Ásts Stora Ævintýri: Betrothal of King Noah of Elwynn and Grand Duchess Noor of Goldshire

Yesterday, very shortly after the obtaining of the consent for their union from His Imperial and Royal Majesty the High King of Stormark, the Princess of Anun, Her Riverine Highness Princess Fjǫrleif Llængjarla of the Houses of Ayreon-Kalirion and of the Descendants of Freyja, announced, on behalf of the White Orchid Throne and the Golden Hovercat Throne, the betrothal of His Riverine Majesty King Thorstein Noah of Elwynn and Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Noor bint Daniyal Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati of Goldshire.


The engagement tidings of the Imperial Couple were very well-received and from all over Micras and beyond congratulations and well-wishes started to pour in and as the day progressed they swelled into a true tidal wave of congratulatory messages which nearly overwhelmed staffers at the various Imperial and Royal Palaces and Castles at which King Thorstein Noah of Elwynn and Grand Duchess Noor of Goldshire live.


King Thorstein Noah has - just like many an other member of the House of Orchids, the Royal Family of the Elwynnese Union - had a crush on the Lady Noor, who a short while ago won the Golden Hovercat Throne of Goldshire in single combat, and made several attempts to win her heart and hand in marriage, which she politely graciously and rejected, deeeming His Riverine Majesty too young for her. However, the young King persisted and quite recently she finally gave in and accepted his marriage proposal.


It has been planned that the wedding ceremony is to take place later this year at Cashma House on Cashma Island. The latter is an island which is situated in Lakkvia, the Craitish part of the Lake District of Hurmu. Due to the planned wedding site, the blessing of the King of Craitland has been asked and His Majesty has also been invited to become one of the signee-witnesses to King Thorstein Noah’s and Grand Duchess Noor’s marriage contract.


The venue of Cahsma Island has been because it is a neutral location, being neither in Elwynn nor in Goldshire, to which both of the future spouses have - the two of them being partially of Hurmadaic descent - significant ties. Another advantage of the venue is that it enjoys the legal and territorial status of a Storish Embassy under Article 8 of the Lake District Treaty between the High Realm of Stormark and the Kingdom of Craitland, and therefore any legal disputes that may arise concerning the aforementioned marriage contract can be dealth with by the independent Storish judiciary.


For King Thorstein Noah this will be his first marriage and for the Grand Duchess Noor her second, she previously having been married - until they divorced - to the late Prince Nathaniel of Natopia, an Emir of Sathrati as well as a former sovereign Prince of Elwynn himself.


The wedding ceremony will be in accordance with the rites of the Temple of the Lakes, at Haraldsborg, the foremost temple of the Hurmudaic Faith. It will be performed by Sir Vilhjálm Kormak, who is the Chairman of the Council of Elders of the Temple of the aforesaid temple.
