The splendid Crown Tourney is now over - the combatants fought valiantly, and the consorts glowed in the spring sunshine. In the end Duke Sven Gunnarsson was unbeaten through the tourney and could once again place the Crown Princess' coronet on his consort Countess Siobhan inghean uí Liathíin's brow.
Some photo albums from the event:
A stunning lake, a castle, a very nice castle, banners flowing in the soft spring wind, beautiful ladies strolling in the small park, a list, a herald's flamboyant voice, shiny armour on expectant fighters, tense consorts in front row seats and a noble King and Queen looking upon it all - it is time for Crown tournament!
The mastodon tusk, the set of copperplates of the Sarcophagus of St. Henry, a suit of armour manufactured in the Ashikaga-shogunate and other truly remarkable objects are found in the castle. Can a picture
do an object justice? We say Nay.
As with any castle of rank, this one has tales, and as you all know, a tale is best told at its original place. Tales like the one about The Screaming Drum, The Ghost-ladies Stuart, Ristell and the Royal Moose
can be read about, but could one feel the full extent of the stories at other places, we say Nay.
Would crossing oceans, climbing the highest mountains, travelling through vast unknown forests, paying a slightly higher site fee, be enough to stop you from coming to a truly unique event? We say Nay.
Will the pictures do the event justice? Will the stories make you feel the atmosphere? Can you afford
to miss a truly unique event?
A stunning lake, a castle, a very nice castle, banners flowing in the soft spring wind. It is time, the time for you to register for the event...
The event will be held at Rockelstad Slott
about two hours south of Stockholm, very close to the Ryan Air international airport Skavsta.
