Coronation Summer 2014
Coronation was held in the Shire of Carreg Wen. The event used the parish hall of Bethiana Lutherine Church in Solvang, CA. The final court of Conrad II and Aisha preceded the coronation of Agrippa and Bridget, followed by Their first court.
Agrippa, Al-Caid was summoned and appeared behind his knight bearing a vexillum. Bridget was borne on a litter carried by several centurions. Finally, the "Wild Kuma" was escorted in, but then broke from his guards. Ultimately, Prince Agrippa freed the wild beast, and the coronation was allowed to continue peacefully.
During "Last Court", Mistress Arianna Kateryn Nunneschild was admitted into the Order of the Laurel. She appeared in a stunning red and gold dress of German design. For the "presentation of her artwork", the individuals of the procession wore costumes that were either tailored by Arianna, or Arianna had helped the wearer sew their own. Each held up a sign with the year the costume was sewn, ranging through the last 15-20 years.
