Ansteorra LoI dated 2017-11-30

Greetings to the Sovereigns and College of Arms!

This letter contains submissions from Ansteorra ILoI issued 2017-10-16 and ended 2017-11-16, which can be found here: 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: Abigail Lylle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2016, via Ansteorra.

Argent, on a mortar and pestle purpure a triquetra Or

Original item was on the 05-2016 LoAR, this is a complte redesign.

Purpure, in bend three lilies bendwise argent.

This device is returned for conflict with the device of Anastasia Elgiva Orpett: Purpure, in pale a mullet of four points elongated to base Or and two lilies crossed in saltire slipped argent. In both cases, we have three co-primary charges. There is no DC for changing the tincture of only the chiefmost of the charges. There is also no DC for changing the type of the chiefmost of the charges. The stems, or lack thereof, do not count for a DC. Thus there is only one DC for arrangement as the arrangement of charges in Anastasia's armory is not one that is defined to have a SC from in bend in SENA A5CE4.

2: Abigail Lylle - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2016, via Ansteorra.

PNDB is Olof von Feilitzen's "The Pre-Conquest Personal Names of Domesday Book".

8: Wyldewode, Canton of - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Ansteorra LoI of October 13, 2016 as submitted.

Or, three chevronels braced vert and on a base embattled azure a laurel wreath Or.

Petition was signed by a majority of the officers.

The previous return at Laurel, January 2017.

Wyldewode, Canton of. Device. Per fess embattled Or and azure, three chevronels braced vert and a savage's head couped within a laurel wreath Or.

This device is returned for multiple issues. We have a single group of primaries which combines ordinaries with non-ordinaries. This has been disallowed for some time, and was recently re-affirmed in the return of Sean Kirkpatrick, on the LoAR of July 2015.

Even if we could document the combination of chevronels braced with other primary charges, this could not be registered. When part of a primary charge group, a wreath and what it surrounds are co-primary charges, which means that we have a single group of three different types of charge: chevronel, head and wreath. This slot-machine heraldry is disallowed, per SENA A3D2a.

On resubmission, please ensure that the petition of support follows the requirements of the Administrative Handbook.

In Service,

HL Elena Wyth
