Letter to the Barony; Kingdom Arts & Sciences


Greetings unto the skilled populace of Skraeling Althing from Baron Shahid and Baroness Catherine.

It was wonderful to see so many people out for Kingdom Arts & Sciences. With a very large attendance, it was a very busy and exciting event.

As always there was no lack of talented entrants from Our barony, including six Pentathlon entries:

  • The Honourable Lady Constance of Caldrithig
  • The Honourable Lady Pesha
  • Lady Emelote of Calais
  • Lady Gina Dragoni
  • Lord James the Tinker
  • Lady Morag Taylor

During Our court, We were pleased to award the Order of the Friends of the Hare to Mistress Marguerite Gingraix and Wolfgang Boar Slayer, the Order of the Black Hare to Lady Lydia, and Bunny Tails to formally welcome Quenild and Leonardo of Caldrithig.

We were honoured to witness the elevation of Mistress Marie l’Englois to the Order of the Laurel. Wassail! We would also like to congratulate Lady Emelote of Calais as Ealdormere’s newest Champion of Arts and Sciences.  Congratulations also to Lady Inge of Sten Mark on receiving an Award of the Orion, and Lord Florian DeXiphias on his Award of Arms.

For reasons outside of our control, this event was particularly challenging.  We would like to personally thank Lady Elsebeth Farberyn and her event staff, and Lady Lerthan ingen Chormaicc maicc Morgaind and her feast staff, for extreme grace under pressure.  You handled everything beautifully, and I am very proud of all of you.  A special thanks also to Meisterin Siglinde Harfnerstochter, Baron Duncan Macleod, and the Honourable Lady Marina Anstasia Ozeroski for donating their Sunday to assist with post-event clean up. Our barony cannot exist without the hard work of event staff and volunteers such as these. Wassail!

In Service,
Shahid and Catherine
Baron and Baroness of Skraeling Althing
