rampart@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the December 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor, ffride wlffsdotter, Magnus von Lübeck, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Iago ab Adam, Omar Mohammud Mirzazadeh, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this December the following items from the Outlands' College of Heralds.

1: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Award of the Anvil of Aarquelle

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

The Mistholme Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry states: http://mistholme.com/?s=anvil An anvil is an iron block on which metalware is hammered into shape.


2: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Award of the Furisons of Aarquelle

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

The Mistholme Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry states: http://mistholme.com/?s=furison A furison is a fire steel, used with flint to strike sparks for starting fires. The furison is a period charge, found in the arms of Grassawer, c.1340 [Zurich 237]; but its most famous usage is as a badge of the Order of the Golden Fleece, c.1430.


3: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Award of the Mace of Aarquelle

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

The Mistholme Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry states: http://mistholme.com/?s=mace A mace is a heavy club-like weapon; the metal head is often spiked, knobbed, flanged or otherwise shaped to best penetrate armor.


4: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Award of the Wolves of Aarquelle

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

Wolf: The Mistholme Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry states: The wolf is a predatory canine beast, whose medieval reputation was one of rapacity and strength. It was a common charge in medieval armory, called a "leu" or "loup" in early blazons, and found as early as c.1275 in the canting arms of Lou [ANA2 109]. The wolf does not seem to have a default posture; the illustration shows a wolf rampant.


5: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Order of the Eagle's Plume

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

An eagle is a period heraldic charge. The updated Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry http://mistholme.com/dictionary/eagle/ states: The eagle is the monarch of the birds, the medieval symbol of majesty and vision (literally and figuratively). It is thus a frequent charge in medieval armory, dating from the earliest heraldic records, as in the arms of the Kingdom of Germany, c.1244 [ANA2 193].

A plume is a period heraldic charge. The updated Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry http://mistholme.com/dictionary/feather/ states: A feather is one of the growths covering a bird's wings and body; it consists of a quill or central shaft with a flat leaf-like surface growing from it. It is also termed a "plume", though this term is usually reserved for ostrich tail feathers ...

Under SENA, the Order of the Eagle's Feather, registered to the Barony of Lochmere, May 1990, would not conflict.


6: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Order Name

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Order of the Silver Blade of Aarquelle

Naming pattern : [Order] [color] [heraldic object]

This order name follows the pattern of [color] + [heraldic charge] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

Silver -- The May 2008 Cover Letter states: "Silver in order and award names: The August 2005 cover letter says that 'orders named for heraldic charges or for items that, while not found in period as heraldic charges, may be used as heraldic charges...may contain the ordinary color names of any heraldic tincture.' This includes the use of Silver as the ordinary color name of argent." (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2008/05/08-05cl.html)

"Blade": OED vol 2 p.254 s.n blade. 7.a "The blade being the essential part of such weapons etc. is often put for the whole, esp. in poetry and literary language." Examples of this usage are dated: 1325 blades, 1386 blade, 1460 blayde, 1583 blades, 1599 blades. Authors include Chaucer and Shakespeare, as well as others. [Taken from Gleann Ahbann's 10/2011 LoI, Order of the Queen's Silver Blade, http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=18513]

Order of the Sword Bearers of Aarquelle

This order name follows the pattern of [award] + [People or group of people] found in "Medieval Secular Order Names" by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/).

"Sword berer" is found in The History of the City and County of Norwich with a reference to the year 1549 (https://books.google.com/books?id=M3A-AAAAcAAJ&pg=PA492&lpg=PA492&dq=sword+berer&source=bl&ots=2pjvd uZ4kF&sig=Dw0Qs9-ZiLruoP0XiMvTX7M0XEE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiugr_zm-rWAhXCxVQKHQufB-MQ6AEIPTAF#v=on epage&q=sword%20berer&f=false)

Also in the The Collaborative International Dictionary of English (http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/cide/173362)

Additional Documentation provided by Ragnvaldr of Rendlesham and ffride wlffsdotter:

In 1203 Pope Innocent III confirmed the Order of the Sword Bearers of Livonia, so there is period precedent for this name. https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A26024.0001.001/1:9.5.24?rgn=div3;view=fulltext

https://books.google.com/books?id=FmJnyTlis7oC&pg=PR21&lpg=PR21&dq=the%20Order%20of%20the%20Sword%20 Bearers%20of%20Livonia&source=bl&ots=K6_mAfF_fz&sig=1v27XPNIR5zDtH_C6bJeFS30aTQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahU KEwjX0_3ys-DXAhVM0FQKHc3pAs0Q6AEIODAE#v=onepage&q=the%20Order%20of%20the%20Sword%20Bearers%20of%20L ivonia&f=false

They were called Ensiferi fratres during the SCA's period. The principall nauigations, voiages, and discoueries of the English nation, by Richard Hakluyt (the copy in Early English Books Online I found is dated 1599-1600) has: "In the yeere 1239. the knights of the sword, who trauailed into Liuonia to conuert the inhabitants thereof vnto Christ" With "Ensiferi fratres" in the margin.

Originally submitted as <RaDawn Pārsā> with documentation for <Pārsā> being a Persian masculine surname as <Pârsâ>. There was a great deal of debate during the ILoI over whether or not the legal name allowance would allow for the mixing of a feminine name element with a masculine one even though it would not be done in Arabic/Persian culture. The general consensus was no so the submitter was consulted and they opted to drop the accents and the Arabic/Persian documentation.

Device conflicted checked on the ILoI by Green Anchor. No conflicts found.
