Award of the Tower’s Light

Awarded to Heilvé Sunnasdottir (modernly known as Heather Sauntry)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2016-01-09

The wisest of all women is Heilvé Sunnasdottir, and well furnished of all prowess that befits a noble's dignity. Fairest fashioned are the works of her hand. From small fibers she crafts great wonders, excelling above all others in skill and learning as she does in wondrous fair manner.

We, Ermenrich and Kasha, Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, choose for Our court men and women of fame, even such as are best proven for hardihood and many honorable deeds: and We withhold from them neither wealth nor furtherance if they know how to bear themselves. Thus do We declare to all folk that Heilvé Sunnasdottir herewith receives Our Award of the Tower's Light.

Let none countermand Our words.
