Drachenwald ILoI dated 2017-12-10

DRACHENWALD HERALD TRIBUNE Volume 19, Issue 12 (December 2017)

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

This month we will have a special treat, for we expect there to be an additional Internal Letter of Intent for commentary. This special letter will contain suggested names and insignia for the new Grant of Arms level awards of Drachenwald. The purpose of the letter and its commentary will be to examine whether any of the suggestions are obviously unacceptable for registering. The special letter is expected later this month.


Monthly timeline

  • Commentary on the submissions in this letter is due on December 24.
  • (Commentary on the additional ILoI is expected to be due at the end of December.)
  • December Letter of Intent is assembled by the end of this month.

1: Drachenwald, Kingdom of -New Heraldic Title

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

Marguerite Pursuivant

No major changes.
Meaning (Daisy / Pearl) most important.

Notes for kingdom commentary:

Branch submission. The evidence of support required by DW CoH is sufficient. Schwarzdrachen Principal Herald has approved submitting this heraldic title for Kingdom of Drachenwald.

Marguerite means the flower daisy as well as a pearl.

This heraldic title follows the period form of naming after a heraldic charge, identified in Heraldic Titles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance: Standard Forms by Origin and Country by Juliana de Luna (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/HeraldicTitlesSCA/heraldic_titles_by_type.shtml)

The daisy flower is a period charge, found in the canting arms of Day, 1543 (Parker, J. A Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry. Charles E. Tuttle, reprinted 1970 (orig. pub. 1894), 193). According to the Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry, "It may also be blazoned a "marguerite", especially for canting purposes." (http://mistholme.com/?s=daisy)

According to Anglo-Norman Dictionary (http://www.anglo-norman.net/gate/) s.v. margarite, margerete, marguerite:

2 [bot.] daisy: "deux potz d'argent doré a ung esmaal sur le couvercle d'une chapel d'encolies (= columbine) et de marguerites" Bedford Inventories B173 (The Bedford Inventories: The Worldly Goods of John, Duke of Bedford, Regent of France (1389-1435), ed. J. Stratford, London, 1993.)


2: Drachenwald, Kingdom of -New Badge

4: Ellisa von Styra -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning (Styra (modern name Steyr) is my city of origin, Ellisa a variation of Elisabeth) most important.

Ellisa is a female given name dated to 11th or 12th century in Socin, page 53 (see #2).

It is also found in the Codices Traditionum (Saalbuch) from Göttweig (Austria) which lists donations, endowments, inheritances, sales and trades from the year 1072 to the middle of the 13th century (https://archive.org/stream/fontesrerumaustr08stuoft/fontesrerumaustr08stuoft_djvu.txt):

The following passage basically states that a number of people is renouncing the world and their inheritance. Ellisa is on this list of people.

XLVIII.

Notum sit cunctis sanete ecclesie fiiiis qualiter quidam nohilis. N. Poto mundo apud nos renuncians. predia sua hereditario sibi iure tradita. scilicet Perihartidorf et Cumpotingin absque omni contradictione tradidit super altare S.

Ellisa was used as a first name in a Christening on October 13, 1567 in Wedmore, Somerset, England; Batch I02568-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JQM4-NXJ)

Styra or Stira was in use for the modern day city of Steyr, Austria between at least 985 and 1304.

In 1287, the citizens of Styra (cives in Styra) received specific privileges from Duke Albrecht I of Austria in a document commonly called "Großes Privilegium" (http://monasterium.net/mom/OOEUB/1287_VIII_23/charter), see #4

"Qua nimirum consideratione moniti prudentes viri cives in <Styra> fideles nostri dilecti, cum quosdam libertates et consuetudines de permissione illustrium quondam principum Austrie et Styrie predecessorum nostrorum usque in presenciarum perduxerint, confirmationis patrocinio seu litterarum testimonio non munitas benignitati nostre perpensius supplicarunt, quatenus libertates easdem et gracias justificare, sibi concedere et confirmare de speciali nostra clemencia dignaremur, que quidem jura decrevimus presentium serie declaranda.[...]

von Styra is a locative formed in a typical German fashion.

"Locatives based on place names use the forms von X" (SENA Appendix A)
