Populace Information

From the Kingdom Email Archives:
"I was the last person to be inducted into the Order of the Madonnas of Ansteorra, before the Order was closed forever. At the time, other than Princess Katerina who was the Principal of the Order, I was the only person in the Order that did not have their own child or children. It was for the work that I did with Simon and Tessa's children, along with many others, that I received this award.

This was also way before we had the Ministry of Children.

I have watched these children grow, and I have suffered the loss of these children. But I like to think that I made their experiences in the Society happy and safe ones.

The recognition that has meant the most to me has not been done in court, but in Word Fame from my friends throughout the Kingdom. This will always mean more to me than any piece of jewelry that tarnishes or a scroll that will yellow with age.
