Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Alana Eleonora Aurora de Amelia (modernly known as Amelia Marie Yunker)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2016-12-10

The choice of followers is of no small importance to a
Baron and Baroness. The first impression one has of a
great Lord and Lady, and of Their judgment, is whether
Their followers are able and faithful.

In order to keep a good follower, a Lord and Lady ought to
take care of her, honoring and enriching her, and giving
her dignities and offices. Thus, as We discern the
diligence of this woman, and as We desire to honor her,
We, Ermenrich and Kasha, by the grace of Their Royal
Majesties Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, grant unto
Alana Eleonora Aurora de Amelia Our Award of the
Elephant's Heart. Let none countermand Our words.
