Rise of the Child King (formerly Hawkwood's Super Secret Event)
November 11- 13, 2016
Barony of Hawkwood
Hawkwood declares: Attend and pay tribute to the Child King of England! As one of the youngest baronies in Atlantia, Hawkwood has a special place in its heart for the youngest-ever king of England, Henry VI, who succeeded to the throne at only nine months old after his father’s death, but whose coronation didn’t occur until November 6, 1429, when he was a seasoned eight years of age. Join us in a celebration of art, weaponry and fun for all ages!
Martial Activities: There may be a tournament that combine our youth and adult fighters. There will be a tournament where a fighter choose a child to "fight for" as their champion with the honor of a special seat at court and high table as the prize. And, we are in luck! This young king inherited the Hundred Years’ War, went insane and kicked off the War of the Roses. I’m sure our fighting marshals can come up with some other excellently themed battles to accompany our event.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Lots of fun competitions are in the planning stages. One of which will be to have a youth design and create coronets for the Baron and Baroness of Hawkwood, to be worn during court. Please contact Lady Adaira Inghean Makyswell (Catherine Yvonne King) with ideas or questions, but information will be updated as it arrives.
