The Fifth Book of the Chronicles of Eoforwic
Page 7 of 7
Thus did the first twenty years of Eoforwic draw to a close. And thus on the occasion of the anniversary of the first tourney in Eoforwic, these were the officers: Ysabeau de Vauvert was seneschal, and Morgan Blackheart exchequer and minister of children. Angus Albahni was knight marshal, and Albrecht Stampher marshal of fence, and Gaerwen of Trafford archery lieutenant. And Mercedes d'Abelard was Minister of arts and Sciences, and Zara her deputy. And Cassandra Nannina Losiseral was Pursuivant, and Tristan her deputy. Rosina was the Mistress of Dance. Edward the Chaste was Chatelain. And Gunnar Halfdan of Lund was Lord Mayor, the sixth of his line, and Aveline de la Rose was sherrif. And Anthea Lovatte held the City Treasury. It is thus a great indicator of the changes in the City that but one official had held her office during the four years traversed by this Chronicle, and that was Lady Anthea. Indeed, while Eoforwic of old was still held in fond memory by many, in truth those days were past, and a new generation now sallied forth, doing deeds worthy of song, restoring Eoforwic to her high estate, a solid link in the chains of fealty to the Kingdom, a glittering sapphire in the Coronets of Ealdormere, a welcoming fire in the hearth of Septentria, no Muddy York, but rather a City of Queens.
And here ends this fifth chronicle. It shall be the task of another to record the momentous events of the succeeding months, of the War fought by King Osis on the plains of Pennsia and the deeds of Cityfolk there, of how Her Utsilency was joined by His Footsilency, of the elevation to the Peerage of Ragni Dzintara, and of other such things.
