Emprise of the Black Lion

September 13, 2013 to September 15, 2013

King County, WA

Autocrat: Guillaume de Garrigues device5811OP

Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye....

... let all people of An Tir, and of all the known kingdoms, who are not banished or enemies of the King our lord, know that there will be a great festival of arms and a very noble tourney, both mounted, on foot and of archery, with crests, banners and horses covered with the arms of the noble tourneyers, as is the ancient custom, hosted by the very noble and very powerful Barony of Madrone and Barony of Wyewood...

... and this tourney, known as the Emprise of the Black Lion XII, will be held on Saturday, September 14, at the place called Reber Ranch in the city of Kent, Washington.

Complete your tournament season in style at An Tir's grandest event for equestrian pageantry and historically inspired tournaments.  On Saturday the 14th there will be three parallel tournaments (equestrian, archery, and armored combat on foot) all inspired by the 1460 treatise of René of Anjou, overseen by four noble judges.

Please note that this is not a camping event, although staying on site in RV's / horse trailers is permissible.
