Outlands LoI dated 2018-07-31

From the Office of Rampart Herald

THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

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 July 2018 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank ffride wlffsdotter, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Maridonna Benvenuti, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

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

1: Aarquelle, Barony of - New Badge

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

Azure, in fess three maces Or, a mountain of three peaks argent

This submission is to be associated with Award of the Mace of Aarquelle


2: Beatricia Barberini - New Name & New Device

Per chevron azure and sable, three bees proper

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Beatricia - J Uckelman, S.L. Uckelman, "Beatrice". in S.L. Uckelman, ed. The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources Edition 2017, no. 1 http://dmnes.org/2017/1/name/Beatrice.

Barberini - https://www.britannica.com/biography/Urban-VIII (Maffeo Barberini)

Additional Documentation provided by Maridonna Benvenuti, ffride wlffsdotter, & Michael Gerard Curtememoire:

MB: Barberini - "Iconologia Overo Descrittione Di diverse Imagini cavate dall'antichita ..." By Cesare Ripa, published 1603, Description of Eternity, p. 140 mentions Francesco Barberini, Florentine, and Monsignor Maffeo Barberini, Chamber cleric. Image: https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=48/2018-06-20/07-14-15_Barberini.jpg; https://books.google.com/books?id=pp5bAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA140&dq=Barberini&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjP5ZGSmOL bAhWDDnwKHcg7ChcQ6AEIPzAE#v=onepage&q=Barberini&f=false "Dizionario storico blasonico delle famiglie nobili e notabili italiane estinte e fiorenti" by Di Crollalanza, Giovanni Battista, Vol. 1 A - K, pdf p. 92. "Barberini o Da Barberino di Firenze. Dal castello omonino situato nell Valle d'Elsa, si stabili in Firenze nel secolo XIII e fu ascritta a quella nobilità. Dette alla Repubblica 4 Priori dal 1490 al 1544" A translation: "From the castle of the same name located in the Valley d'Elsa, it was established in Florence in the XIII century and was attributed to that nobility. The family gave to the Republic four Priors from 1490 to 1544." Firenze is *not* part of the name but where the family lived and was added by Di Crollalanza.

fw: Giasone del Maino. 1579. Consilia: Tomi 2, Volume 1, p. 255 has: "Visio instrumento dotis Beatriciæ filiæ Mathei de Camino... Beatricia superstite Turino..." Which my very poor Latin skills makes to be: "See the means of the dowry of Beatricia daughter of Matheus de Camino... Beatricia survivor ???" https://books.google.com.au/books?id=t_9GAAAAcAAJ&dq=Beatricia&pg=PA255-IA1#v=onepage&q=Beatricia&f= false also found a suspiciously similar looking page: Consiliorum celeberrimi: https://books.google.com.au/books?id=uaFeuTLYcZoC&dq=Beatrici%C3%A6%20fili%C3%A6%20Mathei&pg=PA255-I A1#v=onepage&q=Beatrici%C3%A6%20fili%C3%A6%20Mathei&f=false

MGC: I read with confidence in either copy of Vol. 2: "VISO instrumento dotis <Beatriciæ> filiae Mathei de Camino uxoris tuncfuturae Turini Bocatij de Vulpiano, & præsupposito, quod matrimonio contracto mortua sit <Beatricia> superstite Turino, qui intra biduum decessit, nullis relictis liberis, seu hæredibus legitimis." I'm sure a translation would begin 'Having seen the dowry document of Beatrice daughter of Matthew* de Camino the then-future bride of Turini Bocatij of Vulpiano' and I think go on with something about dying within two days and leaving (or not) legitimate heirs. Google Translate and I aren't capable of the rest of the sentence, except that <Beatricia> certainly occurs there, looking very like a nominative. Image: https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1706/2018-06-25/20-41-27_Beatricia_Consilia.PNG Beatrice - Juliana de Luna, "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Florence", https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Florence.shtml Juliana de Luna, "Late Period Italian Women's Names: Rome", https://medievalscotland.org/jes/Nuns/Rome.shtml. Along with Lady Maridonna's documentation above from the Iconologia for <Barberini>, that makes the name as submitted solidly Italian.

Originally submitted with <bees Or> rather than intended <bees proper>, the submitting herald provided a new emblazon with the needed black banding to make <bees proper> on two of the bees but the bee on the sable portion of the field had argent banding so Kingdom colored the banding sable to make all the bees proper. Original Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/images/emblazons/Outlands/2018-06/T-beatricia-c.jpg
