Kingdom of Atenveldt
ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS
Letter of Intent
30 August 2017, A.S. LII
Unto Emma Laurel; Juliana Laurel any minute now; 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.
Donndubán mac Eógain:
DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, June 2013
The original submission, Per chevron sable and vert, a chevron between two compass starts and a sword inverted argent., was returned for conflict. This is a complete redesign.
2. Eugene Haraldsson: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per pale sable and argent, a sun eclipsed between in bend an arrowhead and anther inverted, all counterchanged.
Eugene II (d. 827 AD) ascended to the papacy in 824 (Horace Mann, The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 5 (http://www.newadvent.com/cathen/05598b.htm).
Haraldr is an Old Norse masculine name, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson, The Old Norse Name, p. 10.
Adelaide de Beaumont commented that Eugene
is anglicized, and the pope was born Eugenio
Savelli (in 780), becoming Pope Eugenius in 824. SENA allows English
with Norse only before 1100, and neither Latin nor Italian combine at
Reaney and Wilson, one finds Philip Harald 1327 s.n. Herald et al.
pp. 217-218. Henryson
shows Richard Henrison 1343, Nicholas Henryson 1381, 'Son of Henry,'
p. 217; and in Bardsley, Higg, Higgs, Higson show Elizabeth Higson
of Brereton Will' at Chester. There are all within 300 years of each
other, if Eugene Haraldson is considered a plausible spelling. It
seems that the simple addition of -son
for an English byname would only use a single -s-.
3. Geraint de Grey: DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, June 2017
The name was registered October 2000.
4. Marcus Octavius Valerius: NEW NAME and DEVICE
Per pale gules and sable, an eagle Or and in chief three billets argent.
name is Latin.
The three billets in chief are an allusion to the client's knight, Sir Oslaf of Northumbria. (A rendition of Oslaf's arms is at http://www.atenveldt.org/Heraldry/OrderofPrecedence/memid/2645.)
Nikolaus Gerhart: NEW BADGE
The name was registered November 2014.
6. Viktoria of York: DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, April 2017
Argent, on a Latin cross throughout purpure a dragonfly argent.
The name was registered July 2012.
The previous submission, Per saltire argent and purpure, in pale two crosses and in fess two dragonflies counterchanged., was returned for running afoul of SENA A3D2b. which states "Mixing Ordinaries and Other Charges: While charge groups may have different types of charges, charge groups consist of either identical ordinaries or complex charges. Thus, a single charge group may not mix ordinaries with non-ordinaries or mix two types of ordinaries." Here we have a primary charge group with the crosses throughout (which are considered ordinaries) and the dragonflies. This is a redesign.
I was assisted in the preparation of this Letter of Intent by Adelaide de Beaumont, Maridonna Benvenuti and Michael Gerard Curtememoire.
There is 2 New Names, 2 New Devices and 1 New Badge. These 5 items are chargeable and Laurel should receive $20 for them. There is 3 Device Resubmissions. There are a total of 8 items on this letter.
Thank you to those who have provided your wisdom and patience, your expertise and your willingness to share it.
as tu Mika-Mysliwy
