Drachenwald ILoI dated 2018-03-27

To all wise and fair gentles who assist our Kingdom with commentary, and every one reading these words, sends Mór Edelweiss her greetings!

This is a special Internal Letter of Intent, additional for the month of April. It includes the names and badges related to the new Drachenwald orders which will carry grants-of-arms.

The time for commenting is four weeks; comments are due on April 24.

1: Drachenwald, Kingdom of -New Order Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 1993, via Drachenwald.

Alae, Ordo

No major changes.
Language (Latin) most important.
Meaning (Order of the Wing) most important.

In the event of a conflict that cannot be cleared with a Permission to Conflict, or some other unsolvable issue preventing the registration of <Alae, Ordo>, the Kingdom of Drachenwald wishes to submit the name as <Alae Drachenwaldensis, Ordo>, 'Order of the Wing of Drachenwald' instead.

This order name follows the period pattern of naming after a heraldic charge, identified in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/order/new/). For example:

s.n. Crown of Roses (Germany): <societas Rosarii>, 'society of the garland of roses', c. 1400, Latin (German)

Ordo is a registrable designator (SENA Appendix E).

Alae is the Latin genitive singular of ala, 'wing'.

Wing is a period heraldic charge. The Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry by Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme (http://mistholme.com/dictionary/wing/):

"A wing may be used as a single charge; this usage dates from c.1295, in the English arms of Peek."

Drachenwald is a constructed German place meaning "dragon's forest". The name is formed of the elements Drache, 'dragon' in its genitive form Drachen, and Wald, 'forest', 'woods'. It is also a registered SCA Branch Name, but the submitter wishes the order name to be in Latin instead of containing the lingua Anglica form "of Drachenwald" required by the Branch Name Allowance.

An example of a German place name beginning with the element <Drachen-> is <Drachenfels>, 'dragon's rock', a hill and a castle (now a ruin) in Germany. Drachenfels and its grey period spelling can be seen in an engraving published in Thesaurus philopoliticus, 1623 (#1). <Drachenfels> and other examples are also mentioned in the Academy of Saint Gabriel report # 2924 (http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2924.txt):

"The places that we have found with the element <Drachen-> in them are <Drachenfels>, <Drakenburg> or <Drachenburg>, <Drackenfeld>, <Drackenstedt>, and <Drachenstein>."

An example of a German place name ending with the element <-wald> is Greifswald, 'griffin's forest', with various attested ways of spelling it including <Gryphiswald> (1607, #2 left side) and <Gripswald> (Tavola Nvova di Germania, 1561, #2 right side).

Drachenwaldensis has a Latin adjectival suffix appended to the vernacular form <Drachenwald>. Examples of such structure are:

  • <Hammaburg> -> <Hammaburgensis> in Gesta Hammaburgensis ecclesiae pontificum, circa 1085 (#3)
  • <Duisburg> -> <Duisburgensis>, 1549 (#4)
  • <Gryphiswald> -> <Gryphiswaldensis>, 1607 (#2 left side)

Annuli is the Latin genitive singular of annulus, 'ring', 'annulet'.

Drachenwald is a constructed German place meaning "dragon's forest". The name is formed of the elements Drache, 'dragon' in its genitive form Drachen, and Wald, 'forest', 'woods'.
