Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Dame Ursula Georges (modernly known as Ursula Whitcher)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2016-12-10

When the most excellent Lords, Baron Ermenrich and
Baroness Kasha, met benevolently at Cynnabar to
arrange with full counsel whatever might in any way
benefit the lands They hold, it was agreed between them
that according to the precedent of Their forebears They
make unto Ursula Georges this Award of the Elephant's
Heart. Let it be kept with good faith forever and not be
taken from her at any time, and let her be under the
protection and defense of the Barons of Cynnabar. And
whatever is due to her according to law and justice, she
shall not suffer any prejudice, but shall be permitted to
take and hold what is due her. All these matters having
been definitely agreed upon, these Parties swear by all
that is divine and the awful day of judgment that They will
faithfully observe all that is written above without any fraud
or deceit. Let none countermand Their words.
