Introduction

Chosen each year at a competition. They are charged with commemorating the history of the Crowns and the kingdom in song and story, furthering the practice of the bardic arts in the kingdom, serving as members of the royal household, and setting up and supervising the competition to choose their successors. The King's Bard wears a gold baldric with three purple clarions; the Queen's Bard wears a gold baldric with three purple clarions below a purple rose. They hold the honorary position of Ollaves in the Royal College of Bards (the highest of three rankings -- one clarion per rank). The positions of King's and Queen's Bard were added to kingdom law on February 3, A.S. 24, in the reign of Horic and Lea, although Queen's Bard dates at least as far back as the reign of Gavin I and Tamera, and the first King's Bard may have been made around A.S. 16-17.
