The East Kingdom
The Kingdom of the East was formed from the Kingdom of the West on June 2nd, A.S. III (1968), during the reign of King Richard III and Queen La Rana.
At that time, Elfrida of Greenwalls appointed Maragon the Artificer to sit as King and Adrienne of Toldedo to sit as Queen, to preside over the first tourney and the first crown lists, whereupon the first true king would be chosen by combat.
The first crown tournament in the Kingdom of the East was held on March 21st, A.S. III (1968) in Cloves Lake Park, Staten Island, NY. Sir Bruce of Cloves won the crown tournament, with Florence of Cloves as his consort. The coronation was held on the same day, making the Kingdom of the East the second Kingdom in the Known World.
