Drachenwald ILoI dated 2017-05-12

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

This is the second Drachenwald ILoI for the month of May. The final part to complete the name and device submissions of the Incipient Shire of Trivium arrived only two days after the main Drachenwald ILoI for May 2017 was published, and instead of waiting another month, we decided to publish them right away.

Commentary on this letter is due on May 26.

1: Trivium, Shire of -New Branch Name & New Device

Gules, on a pall Or three laurel wreaths sable.

No changes.

Trivium

According to Dictionnaire topographique de la France (http://cths.fr/dico-topo/affiche-vedettes.php?cdep=30&cpage=248) (see #1):

The town known today as <Trève> or <Trèves> in Vigan is recorded as <Trivium> ("Apud Trivium") in a Latin document from 1289 (Lemma: Truce)

A Latin Dictionary by Charlton T. Lewis and Charles Short. Clarendon Press 1879 (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus:text:1999.04.0059:entry=trivium) (see #2):

trĭvĭum , i, n. ter-via.

I. Lit., a place where three roads meet, a fork in the roads, cross-road: "ut ventum est in trivium," Cic. Div. 1, 54, 123.--

II. Transf., in gen., a public square, the public street, highway; plur.: "in triviis aut in compitis," Cic. Agr. 1, 3, 7: "nocturnisque Hecate triviis ululata per urbes," Verg. A. 4, 609; Lucr. 4, 1203: "occurram in triviis," Hor. S. 1, 9, 59; id. Ep. 1, 16, 64; 1, 17, 58; id. A. P. 245.-- Sing.: "pueros in trivio docere," Just. 21, 5; Tib. 1, 1, 12 (22).--Prov.: "arripere maledictum ex trivio," i. e. out of the street, from the mob, Cic. Mur. 6, 13.

The branch name submission comes with a petition.

Petition for registration of the name of "Trivium".

With our signatures, we, officers of Trivium, agree upon the registration of the name "Trivium" as the name of our shire in the kingdom of Drachenwald. The shire coincides with the national area of the country of Belgium, Europe.

We agree upon both the name and the spelling thereof:

[legal names redacted]

Rachel de Montfort, Seneschal, Approve: Yes [signature]

Cuntz Tavernier, Exchequer, Approve: Yes [signature]

Katharina Van Antwerpen, Herald, Approve: Yes [signature]

Murayama Masanori, Chatelaine, Approve: Yes [signature]

[dated]

The branch name submission comes with a permission to conflict received from the Kingdom of Ealdormere for their heraldic title <Trillium Herald>.

We, [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Jocea Valente, seneschal of the Kingdom of Ealdormere; [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Tormot Quilliam, King of Ealdormere; [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Domhnaill Galbraith, Queen of Ealdormere, and [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Pelayo Lanzo Hiero, Trillium Principal Herald, give the Kingdom of Drachenwald permission for the name "Shire of Trivium" to be similar to, but not identical to, the kingdom of Ealdormere's heraldic title, "Trillium Herald". I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once the Shire of Trivium's name is registered.

[dated] [signed]

The branch device submission comes with a petition.

Petition for registration of the Device for "Trivium".

With our signatures, we, officers of Trivium, agree upon the registration of the device for Trivium with the blazoning as following:

"Gules, on a pall Or three laurel wreaths sable."

[legal names redacted]

Rachel de Montfort, Seneschal, Approve: Yes [signature]

Cuntz Tavernier, Exchequer, Approve: Yes [signature]

Katharina Van Antwerpen, Herald, Approve: Yes [signature]

Murayama Masanori, Chatelaine, Approve: Yes [signature]

Correction to Device (2017-May-23 10:05:32): Based on the commentary so far, Trivium wishes to proceed with a new emblazoning. The new line drawing and colour version can be seen in the comments section.
