A High Priestess wonders why the controlling council of the Royal Society of the Cloesíþwíf is called Cloebedd?

Your High Holiness,

 

Cloebedd means "Chloe's bed" in Anglo-Saxon. The Council of the Royal Society of the Cloesíþwíf is called Cloebedd because the idea for the Cloesíþwíf arose during a slumber party at Harvest Hall where Lady Chloe and her friends where lounging on her bed.
