Calontir Kingdom ILoI dated 2017-01-08

¬°Buenas!

To Saito Takauji, Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Shandra, Saker. We seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

These two items were inadvertently left off the 1/6/2016 ILoI; thank you to the eagle eyed who noticed and let me know.

1: Myghal Stanborough -New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2012, via Calontir.

Migal' Stepanov

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Russian) most important.
Culture (Russian) most important.

Migal' - Russina given name recoreded in 1611, "Dictionary of Period Russian Names" by Paul Wickenden of Thanet http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/mi.html

Stepanov - Russian patronymic dated 1393, ibid. http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/sp.html


2: Ren Jie -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2016, via Calontir.

Argent, in fess an Oriental dragon rampant contourny gules and a Chinese maiden statant affronty proper crined and vested sable

Original device returned on the 6/2016 LoAR:

Argent conjoined in fess an Oriental dragon "glissant" palewise contourny gules and a Chinese maiden statant affronty proper crined and vested sable.

This device is returned because it runs afoul of SENA A2C1 which states that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms" The depiction of the human figure does not match documented depictions of period Chinese women.

This device is also returned for violating SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be describable in heraldic terms. There is no clear heraldic way to blazon the interaction of the human figure and dragon, with partial overlap and the posture of the dragon cannot be descibed in heraldic terms.

There is a step from period practice for the use of an Oriental dragon.


Commentary is due by 22 January 2017 either in OSCAR or via email to <saker@calontir.org>. The online commentary meeting will be 23 January 2017. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Mil gracias,

~Shandra Saker
