The Golden Swan event is held annually by Appledoreshire and is a series of examinations designed to test the extent of a lady's persona. Tests include clothing, times and customs, entertainment or bardic skills, needlework and handcrafts, and a number of other areas. The tests are stringent, and less than half of the applicants are successful. The event is for female personas only, but there is one male Golden Swan who tested with a female persona.
