As Prince & Princess
January 13, 2020
Greetings Ansteorra! We had a fantastic time this weekend at Crown Tournament, getting to see so many of our friends and family. We are very excited to be the new Prince and Princess of this Great Kingdom and want to thank all the fighters for their skill and the honor they showed throughout the day, the consort for their inspiration, the support we received from so many people, and the autocrats for all their hard work. We look forward to working with the Crown and serving this awesome Kingdom. YIS, Jason & Margherita III, Prince & Princess Ansteorra.

Greetings Ansteorra! Here is the format for the King’s Champion Tourney. All fighters are encouraged to attend and fight. This is a great opportunity to test your skill against a wide range of combatants.
The Format will be:
Bring your best.
1 hour round robin.
Fighters will be lined up in 2 equal lines facing each other.
You will fight single point against the person across from you.
The person on the end of A will then go to Side B
The person on the opposite end of Side B will go to Side A
The net effect of this will be that the person that is rotating to the other side will now fight the person that was standing to their Left. This creates a circular motion for the fighters.
This process will continue for a full hour. If anyone needs to take a break they can but the fighting will continue.
Those fighters that do not wish to compete for the King’s Champion Title will just notify the Lyst mistress. All Knights are encouraged to attend the Lyst and fight if able. The Tourney will be over prior to Step Down Court. This will allow everyone to participate in the day’s activities.
March 2020 Black Star
Greetings Ansteorra! We are so excited and quite surprised by the opportunity to serve the Kingdom once again. We will be working with Their Royal Majesties during the next couple of months to help them in any way we can while we prepare for the future of Ansteorra. We are so proud of Ansteorra, the officers, and the people of this great Kingdom. And it humbles us to be able to be a part of this Dream and Adventure with each of you. We have so many friends across the Kingdom and look forward to spending time with them and to making many new friends. As much as Their Majesties travel and with all the travel that we do, it’s still not possible for us to see all the wonderful things that people do and make. We need your help! We need award recommendations for all those people you see doing and making things to make Ansteorra Awesome! We look forward to seeing each of you at upcoming events in the near future. YIS, Jason and Margherita, Prince and Princess of Ansteorra
As King & Queen
May 10, 2020
Greetings Ansteorra: We are excited about our new beginning! When we became Prince and Princess for our wonderful Kingdom we were planning on business as usual and a normal reign and that we would know what we were doing and how to do it . WOW, we were in for a Surprise! We were just like everyone else, we were not sure what to do or how to do it. We have been fortunate as a Kingdom, as Prince and Princess, and now as King and Queen to have so many people all over the Kingdom that want to help. People have stepped up from everywhere saying, “Hey, I know how to do ABC, let me help set this up and do it”; Fighters have been making training videos, Artisans have been doing online classes, service minded people are doing on-line classes, many organizations and groups are doing online meetings, get togethers, and even events! Thank you to everyone that has been pitching in and helping. This is a new and exciting time! In the upcoming weeks (through the end of June) we will be having Court every week! Some weeks we will be working with a Virtual Event that is being held, if there is no Virtual Event we will still have Court. We already have things planned for every Court! We look forward to working with everyone, trying new things, learning, and having fun. In service to the Dream, Jason & Margherita III, King & Queen Ansteorra
Ansteorra! We love traditions, one of those traditions is the love, support, and confidence that is shown when people swear an Oath of Service or Fealty. Only certain people and positions are required to swear an Oath, most of the people that swear an Oath do it because they want to. In order to give people a chance to swear their Oaths we have come up with a plan and a schedule. Starting this coming Saturday, May 16th, we will have a Virtual Royal Court in connection with The Baron & Baroness of NorthKeep. Court will begin at 4pm and will first feature the Oaths of Fealty from the Landed B&Bs of Ansteorra. In the coming weeks we are planning for the following Courts - these may change:
May 23rd - (Steppes Virtual Event) Knights and Master of Arms that choose to
May 30th - Laurels, that choose to
June 6th - (King’s College Virtual Event) Pelicans, that choose to
June 13th - Masters of Defense, that choose to
June 20th - White Scarves, that choose to
We are working on plans for more things so stay tuned and watch for news!
In Service to the Dream,
Jason & Margherita III
King & Queen, Ansteorra

Jason and I would like to thank Their Excellencies, Beorhlic Folcwineson and Elisaveta af Isefjord for their time and service to the Barony of Northkeep and Ansteorra. They will be stepping down as Baron and Baroness of Northkeep at their Castellan event on June 26, 2021. We are happy to announce that the next Baron and Baroness of Northkeep will be Lord Perrin de Beaujeu and Honorable Lady Jehanne de Montauban. Their Investiture will be at the same Castellan event as the step down of the current Baron and Baroness of Northkeep. We look forward to working with them to continue the growth and prosperity of Northkeep and Ansteorra.

June 5, 2021: Myrgenfeld Colleigum / Royal Huntsman
Thank you all who came out to the first in person event at Myrgenfeld Collegium. It was wonderful being able to see people and talk with everyone. We held our Royal Huntsman where Laird/Lady Johanna Buchanan did an awesome job running a skillful and fun shoot. Thank you, Jonaya, for all the time/work you put in as Duke Sven Randullsson and Countess Cristyana Lambrecht's Royal Huntsman and for the time as our Royal Huntsman, and we look forward to seeing you at future events. Our new Royal Huntsman is Raulff Smeithberde - we look forward to having you with us and working with you for the rest of our Reign!
June 13, 2021: Queen's Champion
Yesterday was an amazing day. I want to thank everyone who was part of my Day. I received many gifts, that were appreciated. I was able to talk with each of the fighters/consorts. I was able to watch many amazing fights. I want to thank Hellsgate for putting on a wonderful event. I want to thank the Legion of Swashbucklers for being there for me. The White Scarf and MoDs that were there and spoke with me all day long. Thank you to entourage who kept up with both His Majesty and myself. Thank you to Jason Drysdale for the kind words in court.
There were many tears shed as we celebrated being back together and getting to pay special tribute to Don Tivar. Though he is gone he will never be forgotten!
I was happy to see so many fighters doing so well and impressing so many people. Throughout the day I received words of deeds and prowess and got to witness fighters doing their best. Special thanks to Master Robin of Gilwell who helped with planning things and speaking with me, he fought well and also received the Queen's Blade of Honor, I am proud of what he did and how he represented the community. Congratulations to my new Queen's Champion, Don Lorenzo Baglioni d'Aosta! I enjoyed watching you fight and I appreciate your willingness to serve!
Thank you to all who joined us this day! It was an awesome day! Thank you all for being there and helping to make the Dream come to Life!
