Caid presented its petition for Kingdom status at the Kingdom Twelfth Night, January 8, 1977 (A.S. X). The deputation included Prince Martin the Temperate and Princess Arabella Lyon de Rohese, Mistress Gabrielle Nicole Devereaux NicChlurain who was Principality Seneschal, Baron Conrad von Regensburg who was Crescent Herald and members of the populace, including (need names). The procession marched in to a recorded song, "Gold We Bring You, Andrew of Riga" which had been composed by Mistress Joan of Crawfordsmuir to the tune "Sabbath Prayer" from "Fiddler on the Roof" and sung by Lord Cedric the Dark and Lady Natalya de Foix (then Fiona MacGregor.)

The petition was received and approved by Their Majesties Andrew of Riga and Patrice d'Cilla. Caid's Coronet Tourney, previously scheduled for June 1978, was instead Caid's first Crown Tournament. It was won by Armand de Sevigny for Diana de Savigny.

East Kingdom Photo Set

Several years ago, at a Darkover Grand Council convention in Timonium, MD, Duchess Natalya de Foix was asked for her help in identifying some old SCA photos, including some of Caid in the early days. Thanks to Master Michel Wolffauer, the East Kingdom Historian, we are able to share them here.
