Kingdom of Atenveldt
ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS
Letter of Intent
20 March 2019, A.S. LIII
Unto Juliana Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms. Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.
Ambré Renée de Passais:
The name was registered November 2018.
Considering the eclipsed sun as a sun + roundel still brings the complexity count or tinctures + charges to eight, which is acceptable.
2. Dawn Greenwall: DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, November 2018
Per fess Or and vert masoned Or, a demi-sun issuant from the line of division gules, a chief purpure.
The name was registered June 2014.
The previous submission, Per fess gyronny of 26 from the fess point Or and gules and vert masoned Or., was “returned for dividing the field into too many gyrons. In the June 1999 LoAR, it was ruled, "The question was raised regarding whether gyronny of sixteen is period, and whether it can be used in the SCA. Papworth's Ordinary of British Armorials, cites an instance from the 12th century, and Martin Schrot's Wappenbuch, a heraldic treatise shows a 16th century example. Additionally, the LoI mentions a 13th century example. Given this, we will register Gyronny of sixteen in simple cases, but nothing more, barring period evidence." This device goes beyond sixteen gyrons, and without documentation is unregisterable.” This is a redesign.
3. Eoin Ó Seachnasaigh: NEW DEVICE CHANGE
Sable, a bend sinister vert fimbriated and in dexter chief a stag salient argent.
The name was registered December 2010.
If registered, the client asks that his currently-registered device, Sable, a bend sinister vert fimbriated and in dexter chief a Celtic cross argent., registered in December 2010, be maintained as a badge.
4. Eoin the Steward: NEW DEVICE CHANGE, from Argent, on a hurt a cross couped argent, a base sable., registered June 2015.
