Kingdom Augmentation of Arms

Augmentations of Arms are always special. At Coronation, Their Royal Majesties awarded Their Graces Edmund and Kateryn an augmentation of arms.

The scroll was done by Gilliane de Solis, with wording by Andreas Blacwode.

Edmund Kateryn
Now bring We Edmund before these hard thrones
We see his love for all the Dragon lands
To be a Dragon warrior’s in his bones
Long has he held the Red Pale in his hands
No one will move the Duke from where he stands
And so he seeks to win for lady bold
Sweet Kateryn is his lovely queen so grand
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
So here is Kateryn, beauty held on high
Her love and grace encompasses us all
Upon the wings of Dragons does she fly
And far below she hears our joyful call
And standing with us she will never fall
Never in her heart a hint of cold
and welcomed all to warmth within their hall
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
So King five times, he feels it in his bones
To victory at Pennsic War he planned
A Knight and Marshal as the land has grown
As General he led the roving bands
Over the rent and blood-soaked Gulf Wars sands
A chalice for a King all done in gold
And let not merry hearts be shunned or banned
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
Rum’s Chancellor, she never has been shy
Armed now with Rapier, plunging in the brawl
And all shall learn to heed her warning cry
As down the lady hawk stoops to the thralled
As graceful as a dancer at the ball
So like the fencer Porthos, just as bold
And with her King she does defend the Walls
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
And as a Dragon’s Tooth has he been thrown
Three times across the battlefield’s lands
And as Dragon’s Heart has thus been shown
His love for all the MidRealm ne’er remand
And thus no other service we demand
Before Us now, dear friends, now you are told
So now do hear Our Royal full command
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
And thus Edmund’s Willow will, by and by
her five years on the thrones fully recall
The love of Midrealm folk never denied
And too, her love for them has never palled.
And now your protestations we forestall
His sapphire a new fitting out of gold
And thus announce before the people all
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
He is her Vanguard, she his Rose, they stand
Long will the stories of their days be told
A Kingdom Augmentation, hear the call!
Within their hearts the dragon do they hold.
