Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Viktoria Luidgarda von Kirn (modernly known as Victoria Behringer Walters)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2014-12-20

Full many a wonder is told us in stories old, of heroes worthy of praise, of hardships dire, of joy and feasting, of the fighting of bold warriors, of weeping and wailing; now ye may hear wonders told.

In Cynnabar there dwells so noble a woman that in all the lands none wiser might there be. Viktoria Luidgarda von Kirn is she called, for whom none bear hate. Well worth loving is this winsome woman: Free she is of every blemish. Strong and famous she will become. What great worship she will win in this world!

Gladly Our people see her. Truly Our lands are honored, that she is found in all things of such right mind. Thus we, Ermenrich and Kasha, Freiherr und Freiherrin auf Cynnabar, bestow upon Viktoria Luidgarda von Kirn the Award of the Elephant's Heart.

Let none countermand Our words.
