Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Lady Beth of Cynnabar (modernly known as Beth Michalski-Jeppesen)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2019-03-30

Baron Ermenrich and Baroness Kasha to the people of Cynnabar, greeting.

Because a great part of the people, and especially workmen and servants, have spoken of the good deeds of Beth of Cynnabar, We have, upon deliberation and treaty with the prelates and the nobles and learned scholars assisting us, of their mutual counsel ordained: That Beth of Cynnabar shall be granted Our Award of the Elephant’s Heart and shall be bounden to serve the Barony which so shall her require; and shall take the wages, livery, meed, or salary, which are accustomed to be given.

If the lords of the towns or manors presume in any point to come against this present ordinance either by them, or by their servants, then pursuit shall be made against them in the counties, wapentakes, tithings, or such other courts. Let none countermand Our words.
Adapted from “Ordinance of Laborers” (1349) by Edward III of England (1312-1377).
