Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Claire Fitzwilliam of Lynnwood Keep (modernly known as Linda Duvall)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2015-12-12

Of Claire Fitzwilliam We shall tell:
How for the people who peacefully dwell
In Cynnabar's lands, its plains and wood,
She accomplishes deeds both needed and good.
She brings into being tournaments fair
And hosts the multitudes gathered there
And regulates the fighters' lists;
Through all this labor she persists,
And further, by lesson and blameless name
Teaches others to do the same.
Ermenrich and Kasha thus elect
To bestow upon her with great respect
Our Award of the Elephant's Heart
And unto to her rights and honors impart
In the presence of all the barons and lords.
Let no one countermand Our words.

In the style of the Chanson de Dermot et du comte (early 13th century Norman).
