Coronation of HIM the Empress Asa

Recommended Posts

The Althing has been assembled, it's membership and visitors chatting quietly with their neighbors. The Emperor of Stormark, flanked on his right by an empty chair and his left by His Imperial Highness, The Crown Prince Thorfinn. Standing just in front and to the left of the Emperor, is the Sultan of Hatay, Islamic Mufti and famed Religious Leader. The large doors to the Althing are flung open, and as the crowd grows silent, a young Page enters.

 

"Your Imperial Majesty, I present Her Highness Asa, Imperial Princess of Inis Meáin, Dame Companion of the Grand and Glorious Imperial Order of the Two Silver Longships"

 

The Page steps aside, and the Princess Asa walks into the Hall, with a member of the Imperial Life Guard escorting her on either side. The Emperor stands upon seeing the Princess, as Prince Thorfinn issues the command to all present to stand. Those in attendance rise in unison, facing toward the center as they watch the Princess walking past. She stops in front of the Emperor and Crown Prince, where she courtsies with a slow and humble purpose. The Emperor and Crown Prince return the gesture with low bows, at which point the Sultan of Hatay steps forward and takes the Princess' hand, leading her up a short set of stairs, and facing her toward the Althing.

 

He hands her his personal copy of the Holy Qu'ran, and asks her: Is your Imperial Highness willing to take the Oath?

 

At her affirmative reply, the Sultan recites: Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim, In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

Your Highness, will you, in the presence of the all-seeing, and those present here today, swear to govern the Peoples of the Magnificent, Glorious, Illustrious and Indivisible Viking Empire of Stormark, its Possessions and the other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs? And will you further swear to utilise your power in the cause of Law and Justice, with Mercy, to be executed in all your judgements? And will you

to the utmost of your power maintain the Iman of Allah and the true profession of the most Holy Qu'ran?

The Sultan then says: In the name of Allah, and with the authority granted me by His Imperial Majesty, Harald Thorstein I the Generous Giver by the Grace of the Viking Law Sovereign Viking Emperor of the Viking Empire of Stormark and by the Grace of Other High Laws of His Other Realms and Colonies King, hereby present the Princess Asa for Coronation.

 

The Emperor steps forward, as the Princess kneels, still facing the Althing. His Majesty holds aloft the crown of the Empress, and while placing it on her head, proclaims:

 

"I hereby declare you to be Her Imperial Majesty, The Empress Asa, Empress Companion of Stormark, Imperial Princess of Inis Meáin. As I say it...so shall it be!!"

 

The Empress now rises, and faces the Emperor, who pays homage to her by bowing first, as does the Crown Prince Thorfinn. The Emperor then takes the hand of the Empress, and leads her back down the aisle, as those present in the Althing pay homage by bowing slightly as they pass out of sight.
