There is a Queen who weaves in the sky
See how She spins, see Her finger fly


She's been before us from beginning to end
She is our mother, lover and friend


She is the weaver and we are the web
She is the needle and we are thread


Lady Frigg never leaves us on the line
Through Her Love we're always doing fine!

Lady Law Speaker, Honourable Jarls,

In the name of the Three Ladies Divine, Frigga, Freyja and Idunn, Fulltrui and Sacred Queens of the Good Lands of Valtia Reborn, from Whom all Authority in the Lands of the Longships Throne is derived, Her High Holiness the Yfirstormarksgythia and High Priestess of the Thingeyri Temple, Sigrdrífa the Priestess of the House of Vanadís, Ærkejarla of the Idunn Isles, does hereby submit this Bill to the Most Honourable Jarls in this present Althing assembled for their consideration as law:


A Bill



AN ACT CONCERNING THE AMENDMENT OF THE HIGH LAW OF THE HIGH REALM OF STORMARK TO VEST THE JARLSHIP OF THE JARLDOM OF THINGEYRI IN THE YFIRSTORMARKSGYTHIA AND HIGH PRIESTESS OF THE THINGEYRI TEMPLE.

 

Article I.

Article IV. of the Sixth Chapter of the High Law of the High Realm of Stormark shall be amended to read:

 

"Article IV.

1. The High King or High Queen in the High Council of the Realm shall be represented in each Jarldom by a Jarl appointed by Order of the High King or High Queen in the High Council of the Realm.

 

2. The Jarlship of the Imperial Jarldom of Gularike shall, however, be vested in the High King or High Queen. Likewise, the Jarlship of the Hereditary Jarldom of the Sólareyjar shall be vested in the Heir to the Imperial Longships Throne. Withal, shall the Jarlship of the Temple Jarldom of Thingeyri be vested in the Yfirstormarksgythia and High Priestess of the Thingeyri Temple.

 

3. The Jarl shall, as chief executive of the Jarldom, be responsible for the day-to-day government of the Jarldom and for implementing Imperial Law, whether Acts of the Althing, Orders-in-Council, or other Imperial Instruments, in the Jarldom.

 

4. The Jarl of Gularike shall act as Jarl-at-Large for the Jarlless Jarldoms as well as those Jarldoms where the Jarl is absent or indisposed."

 

Article II.

This Act may be cited as the Thingeyri Act of Year 13 and shall come into operation immediately after it has received the Assent of the High King in the High Council of the Realm.

Memorandum of Explanation

 

Lady Law Speaker, Honourable Jarls,

A High Priestess wishes to convey that the why and wherefore of this Bill is to vest the Jarlship of the Jarldom of Thingeyri in the Yfirstormarksgythia and High Priestess of the Thingeyri Temple, who is the Supreme Head of the Storish Ancient Ways. Likewise, is the Thingeyri Temple the senior Temple of the Storish Ancient Ways, the Customs of Worship of the Storish State.

 

Since the Thingeyri Temple is situated in the Jarldom of Thingeyri Her High Holiness is of the mind that it would be fitting and appropriate for the Supreme Head of the Storish Ancient Ways to hold the Jarlship of the Temple Jarldom.

Lady Law Speaker,

Fellow Jarls:

 

I wish to echo His Imperial and Royal Majesty in congratulating the honourable Applejarla for her first bill.

 

Overtime now, several jarldoms have been instrinsically linked with certain families or offices now. I find this intriguing and something we should expand on.

 

Perhaps this Althing should consider reinstituting a hereditary peerage with certain degrees, so petty kings will be petty kings and our high king forever high.

 

It's not a full-fledged proposal but I merely wish to point this idea out to the Althing.

 

All of this said, I move to adopt this bill by voting as soon as possible.
