaldsen, King and Queen's Favour

The circle of service is complete
And We are loath to break it.
Baron Brand Thorwaldsen
Gave overwhelming service to Us both
Over the past year.

He worked constantly
On all aspects of the reign
From writing Our Coronation Ceremony
To lifting and carrying Our Regalia
At every event We attended.

His patience and loyalty was extraordinary
From start to finish.
His ability to provide a calm cool place
For Her Royal Majesty
Was a talent only he could provide
And was much appreciated by
His Royal Majesty.

By reason of this great and steadfast service
We King Roak and Queen Jocea
Hereby bestow on him
The Award of the King’s Favour
The Award of the Queen’s Favour.
Such is the love We bear Our noble subject.

Done by Our hand and seal
At Coronation
In Our Barony of Ramshaven
Anno Societatis XLIV (forty-four)
