Atenveldt Submissions (excerpted from the S.C.A. College of Arms' Letters of Acceptance and Return)

The following submissions were registered by the S.C.A. College of Arms, May 2013:

`{A-}'isha al-Zakiyya bint Yaz{i-}d al-May{u-}rq{i-}. Device. Purpure, a cauldron and on a chief embattled argent three pomegranates slipped and leaved vert seeded gules.

Arminius von Bitburg. Name (see PENDS for device).

Dolphin was able to find citations of Arminius as a 16th century German given name in the FamilySearch Historical Records, dating to 1574 and 1611 among others.

Astrina de la Meuse. Name and device. Azure, a scorpion argent mulletty azure, a sinister gore barry wavy purpure and argent.

While the clearly documented byname form is de Meuse, de la Meuse can be justified as a plausible form. It is found in gray period documents in forms such as Duché de la Meuse (in the 1648 Trois liures du domaine de la couronne de France found at The reference here is to a much earlier entity, but makes it clear that late period French speakers found a locative description of de la Meuse a plausible construction. Thus, it can be registered, although de Meuse is a more typical form.

Ismeralda Franceska Rusciolelli da Vale. Name and device. Quarterly vert and argent, a cross patonce throughout counterchanged.

Nice device!

Ivar of Elsinore. Name.

Elsinore is the lingua Anglica form of the Danish place Helsingør, which is among other things the setting of Hamlet.

The following submission is pended until the October 2013 Laurel meeting:

Arminius von Bitburg. Device. Per chevron inverted gules and sable, a sheaf of arrows and an Oriental abacus Or.

This device is pended until the outcome of the current discussion on how we treat a sheaf plus another charge in the same group is handled, which should be decided in June 2013. This submission will be decided at that time.

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

This was item 1 on the Atenveldt letter of February 25, 2013.
