From The Page (June, 1977)
The June Investiture to crown the new Prince and Princess of Caid (and Lists for the Princess' Champion) will be held, this year, in Dreiburgen.
The Investiture will be held on June 4 at Shamel Park in Riverside. Setup will begin at 9:00 AM, with the last court of Prince Martin the Temperate and Investiture of the new Prince to begin at 10:00. At approximately 1:00 PM the Lists for the Princess' Champion will begin.
Immediately following the Lists will be a barbecue. Everyone is asked to bring their own meat and drinks. Also, anyone owning a hibachi or portable bar-b-que is requested to bring it along. Charcoal will be provided by the Barony of Dreiburgen.
Any groups (cantons, colleges, or whatever) that would be interested in selling side dishes or desserts are encouraged to do so. To coordinate this, please contact the Seneschal of Dreiburgen, Lady Brann Morgan Dunmore of Galloway (contact info omitted). This is a great way to get some money into your treasuries.
- From the History (by Wilhelm von Schlüssel): Lady Brann Morgan Dunmore of Galloway was the autocrat. Prince Martin and Princess Arabella held their final court. King Terrence and Queen Jennet attended. Prince Martin gave Awards of Arms to Hedgia du Loup, Meghan Catriona McInnes of Kinlochaline, Nikolaj Zrogowacialy, and Patrick of Innisfree. Baron Piers Howells de Cambria and Baroness Ximena Aubel de Cambria resigned their posts as Baron and Baroness of the Angels. Baron Piers agreed to remain as Vicar until their successors could be chosen. Then Grand March was held and Balin and Lorissa were crowned Prince and Princess of Caid. Princess Lorissa reinstated the Princess’ Guard, with Duke Aonghais dubh MacTarbh as Knight Commander.The members of the Guard were: Robear du Bois, as Standard Bearer, Duryn the Red, Renfield of the Inland March, Patrick of Innisfree, Charles of Dublin, Kamal Mishwa Kahn, Jason Griffiths of Shadowhyrst, Fredrick of Woodlyn, and Lorenzo di Santangelo. Sir Martin the Temperate and Lady Arabella Lyon de Rohese were proclaimed Viscount and Viscountess. Numerous presentations were made to their Highnesses. Then the fighters took the field for the Princess’ Favor Lists, with Viscount Gregory of York defeating Charles of Dublin to win the title of Princess’ Champion. At closing court Princess Lorissa presented him with her favor.
- Piers and Ximena resigned as Baron and Baroness of the Angels. Piers remained as Vicar until successors could be chosen.
- I've just realized somewhere along the line, a King of the West gave the Prince of Caid authority to give out Awards of Arms in his name. It should be noted when this happened as it was a "step" in the maturation of Principality to Kingdom for Caid. I think it happened during this, my first, reign as Prince of Caid but am not sure. I think I also gave awards at the previous Caiden 12th Night. So it occurred at least mid-way through this reign. – Martin the Temperate
- Princess Lorissa reinstated the Princess' Guard, with Duke Aonghais dubh MacTarbh as Knight Commander. “At that time, none of us had any clue what Duke Aonghais was up to. Eastern SCAers didn't tell us about his shenanigans there, and the various people he'd ticked off in Caid hadn't yet spoken up. So we went on, thinking he was somewhat bombastic, but OK. At closing court Princess Lorissa presented him with her favor. “Lora made that favor herself. I didn't have any hand in her presentations except to supply the materials. She was quite a needle artist from an early age, though never recognized for it in the SCA. There was a great melee with water balloons and some very soaked people, which essentially became a children's crusade against Robear the Headsman, who fought valiantly whilst he could, but finally lay down and dried.] “Though many people remember these children-oriented events as a nod to Lora's youthfulness, there were actually quite a few children about her age in Caid, including several girls (none of whom wanted to kiss at that time). Robear was their big toy; children could pummel him with impunity, and wreak all kinds of indignities on him, and he'd take it in stride.” – Flavia Beatrice Carmigniani
