Their Incoming Majesties Armand and Diana

The following paragraphs contain a brief description of their Majesties’ personas in order that the people of Caid and the Knowne world might know their King and Queen better.

ARMAND DE SEVIGNY -- KING OF CAID Armand de Sevigny was born in Normandy in the year 1160. Son of a minor Norman baron who held feifs scattered in both England and Normandy, Armand learned his trade of war under the tutelage of his father, Alphonse, and William Marshal. He served in the retinue of Young Henry, son of King Henry II, until sometime after his knighting on the eve of All Saints Day, 1179. After Richard's accession to the throne, Armand was constantly engaged in warfare in his service in the Holy Lands and on the Continent.

With Normandy's fall to the French in 1204, he transferred his allegiance to the French King Phillip for his lands in Normandy and Maine, forfeiting his English estates. In 1214, at the Battle of Bouvines, Armand fought against his former English friends and their German allies.

History takes note of Armand de Sevigny in June, 1219, when he is found once again on Crusade, this time in Egypt. While there he met Francis of Assisi who made a profound impression upon Armand. Returning home, he retired to a small hermitage and a life of simplicity. Armand passed from the world on December 21, 1226. -- MAS

DIANA DE SAVIGNY -- QUEEN OF CAID Diane de Sevigny was born in Poitiers in the year 1159. Her family was loosely related to Duke William X of Aquitane, the father of Eleanor, Queen of England and wife to King Henry II. Diana was educated by private tutors from both Paris and Provence, and she especially excelled in music. At a young age, she visited the Court of Henry and Eleanor, and later became a lady-in-waiting to Eleanor during her "confinement" by Henry. It was during one of her stays at Court that Diana met Sir Armand de Sevigny. They were married in the summer of 1182. -- DdS.
