Recital of the Laws of Stormark

Recommended Posts

The Law Speaker of the Althing, Lady Aoife the Celt, is walking up the Law Rock to deliver the annual Foundation Day Recital of the Laws of Stormark as required by Article 2 of the Law Rock Address Statute. She is holding, just like last year, a little girl of noble birth called Lady Ljúfvina Geirdiarfrsdottir by the hand. Lady Aoife was so impressed by Lady Ljúfvina's performance during last year’s Foundation Day Recital of the Laws of Stormark that she this year selected the little noble lady to play a part in the Recital of the Laws of Stormark again.

 

Lady Aoife is dressed in her magnificent Law Speaker's Ceremonial Garb. She is also wearing the Insignia of the Grand and Glorious Imperial Order of the Two Silver Longships, an ancient Celtic Circlet, diamond earrings, and a copy of the Brísingamen. Lady Ljúfvina Geirdiarfrsdottir is dressed in the Eidskog Upphlutur costume, the traditional women's costume of the Traditional District of Eidskog, the traditional district in the Jarldom of Eidsivathing where she is hailing from. The little noble lady is also carrying a precious parchment scroll with the Titles of the Laws of the Lands of the Longships Throne.

 

Having arrived at the top of the Law Rock, Lady Aoife and Lady Ljúfvina smile and wave to the huge crowd that has gathered at the foot of the Law Rock. The crowd bursts into cheers when they see the Lady Law Speaker of the Althing and the little noble lady. She then gives Lady Aoife the parchment scroll with the Titles of the Laws of High Realm of Stormark.

 

The little noble lady then makes a couple of ancient traditional gestures to signal that the Recital of the Laws of the Lands of the Longships Throne is to commence and the crowd immediately falls silent. Lady Ljúfvina then starts to speak.

 

"Stormarkers, welcome to the Law Rock! Our ancient ancestors spoke of one thing when they built their societies: 'Med lögum skall land byggja'. That is, 'With law shall land be built.' In that spirit, the Lady Law Speaker shall now recite, in accordance with Article 2 of the Law Rock Address Statute, the Titles of the Laws of the Lands of the Longships Throne."

 

Lady Aoife then commences to speak.

Lady Ljúfvina then speaks again.

A Happy Foundation Day I wish you all. A Happy Foundation Day I wish our land, the High Realm of Stormark!"

 

Everybody down below at the foot of Law Rock burst into cheers. A huge party starts. Lady Aoife tells Lady Ljúfvina that again she has done very well and that she is very proud of her. They then walk down the Law Rock to join the partying crowd.
