  6. State Visit of the Grand Ducal Family

    The Grand Duke and the King walked forward through labrythine marble corridors and richly decorated staterooms until they came upon The King's Private Chamber. A small luncheon had been arranged and the footman to the royal party left. "So, Dearest Cousin, What thoughts have you on the marriage between myself and The Noble Lady Astrid?" asked the The King stirred his tea gently. "Whenever two people join in the sacrament of holy matrimony, it fills me with joy and wonder ... " he stopped mid sentence to sip from his china cup. "Especially when the two parties are of noble Nidaros." The Grand Duke grinned. "Indeed, it is most pleasant. Talking of spouses, where is Her Majesty ? Does the Queen not wish to speak with my party? I do hope my abrupt arrival has not jilted her. I did not bring Lady Astrid with me purely for reasons of virtue. Has she left ?" The King replaced the cup to the mug. "The Queen will be present later. Her Majesty is currently still being occupied by her time at the Summer Ball. She regrets that you had to leave." The Grand Duke laughed. "Yes, I must apologise to her for that. An old rivalry between myself and one Vilhelm von Benkern. He headed the rival army that marched against me in The War against the Eorltheod long ago. However, Vilhelm has made amends and he now sits in the Riskaian House of Lords and holds a Lieutenant-Colonel commission in the St George Fusiliers. Truly a changed man." The King sniffed. "Yes, The Lord does work through the unexpected to change lives." The Grand Duke nodded in agreement and rose from his chair. "I will depart from Your Majesty's luncheon to go and settle into my apartments. For dinner this evening, I will wear your kind gift with my dinner clothing and will send your kind gifts to the Lady Astrid by carriage straightaway." The King rose and shook the Grand Dukes hand. "Until dinner Royal Cousin."
  7. State Visit of the Grand Ducal Family

    A fanfare emitted from the glistening trumpeteers of the King of Treisenburg. "Presenting His Grand Ducal Highness, The Prince-Duke of Riskai-Nidarosia" bellowed the Master of Ceremony. The uniformed Prince clattered and jingled with the vast assortment of orders and medals out of the state coach. Atop his head was a feathered cavalry peak and he was clad in the black and gold uniform of the Field Marshal of the Pontifical Guard of Riskai Nidarosia. In one white gloved hand he held the marshalate baton of the Duke and the other was clasped firmly around his sabre. "Guard of Honour, Presenting Arms to the Front - PRESENT ARMS !" shrieked a Sergeant Major. The walls seemed to move as they were lined with the neatly ironed and elaborately clad uniforms of the Petrine Guard. In movements of quick precision and skilled manoeveure, the Guard moved forward to create a corridor up to the King. The Grand Duke clicked his fingers and a large golden casket was behind him as he slowly approached the King of Treisenburg. "Our Ever Loving Cousin. Noble Treisenburg has done itself proud. Your Palace is quite beautiful ..." "Indeed, The Lord has been most kind to Our Noble Family." The Grand Duke opened the chest. Inside was a brightly gleaming diamond star of a Knight Grand Commander of the Order of the Brazen Bull. There also was the seal of the Lord High Chancellor. "A token of Riskai-Nidarosia's esteem for having us here." A multitude of other gifts followed, showered on the most senior of the Kings household. Several chests of golden coins from the Treasury of the Duke were placed at the Kings feet. The King smiled.
  8. State Visit of the Grand Ducal Family

    *The guards stood silently, their banners fluttering gently in the singular breeze which had caught on. Many eyes were fixed on the vast entity of moving carriages and men marching up to the rendezvous point. One of the carriages, bedecked in deepest blues and blazing golds held the Grand Duke of Riskai-Nidarosia. "Methinks Treisenburg is a country of great significance to Our Faith. Tell me, what be the base statistics of this nation?", the Grand Duke sniffed, thirsting for the clean cool air of the fields. A Bishop from the Ducal entourage turned to the Duke. "Your Grand Ducal Highness, the Country of Treisenburg is primarily a theocratic kingdom, run by a Pope-King and heads the Catholic Faith of Stormark. His Most Catholic Majesty, King Camillus I is head of state and of government and he is married to Her Most Serene Majesty, Queen Aoife." "Oh ! Aoife ! They have a union of marriage ? Gosh, We had forgotten." The Grand Duke pushed open the crushed velvet curtain ever so slightly to observe the oncoming columns of the guard of honour. HALT ! A shout rent the air. "In the name of His Majesty's Government, I demand that you state your name and business." A young Colonel was bellowing at the top of his voice, sat astride a vast stallion of the deepest shade of mahogany." The soldiers of the Grand Ducal entourage had formed a line of defense, with rifle raised, but they suddenly parted. A figure, wearing the uniform of the Colonel in Chief of the Knights of the Blessed Virgin and the Sabre of the Defense of the Faith came cantering forward and stopped. "We are the Grand Duke and Prince of Riskai-Nidarosia. Who are you?" The Colonel shifted uneasily in his seat. "I am the Colonel of Your Grand Ducal Highnesses escort. With Your permission, we will leave for the City of Treisen and for the Court of the King." The Grand Duke turned his horse to return to the carriage he had originally inhabited. He turned his body only slightly to give the order to march on. The entire entourage moved simulatneously, towards the City of Light. The State Visit of the Grand Duke had begun.

  10. The Imperial Summer Ball

    * The elegant carriage with the Grand Ducal insignia, drew up to the magnificent marble steps of the Imperial Palace. Outside, the navy blue and gold clad footmen marched to the side door of the cabin. One of the white gloved hands shot out and with force opened the velvet backed door. Inside, The Grand Duke got up. He was wearing the uniform of the Field Marshal of Grand Ducal Armies and his breast was covered in an assortment of orders and medals - most prominently, the Order of the Seraph of the Holy Mount and the Order of the Brazen Bull. His gloved hand, clasped around his golden sabre, the other gently waving at the crowds outside. The entire entourage came out of the carriage. The Grand Duke was followed by a host of minor nobility, and several carriages of clergy appeared, dressed most eloquently and richly. On his way in, the Grand Duke embraced The Emperor, The Queen of Dun Gail Dara and the other members of nobility. The Grand Duke was told about Vilhelm. According to the spy sources, Vilhelm was the same Vilhelm who headed the betraying army that deposed the Earl of Branno in the destructive Wars against the Eorltheod. His courtiers were told to mingle and discover more. In the meantime, the Grand Duke found a grand chair to sit in near a sumptuous winter rosebush and began to sip at his delicate crystalline champagne.*
