Ansteorra LoI dated 2017-06-28

Greetings and Salutations to the Sovereigns and College of Arms!

This letter contains submissions from Ansteorra ILoI issued 2017-05-02 and ended 2017-06-10, which includes our Gulf Wars submissions.

Commentary can be found at http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=4463. Unless otherwise noted, the submitter has no desire for authenticity and allows any changes.

The Kingdom of Ansteorra humbly submits for registration the following heraldic items:

1: Ælfhild Ragnarsdóttir - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2015, via Caid.

Argent, a double headed eagle sable maintaining in its talons two swords inverted and crossed in saltire, on a chief gules three mullets of eight points argent

Notes on Submission form:

"Appendix I Section E:

...they are allowed to violate contrast rules, though they must have some contrast so they can remain identifiable..."

****This item was on the 10-2015 LoAR

http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/10/15-10lar.html#Caid_returns13

Ælfhild Ragnarsdóttir. Device change. Argent, a double-headed eagle sable maintaining in base two swords inverted in saltire Or, on a chief gules three mullets of eight points argent.

This device is returned for contrast issues. On the August 2015 Cover Letter we stated "Held/conjoined charges must have good contrast with their background." Here the gold swords lack contrast with the argent field.

tl:dr

Original submission had gold swords on the argent field and was returned for contrast issues. Submitter has altered their submission to have red swords which clears the contrast issue.


2: Alan Wemyss - New Name & New Device

Per pale sable and vert, a sparrow volant wings addorsed between three mullets of four points argent

Sound (Allen Weems) most important.

Alan - given name, expected vernacular form of Alannus d.1284 in withycombe

s.n. Al(l)an

Wemyss - byname dated 1286 in Reaney & Wilson


3: Arnóra Roðbertdóttir - New Name & New Device

Purpure, a descrescent between in cross four mullets of eight points Or

Arnóra - found in [GB] p 7 with 7 instances

Roðbert - found in [GB] p 14

Roðbertdóttir as patronymic is formed following the guidelines found in [GB]

Notes from Kingdom

Name submission was corrected - internal letter mistyped <Roöbertdóttir>. Name as presented <Roðbertdóttir> in the external letter now matches documentation and original forms.

Correction to Name (2017-Jun-29 10:06:12): name should have been corrected to <Roðbertsdóttir>, I neglected to add the <s> as ffride suggested in her ILOI Commentary. http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=4463#3


4: Astridh Flokadottir - New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound (Astrid) most important.

SMP sn. Astridh

(http://arkiv.sprakochfolkminnen.se/Display.aspx?form=smp-sok&item=/Nordiskt/Variationsnamn/Kvinnonam n/Astridh/Astridh.pdf)

Lind col. 277 sn. Flóki mentions:

"Flóki Þorleiks s." from the 1200s in Iceland.

Flokadottir - "daughter of Floki"

Floka genitive form of Flokí

Note from Kingdom

Client desired a 10th century Norse feminine name, but was more strongly pulled by her desire for the hard-d "Astrid" sound in the first name, so we've updated the documentation to reflect ffride's findings in the ILOI http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=8&loi=4463#4.


5: Aunphelice de Grene - New Name & New Device

10: Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia - New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Ekaterina Stepanova doch' Novgorodskaia in July of 2004, via Ansteorra.

(fieldless) A delf gules

We find that, per the submitter's note, this does not violate A.3.E.3 because of this ruling from June 2002:

[(Fieldless) A delf azure] As noted in the April 2002 LoAR, "A 'shield shape' which is also a standard heraldic charge will be acceptable as a fieldless badge in a plain tincture, as long as the tincture is not one of the plain tinctures that is protected armory in the SCA". Since Azure is not protected armory in this SCA, a fieldless badge consisting of a delf azure is acceptable, and does not appear to be an independent display of arms. [Trimaris, Kingdom of, 06/2002, A-Trimaris]

This ruling was reiterated with the post-SENA registration of an equivalent charge:

Raven's Cove, Barony of The following badge associated with this name was registered in July of 2013 (via Atlantia): (Fieldless) An inescutcheon sable. for Order of the Sable Shield

It was returned in kingdom, and can be seen on this letter of decision

http://heraldry.ansteorra.org/ILoD/ilod201607.pdf

Here's what was said about it : Unfortunately, this must be returned for work. Inverted arrows have points up, should these been inverted? The point and dragon's head need to be drawn smaller, and the sword and arrows need to be drawn larger/beefier. It is also suggested to remove the connection between the sword and the point. ****
