The Wedding of:

His Imperial and Royal Highness

Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson of the House of the Descendants of Freyja

And

Her Imperial Highness

The Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion

 

With an ancient romantic folk song a Lady Singer called the bride and groom to the Wedding Table.

 

The songstress' voice was high and beckoning, and the magical fruits of her voice were accompanied by the enchanting tunes of lutes, flutes, and violins played by members of the Sovereign Household Band.

 

The spouses-to-be walked, as decreed by custom ancient beyond the memory of woman, from opposite directions to the Wedding Table. In accordance with the self-same age-old custom the bride and the groom were both accompanied by their closest relative of the opposite gender available: Storjarl Hallbjörn by his daughter His Imperial and Royal Highness Storjarla Fjǫrleif Hallbjörnsdóttir of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, and Lady Esther by her son His Imperial Highness The Lord Mirza Jonathan Merlingsson Ayreon-Kalirion.

 

The path of both the spouses-to be to the Wedding Table were lined with different Honour Guards: Storjarl Hallbjörn's route with Valiant Vixens in full ceremonial dress alternating with ladies dressed in their local Bunad who are carrying the flag of the area of the Storish Yeorlskapp they hail from, and Lady Esther's way with Norman Knights alternating with female Hurmudans in folk dresses with patterns inspired by the (former) Hurmu district they hailed from holding the banner of the self-same district.

 

The Lady High Justiciar Her Royal Highness Lady Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, was seated on the Longships Throne, which for this special occasion had been brought over from the Hall of the Fulltrui of the Vanadisarhall to the Courtyard of the ancient ruined stronghold known since time immemorial as Harald's Holdfast.

 

Speaking with the High King's Voice under Article 2 of the Second Part of the High Justiciar Act of Year 11, the aforesaid High King's Navigator and First Mate of the Longship of State will officiate at the joyous event of the being joined in matrimony of the High King's son, His Imperial and Royal Highness Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, and the aunt of the Emperor of the Natopians, Her Imperial Highness The Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion.

 

The music and singing stopped, the pairs had halted on opposite sides within hearing distance of the Wedding Table.

 

The Lady High Justiciar rose and turned to the west. "Who comes?", she asked, "Who comes before the Longships Throne?"

 

Storjarla Fjǫrleif replied: "Her Imperial and Royal Highness Fjǫrleif Hallbjörnsdóttir of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, Imperial Chieftainess of Eidsivarike, Arvjarla of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, Storjarla of Stormark, Lady Imperial on all Continents; and His Imperial and Royal Highness Hallbjörn Haraldsson of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, Imperial Chieftain of Tronderike, Arvjarl of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, Storjarl of Stormark, Lord Imperial on all Continents".

 

"Why have you come?", the Lady Royal asked.

"My deeply beloved father Hallbjörn, a man grown and ripe, comes here to be joined in matrimony by the authority of the High King", the young Lady Imperial answered.

 

The Lady High Justiciar turned to the east. "Who comes?", she asked, "Who comes before the Longships Throne?"

 

The Lord Jonathan replied: "His Imperial Highness The Lord Mirza Jonathan Merlingsson Ayreon-Kalirion, Knight of the Holy Lakes, Scion of the King of Kings; and Her Imperial Highness The Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion, Emira of Sathrati, Princess among the Lakes, Scion of the King of Kings."

 

"Why have you come?", the Lady Royal asked.

 

"My sweet mother Esther, a woman grown and widowed, comes here to be joined in matrimony by the authority of the High King", the young Lord Imperial answered.

The groom was on top of the world. Shortly Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion would be his Lady Wife! What a woman she is and what a lucky guy he would be!

 

As always High King Harald's son made quite the dashing figure. For the wedding, he has dressed in the same manner as he met his wife-to-be several weeks ago: a royal chieftain's tunic and matching breeches, both made of fine black Valtian Silk. fastened with a golden belt adorned with precious stones and in addition to the aforesaid the Insignia of the Grand and Glorious Imperial Order of the Two Silver Longships.

 

Storjarl Hallbjörn's Imperial outfit was completed with boots of brained sturgeon leather and a cape of alpine green satin lined with ermine. The cape was fastened with a golden brooch depicting Klædaská Rock, which is the ancestral hall of his Lady Mother, Storjarla Geirbjörg Gefialdrsdottir, ancestral hall on the Mysterious Isles and also serves as the sigil of the House of Utenlov, the Mysterian Archnoble House where Storjarla Geirbjörg originally hails from.

 

"I, Hallbjörn Haraldsson of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, Imperial Chieftain of Tronderike, Arvjarl of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, Storjarl of Stormark, Lord Imperial on all Continents, do hereby solemnly declare that I, solely of my own free will and in full consent of my heart, have come here to be joined in matimony with Her Imperial Highness The Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion, Emira of Sathrati, Princess among the Lakes, Scion of the King of Kings", he beamingly said.

Sitting in the audience, Emperor Edgard II and his wife Iphigenie sit and hold hands, gazing upon each other as the ceremony carries on. The Emperor whispers into his wife's ear - "My love, this reminds me so much of our own wedding in Avaricum... indeed I wish these the young couple the best." Iphigenie with tears of happiness for the couple in her eyes says "My moon, indeed, the best is yet to come for them."

Esther stood tall and happy. She was proud. Not only for her own sake -- she had after all come a long way since her fleeing the Siseran genocide in Hurmu -- but for her son, Jonathan. Jonathan lead her in. The young lad looked so proud and happy too.

She looked around in the hall. Many faces did she recognize. It pleased her greatly that so many had come, some so far, to share in the joy that she and her soon-to-be husband took part of.

She wished her father, Daniel, could have been here. He would have been honoured to see that she wore a Babkhi dress, the same dress that Daniel's paternal grandmother, Tuuler Kalirion, wore at the inauguration of Rashid Arsalani's grand viziership, years before being made both Shahanshah and Kaiser. Who could have thought it was the exact same dress? It was still as red as ever, with the traditional Shahzamini golden embroideries. And who could have thought it would be part of an imperial wedding?

Tuuler died over a hundred years ago. She would never have known Esther. She never knew Daniel even. But it was a great connexion to everything. Tuuler was a Hyperborean-Brookshirian princess, married to a Babkhan aristocrat, whose son ended up both Shah and Kaiser. His son, Daniel, in turn, was a sovereign prince of several countries, as was Daniel's son Elijah, whose both sons, Nathaniel and Naian, are in this hall today.

It felt very good that this marriage took place so close to Hurmu, the land where she was brought up. She would probably never be able to enjoy those Holy Lakes any more, polluted with sorrow and angst, but Stormark has been Hurmu's ally since time immemorial.

All felt so fitting.

"Yes, my Lady," Esther replied to Unna's question. "I have come here by my own free will and in full consent of my heart. I will marry that man."

The music started to play again: the soft tones of a single flute which played an ancient romantic tune.


"Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson of the House of the Descendants of Freyja and Lady Esther Maryam Amirdokhtar Ayreon-Kalirion, come to the fore and be joined in matrimony!", the Lady High Justiciar said.


Storjarl Hallbjörn and Lady Esther eagerly stepped forward, their eyes sparkling and their hearts pounding. Tenderly they took each other's hands and looked deeply into one another's eyes. This was the moment!


"They make such an Imperial Couple", the Lady Royal mused in her thoughts, "and they also radiate happiness beyond imagination."

Esther smiled and took the initiative to embracing her husband and kissing him, in a most regal way of course.

 

After the kiss, she gazed toward the marriage table, where the marriage contract was to be signed. The called witnesses were walking toward the table too, and soon she and her husband would sign it, and the witnesses attest.

 

What a wonderful day!

Subsequent to the Imperial Couple's first marital kiss, Storjarla Fjǫrleif approaches the newlyweds. Her Imperial and Royal Highness is carrying a red silk pillow with a wedding ring.

 

The little Lady Imperial curtsies and offers the pillow to the Imperial Couple.

 

"Here you are mommy and daddy!", she said with a big smile.

 

The proud husband and father kisses his daughter on the forehead. He then takes the wedding ring and puts it, regally as well as very tenderly, on Lady Esther's finger.

After signing the contract, with a beautiful ring on her finger, she embraced her new stepdaughter in a warm hug. She looked at her husband, smiling ever so much, and signalled for Jonathan to bring him the ring that she had made for him.

 

Yes, she had made him that ring. During her time at the mental hospital in Borgarrike, her favourite occupational therapy was goldwashing in the local stream outside hospital. She had promised herself that if she ever were able to remarry, she would bring that new husband a ring made of gold that she had washed herself.

 

Jonathan walked to Hallbjörn with the pillow with the ring on, bowed slightly, and gestures for him to put it on.

Touched into the deepest of his soul, Storjarl Hallbjörn puts the wedding ring on his finger.

 

"Oh, darling", he said, "this wedding band really means the world to me! Not only because it symblolizes our sacred matrimonial union but also that you have especially created and kept for a special occasion like this, serving as a ray of light and hope during those very dark days of your life."

 

He took Lady Esther in his arms and kissed her.

 

"Words cannot describe how fortunately I am to have you on my side as my Lady Wife!"

THREE

 

We establish a common household whose address will be in the High Realm. Our children, whether those for us only one of us is parent or for the ones that both of us may be parents to, current as well as future, will be treated in the same way by us, regardless of whether that child is the child of both of us or of only one of us.

We declare that any will or testament inconsistent with this contract must be held null and void in so far that that the inconsistency would show. Our respective titles will be inherited according to tradition and law.

 

Should any one of us die before the children reaching majority, we vow to bring the said children up as if they were our own, regardless of whether we are their parent or not.

 

SIX

 

Our marriage will only be dissolved prior to the death of one of us if dissolved under the law of the High Realm. The one of us wishing to file for divorce shall inform the other of this intention, and following three Asgard months of negotiation and attempts at reconciliation, a divorce is still sought, a filing may be performed according to law.

The Lady High Justiciar seated herself on the Longships Throne.

 

"Now that the wedding contract has been signed, it is time for speeches!", the Lady Royal said. "Is anyone volunteering to give a speech?"

Esther sat next to her son Jonathan, and he whispered to her that he had prepared a speech.

 

"You? Really?"

 

"Yes, mama, I have."

"I don't believe you" she chucked.

 

But to her surprise, her eleven-year-old son stood up. Somehow, some guard put him on the wedding table so all could see.

 

Jonathan spoke loudly so everyone could hear, without microphones. Acoustics in the courtyard were good!

 

 

Your Majesties,
your Royal and Imperial Highnesses,
your Graces,
your Excellencies,
My Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am so happy to speak before you today. To my mother, I want to give all my love for as long as either of us shall live. For the scars on her soul after she fled Hurmu during the evil and terrors of the Siseran genocide, I was in her belly. She brought me here. She protected me. She saved my life before I was even born. And she raised me. Never did her sickness in any way stop her from loving me in the most greatest way possible.

I wish to turn to my new stepfather. While he probably is closer to me in age than to my mother, he is a strong man, a noble man, and man of great honour and integrity. I am proud to be living under his and my mother's shared roof. I look forward to getting to know him, and his wonderful daughter, much more in the years to come.

And while we are all here sitting, drinking (non-alcoholic for me, of course), laughing and enjoying ourselves, I will share with you a confession. I am a historical nerd.

I couldn't help but noticing that one way or another now, the High King is related to every single royal on Micras! He is the brother of the Alexandrian emperor, and his daughter-in-law hails from Babkhan, Hurmudanic and Shirerithian lines. Should the newly married couple have a child, I would not only have a brother or a sister, but that child's cousin would be, like my own, the Natopian emperor!

Three cheers for the husband and wife!
