On September 17 - 18 1977 at the Aten Warlord Tourney, once again at Camp Burnett in the Steppes the Crown of Atenveldt, Ton and Elizabeth announced that the Region of Ansteorra was now the Principality of Ansteorra.
May it Please Their Royal Majesties of Atenveldt and Their Serene Highnesses of the Body Corporate. By this docu- ment do we lay befor You a matter which is great in the hearts of our people, and beg that it shall not fall upon deaf ears. Having fulfilled those things required by the Corpora and Aten Law, we the people of the Region of Ansteorra do make formal and public petition to be granted the status of Principality. It is with joy and confidence that we stand upon the firm ground of our record of service and fidelity, both to this Kingdom of Atenveldt, and to those ideals which are our common banner. The Region of Ansteorra has done much towards the establishing of culture and well-founded tradition for the people within the borders of her demesne, while adhering to those esteemed institutions which were the cradle gift of Atenveldt, her well-beloved Lord. Therefore, trusting to the bounty of those whose station it is to guide our path, we remain the loyal subjects of the Crown of Atenveldt, and proud citi- zens of the Region of Ansteorra, this New-Years day, Anno Societatis XII Koris Natterhelm K.S.C.A O.C.B.
