Notes from York / Marriage of Anne and Pero
« on: 13 May, 2019, 10:56:05 PM »
Fabiotto Borgia had already been to York when York belonged to Prussia.
This time he would return there in the name of the Grand Duke of Cyrene, since he had reached an agreement to acquire the city.
Together with Andrea L'enigmista, Filippo Foscari, Koray Yilmaz, Fabio Spazzoli and Alessandro Borgia, Fabiotto Borgia and the others would simply have to take possession of the city and see what would have been done.
There, however, the group of Cyreneic soldiers met a mysterious hermit. A giant who called himself the guardian of the city of York.
His name is Grunttgh Ogrearm, and despite several calls for no resistance, he decided to fight.
Relations with Grunttgh Ogrearm have been friendly all the time, and Cyrene's soldiers have decided to respect his will to take sides in battle.
To show their respect, Grunttgh Ogrearm received care from the Imam of Cyrene as well as some gifts after he fault in battle.
Now in York stands a beautiful Palace of the Gran Imam. Their hope and perhaps their mission is to bring their belief, their faith, where it never arrived.
Fabiotto Borgia has met some important people and forged a bond of friendship and respect.
He left the city of York for several days to profess and make his faith known in neighboring cities.
Some people listened to him interested.
Fabiotto knows well that he is a humble servant of the One Who Must Not Be Named, and he knows well that the will of the One Who Must Not Be Named is to leave free choice to man on earth.
Fabiotto does not impose his choices on anyone. Everyone is free to choose. And Fabiotto is free to hope ... to believe!
Now Fabiotto has returned to York to pray, awaiting orders from his Grand Duke.
But as a free man.
As a mystical man.

Fabiotto Borgia era già stato a York quando York apparteneva alla Prussia.
Questa volta sarebbe tornato lì in nome del Gran Duca di Cyrene, visto che aveva raggiunto un accordo per l'acquisizione della città.
Insieme a  Andrea L'enigmista,  Filippo Foscari, Koray Yilmaz, Fabio Spazzoli e Alessandro Borgia, Fabiotto Borgia e gli altri avrebbero dovuto semplicemente prendere possesso della città e verificare cosa ci sarebbe stato da fare.
Lì però, il gruppo di soldati cireneici hanno incontrato un misterioso eremita. Un gigante che si definiva guardiano della città di York.
Il suo nome è Grunttgh Ogrearm, e nonostante i diversi inviti a non opporre resistenza, ha deciso di combattere.
I rapporti con Grunttgh Ogrearm sono stati tutto il tempo amichevoli, e i soldati di Cyrene hanno deciso di rispettare il suo volere di schierarsi in battaglia.
Per dimostrare il loro rispetto, Grunttgh Ogrearm ha ricevuto le cure dall'Imam di Cyrene oltre che ad alcuni regali.
Ora a York sorge un Palazzo del Grande Imam bellissimo. La loro speranza e forse la loro missione è portare il loro credo, la loro fede, lì dove non è mai arrivata.
Fabiotto Borgia ha conosciuto alcune persone importanti stringendo un legame di amicizia e rispetto.
Ha lasciato per diversi giorni la città di York per professare e far conoscere la sua fede nelle città vicine.
Alcune persone lo ascoltavano interessate.
Fabiotto sa bene di essere un umile servitore di Colui che non deve essere nominato, e sa bene che il volere di Colui che non deve essere nominato è quello di lasciare libera scelta all'uomo in terra.
Fabiotto non impone le sue scelte a nessuno. Ognuno è libero di scegliere. E Fabiotto è libero di sperare.. di credere!
Ora Fabiotto è tornato a York a pregare, in attesa di ordini del suo Gran Duca.
Ma da uomo libero.
Da uomo mistico.

The orders of the Grand Duke had not been long in coming, and Fabiotto left York.
He knew that from that day a new life would envelop York.
Before setting sail, he warmly greeted Syria Young and Anne de Courtney that they would stay there and all the other friends he would soon meet in Cyrene. He also greeted the York Hermit, several Englishmen who were there and his new Scottish friends who had embraced the mystical faith.
Fabiotto was sure that no one better than these two Cyreneic lionesses, Anne and Syria, could manage this city so far from the capital.
After all, who would have to take care of York, would have had to put commitment and enthusiasm, otherwise that long journey would have been useless for all of them.
The next stop was Brandenburg, Kingdom of Bohemia.
It seems that the Bohemian king has granted the citizens of Brandenburg to follow the mystical faith.
There he would meet his old friend Konrad Einhart and meet new people, but before reaching the ambitious Bohemian city, Fabiotto decided to take a small break, and when he crossed the channel that connected the British island with the continent he stopped in France.
Fabiotto decided to head towards the tavern and it was with great joy that he saw his old friend Pero Anes playing cards.
Fabiotto had a great time in the period that Pero Anes lived in Cyrene. Sometimes He was a gambler and  sometimes not, but he wasn't sick of gambling, he did it only because he knew he had a special card-playing ability. His lotteries were famous, and there are many markets in Europe where everyone can find his tickets for sale. Pero Anes is also a poet and a writer.
There is little to turn around: the talent of Pero Anes has made him one of the most famous people in Europe, demonstrating that celebrity is not reached only with power or strength, but with the intellect.
The two greeted each other warmly and between a glass of wine and another, Fabiotto told him about York, Carrick, the Hermit of York and Brandenburg.
And then he told him about Anne de Courtney, left in York to be the Vassal.




Gli ordini del Gran Duca non si erano fatti attendere molto, e Fabiotto lasciò York.
Sapeva che da quel giorno una nuova vita avrebbe avvolto York.
Prima di salpare, salutò calorosamente Syria Young e Anne de Courtney che sarebbero rimaste lì e tutti gli altri amici che avrebbe incontrato presto a Cyrene. Salutò anche l'Eremita di York , diversi inglesi che erano lì ed i suoi nuovi amici scozzesi che avevano abbracciato la fede mistica.
Fabiotto era sicuro che nessuno meglio di queste due leonesse cireneiche , Anne e Syria , avrebbe potuto amministrare questa città così lontana dalla capitale.
In fondo, chi si sarebbe dovuto occupare di York, avrebbe dovuto metterci impegno ed entusiasmo, altrimenti quel lungo viaggio sarebbe stato inutile per tutti loro.
La prossima tappa era Brandeburgo, Regno di Boemia.
Sembra che il re boemo abbia concesso ai cittadini di Brandeburgo di seguire la fede mistica.
Lì avrebbe incontrato il suo vecchio amico Konrad Einhart e avrebbe conosciuto nuove persone, ma prima di raggiungere l'ambiziosa città boema, Fabiotto decise di prendersi una piccolissima pausa, e quando attraversò il canale che univa l'isola britannica con il continente si fermò in Francia.
Fabiotto puntò deciso verso la taverna e fu con molta gioia che vide il suo vecchio amico Pero Anes che giocava a carte.
Fabiotto si divertì molto nel periodo che Pero Anes visse a Cyrene. Era un giocatore, d'azzardo e non, ma non era malato del gioco di azzardo, lo faceva soltanto perchè sapeva di avere una abilità speciale nel gioco delle carte. Le sue lotterie erano celebri, e sono tanti i mercati in Europa dove si possono trovare i suoi biglietti in vendita. Pero Anes è anche un poeta e uno scrittore.
C'è poco da girarsi intorno: il talento di Pero Anes ha fatto di lui una delle persone più famose in Europa, a dimostrazione che la celebrità non si raggiunge soltanto con il potere o con la forza, ma con l'intelletto.
I due si salutarono calorosamente e tra un calice di vino e l'altro, Fabiotto gli raccontò di York , di Carrick , dell'Eremita di York e di Brandeburgo.
E poi gli raccontò di Anne de Courtney, rimasta a York per esserne il Vassallo.

Anne had befriended Pero during her time in Cyrene. They had talked much about their desire to promote peace so that trade could flourish again. Anne also became a client of Pero's bank and took out a small loan to fund her carpentry business, but after a while they started to lose touch with each other. Anne went to York, but Pero went to France. Anne had even heard rumours that Pero was seeking after a french wife ...

Anne aveva stretto amicizia con Pero durante la sua permanenza a Cirene. Avevano parlato molto del loro desiderio di promuovere la pace in modo che il commercio potesse rifiorire. Anne divenne anche cliente della banca di Pero e prese un piccolo prestito per finanziare la sua attività di falegnameria, ma dopo un po 'iniziarono a perdere il contatto tra loro. Anne andò a York, ma Pero andò in Francia. Anne aveva persino sentito dire che Pero stava cercando una moglie francese ...

Each morning Anne stood waiting at the harbour of York as passengers arrived in York. She had a keen interest in commerce and keeping track of visiting merchants, but now she a more personal reason for watching the ships. Pero had agreed to visit her in York.

This morning, 4th June, 1319, Pero arrived in York. Anne ran to greet him, showering him with hugs and kisses.

"Welcome to York! Come and see everything. I will send your bags on up the castle."

Ogni mattina Anne stava aspettando al porto di York mentre i passeggeri arrivavano a York. Aveva un vivo interesse per il commercio e teneva traccia dei mercanti in visita, ma ora era una ragione più personale per guardare le navi. Pero aveva accettato di farle visita a York.

Questa mattina, 4 giugno, Pino arrivò a York nel 1319. Anne corse a salutarlo, facendogli una doccia con abbracci e baci.

"Benvenuto a York, vieni a vedere tutto, manderò i tuoi bagagli sul castello".

Pero had travelled a long way through the sometimes harsh sometimes soft paths of life to find both fulfillment and affection. Along the way, he had met bright and generous friends like Fabiotto - Cupid's witty helper... - and some others.

Pero was born in Alenquer (Central Portugal) in 1293, the son of Rui Anes, a squire, and Maria do Amparo, the best baker in her village.

He came to Lisbon, the capital of the kingdom, in the arms of my mother and grew up there and I learned Latin and Greek in a theological college.

After having served Duarte Vaz de Lisboa (1316, former Viscount of Odrin and Marquis de Slesvig) as a pagemen and helper in the care of his old books and parchments, he decided to become a muleteer and to sell rare and luxurious articles.

But on November 24 and 25, 1317, as he was traveling through the lands of Normandy and France, he had the idea of writing and began to compose the Book of Beasts inspired by the reading of some fine and illustrated books and manuscripts. In this same step, he decided to gather all those who cherish the old parchments and found the Order of the Serpent, whose objective is to congregate the lovers and the patrons of knowledge and the literature.

And in December of that same year of 1317, at the invitation of the Csar of Bulgaria, the late Theodor I, he went to this distant realm to return to the legacy of my master. But as Fortune sometimes contradicts and displeases us, casting us in other ways, he went and became Vassal of Durazzo, in the Great Despotato of Epirus and Albania, under two kings and two adverse kingdoms. The Despot Matteo I also gave his mercy by investing him with the responsibility of administering the Royal Chancellery and representing him in the affairs of the kingdom with the foreigner countries.

On 22 October 1318, with the fall of Durazzo / Durres in Hungarian hands, the dethronement of Matteo I and the loss of his position as vassal, he decided to roam through an Europe torn by wars and earn his livelihood freely. To that end, he chose (and was chosen) to be a subject of the Grand Duke of Cyrenaica, Ezzelino da Romano, because this nation is one of the most peaceful in Europe.

It was during this time that he met his bride, the fair Lady Anne, when they created a lobby group to influence regents towards peace and free trade (The Brotherwood of Concord/Council of Peace). Also during these interesting months, Pero Anes founded The Anes Bank - and lent money to his current bride, his only customer! (laugh) Unfortunately, this kind of service is still poorly understood in Medieval Europe and it was closed down.

But Cyrenaica was also devastated shortly afterwards by the violence of war and looting without justification. In vain he tried to bring together the believers of the Theological Church and their monarchs under the banner of the Supreme Pontiff of Rome (Alexander VII) against the prussian and Russo-Ukrainian invaders. However, Cyrene and Sicily also fell under the patriarchal sword. Cyrene was conquered and plundered - and the believers of Teos were debating in their confused disunity. The disappointment was so great that he lost faith in Theos and abandoned it's church - and subsequently the Great Theological Order of the Knights of the Mediterranean. Some time later (April 1319), after having converted to the mystical faith, he abandoned the Grand Duchy without joy or resentment and became a subject of the Kingdom of France after roaming, once again, the vast lands of Europe.

Nowadays, apart from tending the flower of affection which has started to grow in his heart, he founded the Royal Library of France, where is displayed his collection of rare ilustrated parchements, and, in April 1319, he founded the Merchant Guild - where he unites the leaders of other groups of merchants and craftsmen.


Pero aveva percorso una lunga strada attraverso i percorsi a volte dure a volte morbidi della vita per trovare sia la soddisfazione che l'affetto. Lungo la strada, aveva incontrato amici brillanti e generosi come Fabiotto - l'arguto aiutante di Cupido ... - e alcuni altri.

Pero nacque ad Alenquer (Portogallo centrale) nel 1293, figlio di Rui Anes, uno scudiero, e Maria do Amparo, il miglior fornaio del suo villaggio.

Venne a Lisbona, la capitale del regno, tra le braccia di mia madre e crebbe lì e imparai il latino e il greco in un collegio teologico.

Dopo aver servito Duarte Vaz de Lisboa (1316, ex visconte di Odrin e Marchese de Slesvig) come paguari e aiutante nella cura dei suoi vecchi libri e pergamene, decise di diventare un mulattiere e di vendere articoli rari e lussuosi.

Ma il 24 e il 25 novembre 1317, mentre stava viaggiando attraverso le terre della Normandia e della Francia, ebbe l'idea di scrivere e cominciò a comporre il Libro degli Bestie ispirato dalla lettura di alcuni pregi e libri illustrati e manoscritti. In questo stesso passo, ha deciso di riunire tutti coloro che hanno a cuore le vecchie pergamene e hanno trovato l'Ordine del Serpente, il cui obiettivo è quello di radunare gli amanti e i mecenati della conoscenza e della letteratura.

E nel dicembre dello stesso anno del 1317, su invito dello zar di Bulgaria, il defunto Teodoro I, si recò in questo regno lontano per tornare all'eredità del mio maestro. Ma come la Fortuna talvolta contraddice e ci dispiaci, gettandoci in altri modi, andò e divenne Vassallo di Durazzo, nel Grande Despotato dell'Epiro e dell'Albania, sotto due re e due regni avversi. Anche il despota Matteo I ha dato la sua misericordia investendolo della responsabilità di amministrare la Cancelleria Reale e di rappresentarlo negli affari del regno con i paesi stranieri.

Il 22 ottobre 1318, con la caduta di Durazzo / Durres in mani ungheresi, la detronizzazione di Matteo I e la perdita della sua posizione di vassallo, decise di vagare per un'Europa dilaniata da guerre e guadagnarsi da vivere liberamente. A tal fine, scelse (e fu scelto) di essere un soggetto del Granduca della Cirenaica, Ezzelino da Romano, perché questa nazione è una delle più pacifiche d'Europa.

Fu durante questo periodo che incontrò la sua sposa, la bella Lady Anne, quando creò un gruppo di lobby per influenzare i reggenti verso la pace e il libero scambio (The Brotherwood of Concord / Council of Peace). Anche durante questi mesi interessanti, Pero Anes ha fondato The Anes Bank - e ha prestato denaro alla sua attuale moglie, il suo unico cliente! (ride) Sfortunatamente, questo tipo di servizio è ancora poco conosciuto nell'Europa medievale e fu chiuso.

Ma la Cirenaica fu anche devastata poco dopo dalla violenza della guerra e dai saccheggi senza giustificazione. Invano ha cercato di riunire i credenti della Chiesa teologica e dei loro monarchi sotto la bandiera del Sommo Pontefice di Roma (Alessandro VII) contro gli invasori prussiani e russo-ucraini. Tuttavia, anche Cirene e la Sicilia caddero sotto la spada patriarcale. Cirene fu conquistato e saccheggiato - e i credenti di Teos stavano discutendo nella loro disunità confusa. La delusione fu così grande che perse la fiducia in Theos e abbandonò la sua chiesa - e successivamente il Grande Ordine Teologico dei Cavalieri del Mediterraneo. Qualche tempo dopo (aprile 1319), dopo essersi convertito alla fede mistica, abbandonò il Granducato senza gioia o risentimento e divenne un soggetto del Regno di Francia dopo aver vagato, ancora una volta, le vaste terre d'Europa.

Oggigiorno, oltre a curare il fiore dell'affetto che ha iniziato a crescere nel suo cuore, fondò la Biblioteca Reale di Francia, dove è esposta la sua collezione di rari parcheggi illustrati, e, nell'aprile del 1319, egli ha fondato la Merchant Guild - dove unisce i leader di altri gruppi di mercanti e artigiani.

Pero hugged and kissed his bride and felt the warmth of her affection.

Soon they were walking the streets of York, greeting the inhabitants.

"My dear, I see a lot of potential in York: it is at the crossroads of the old roman road that runs across Albion and at the middle point many sea routes linking the neighboring kingdoms, it has a verdant forest and all the necessary institutions that govern kingdoms and cities: a well stocked market, a court to administer justice, an academy to let your subjects learn, a training ground that allows people to train and improve their fighting skills and the barracks where the arsenal is kept.

At the same time, York has two marvelous temples: look, the rays of sunlight gleam on them in the distance.

And in that neighborhood of the city I hear the hustle and bustle of workshops: I imagine when there are more craftsmen working in this city..."



Pero abbracciò e baciò la sua sposa e sentì il calore del suo affetto.

Presto stavano camminando per le strade di York, salutando gli abitanti.

"Mio caro, vedo un sacco di potenziale a York: è all'incrocio della strada che attraversa Albion e molte rotte marittime che collegano i regni vicini, ha una foresta verdeggiante e tutte le istituzioni necessarie che governano regni e città: un mercato ben fornito, un tribunale per amministrare la giustizia, un'accademia per insegnare ai tuoi soggetti, un campo di allenamento che consente alle persone di allenarsi e migliorare le loro capacità di combattimento e le caserme in cui è conservato l'arsenale.

Allo stesso tempo, York ha due meravigliosi templi che i raggi del sole brillano in lontananza.

E in quel quartiere della città sento il trambusto dei laboratori: immagino che ci siano più artigiani che lavorano in questa città ... "

The journey from Cyrene to York had been very long and Fabiotto, in the role of the Great Imam of York, had been forced to make the long journey passing through Venetian lands and lands of the Friandre, lengthening by many kilometers because of Cyrene's hostile relations .
When he knew of the recent friendly status of his Kingdom with that of Bulgaria, he looked up to the sky scolding him.
"You couldn't make this change before, uhu?"
All he could do was continue traveling, thinking of the new friends he had met on his journey: 2 rats, a chicken and a dog.
But honestly he made small purchases from someone he knew well, imagining that once he noticed his passing, this old friend could give him a smile from a distance.
When he arrived in York he decided to have a look of the market, the beating heart of the city.
He looked at what stores there were, what farms, and realized that York certainly had something good to offer and it was just the beginning of his or her new life. He still don't know if York is a man or a woman...
Now he was thinking only of the marriage he had to celebrate, and he wondered if he had missed something.
He counted the things he had to bring and that they had to be in the Palace.
100 flowers, 10 beers, twenty bottles of wine, 17 mulberries cakes ....
17 blackberry cakes ????
Fabiotto realized he had eaten 3 during his trip (off// automatic rest bonus ).
He immediately wrote to anyone urgently asking for 3 mulberry cakes, hoping that 3 cakes will not stop the marriage between Anne and Pero ....

Il viaggio  da Cyrene a York era stato molto lungo e Fabiotto, nei panni del Gran Imam di York, era stato costretto a fare il giro lungo passando in terre veneziane e in terre delle Friandre, allungando di molti chilometri per via delle relazioni ostili di Cyrene.
Quando apprese del recente stato amichevole del suo Regno con quello della Bulgaria, alzò lo sguardo al cielo rimproverandolo.
"Non si poteva fare prima questo cambio, eh?"
Non poteva fare altro che continuare a viaggiare pensando ai nuovi amici che aveva incontrato durante il suo viaggio: 2 topi, un pollo e un cane.
In realtà fece dei piccoli acquisti da qualcuno che conosceva bene, immaginando che una volta notato il suo passaggio, questo vecchio amico potesse dedicargli un sorriso da lontano.
Quando arrivò a York decise di fare un giro al mercato, cuore pulsante della città.
Guardò che negozi ci fossero, quali allevamenti, e si rese conto che York di sicuro aveva qualcosa di buono da offrire ed era solo l'inizio della sua nuova vita.
Ora pensava solo al matrimonio che doveva celebrare, e si chiedeva se aveva tralasciato qualcosa.
Contò le cose che doveva portare e che dovevano trovarsi nel Palazzo.
100 fiori, 10 birre, venti bottiglie di vino, 17 torte di more....
17 torte di more????
Fabiotto si rese conto di averne mangiate 3 durante il suo viaggio (off-riposo automatico).
Scrisse subito a chiunque chiedendo urgentemente 3 torte di more, sperando che non siano 3 torte di more a fermare il matrimonio tra Anne e Pero....

Emma laughed out loud when she heard that Fabiotto had eaten three of the Mulberry cakes that she and Europa had made for the wedding. She should have given him some extra for the journey. She rushed back to the Inn to see what she could find ...

Emma rise forte quando sentì che Fabiotto aveva mangiato tre delle torte di gelso che lei ed Europa avevano preparato per il matrimonio. Lei avrebbe dovuto dargli un extra per il viaggio. Tornò di corsa all'Inn per vedere cosa poteva trovare ...

Fabiotto looked at the 17 mulberries cakes and thought:
 "Damn it! They are so fragrant ... and good ... and I'm so hungry ..."

Fabiotto guardava le 17 torte di more e pensava...
"Dannazione! Sono così profumate.. e così buone.. sono così affamato..."

Pero discreetly calls the wedding banquet's head butler and whispers to him: Do not leave il Signor Fabiotto alone at the table of desserts at any moment... I fear that he may lose his mind with the french desserts that I brought from Guines...

It was a rainy but humid day in Scotland. Arthur was with his citizens finishing building the Mystic temple in the region of Carrick, when a messenger on horseback comes and gives a letter from Anne De Courtney. Arthur sits down to the road and begins to read it.

Surprisingly it was an invitation for a wedding in the region of York. Arthur had never participated in one, and it was perhaps a good experience since he would soon announce his marriage. He quickly gave some orders to his people, and started his return to the castle of Carrick.

He began to order his inventory and asked that his cart be prepared to travel soon.

A day before the trip to York, Arthur receives a letter from his friend Fabbiotto Borgia, who seemed to be in charge of the ceremony and part of the banquet. Indicating that some mulberry cakes were still missing and requested assistance with that. Arthur quickly remembered that he himself was collecting these cakes for his wedding, and that they had obtained some more, so he ordered their packing and then added them to the carriage.

Thus began the journey to York, first traveling to Lothian to set sail for several days until arriving at the ceremony in York.

Ezzelino aveva lasciato York  subito dopo averla presa, è una regione lontana dalla capitale, ma aveva scelto una persona veramente speciale per amministrarla, Anne che praticamente era stata una figlia, una ragazza umile, che sicuramente ha avuto una infanzia segnata da tristi eventi, ma una ragazza intelligente e molto saggia, e finalmente la vita le stava dando quello che lei si meritava :una posizione di prestigio prima e ora uno sposo che la avrebbe amata sinceramente, Pero Anes. Ezzelino era ritornato dopo tanto tempo  a Yorkper presenziare al suo matrimonio e la città era visibilmente più bella e popolata dall' ultima volta che era stato qui; Anne stava dimostrando che la fiducia avuta in lei era completamente meritata.
Ezzelino decise di farl un bel regalo per le sue nozze, 1000 monete d'oro per tutto ciò che aveva fatto per Cirene, e per essersi dimostrata una persona speciale, era il minimo che si potessere fare per lei.
Ma anche al vecchio amico Pero Anes Ezzelino aveva riservato un dono speciale di nozze, la scimitarra d'oro e incastonata di gioielli, la spada dell'onore Cireneico, una tra le più alte onorificenze del Gran ducato di Cyrene.
A breve finalmente il matrimonio sarebbe iniziato...


Ezzelino had left York immediately after taking her, it is a region far from the capital, but he had chosen a very special person to administer it, Anne who had practically been a daughter, a humble girl, who certainly had a childhood marked by sad events, but an intelligent and very wise girl, and finally life was giving her what she deserved: a prestigious position before and now a groom who would love her sincerely, Pero Anes. Ezzelino had returned to Yorkper after a long time to attend his wedding and the city was visibly more beautiful and populated since the last time he was here; Anne was proving that the trust she had in her was completely deserved.
Ezzelino decided to give her a nice gift for her wedding, 1000 gold coins for everything she had done for Cyrene, and for proving to be a special person, it was the least that could be done for her.
But also to her old friend Pero Anes Ezzelino she had reserved a special wedding gift, the scimitar of gold and set with jewels, the sword of Cyreneic honour, one of the highest honours of the Grand Duchy of Cyrene.
Shortly, finally, the wedding would begin...

Costance roused herself from the book she was dreaming over rather than reading when a page announced her the arrival of a letter from France . Her friend Pero finally had found someone to love for the rest of his life and Costance was really happy for him.

She could not travel to York  for the ceremony , she was not so well in these last days , but she wanted absolutely to send a gift to the couple.
She ordered to her servants to chose a selection of the best wines in the palace cellars and to send it to York to Lord Pero Anes with a letter of her .

Dear Pero,

the news of your marriage rejoices me .
My first impulse reading your invitation was to sail to York and participate with a great pleasure  to the ceremony , but my health forbids me to travel in this moment .
I am happy that a man of great sensibility like you has finally found his bride . She could hardly find a better man than you . I am certain you will share many happy moments in your future commun life .
With all my wishes of a long and happy life together , I send you a little gift and I hope that the light of happiness may shine upon your faces , now and forever .
Affectionately,

Costance d'hauteville”



She sealed the letter and reached her chambers retiring for the night.

«With all my wishes of a long and happy life together , I send you a little gift and I hope that the light of happiness may shine upon your faces , now and forever.» Pero folded the letter again and remembered with saudade the time he spent in Denmark as Duarte Vaz's page. In those days he had the opportunity to witness a rare thing among Europe's regents: a young Queen acting with resolution and authority while accepting the good advice of others without fear, suspicion or envy. This way, her kingdom profited twice as peace was crowned with prosperity.

Duarte Vaz de Lisboa once confessed to Pero (his loyal though rebel page), when they were already in Bulgary, that such a head of state deserved to be the main example of a treatise on how to exercise power. Duarte had even a title for that compendium: The Princess. Notes on Governance and Prosperity. After Duarte Vaz de Lisboa died, while Pero was organizing the manuscripts of his master, he thought, "One day i will write a book about good and bad examples of regency". Perhaps France will be the right set to write down these thoughts from Duarte's own notes.

Pero quickly wrote these words and sent a courier with them:

"My dear Costance, thank you very much for your gift - i even discovered with delight a red wine from my region! - but mostly for your (as always) kind words. I will do everything, all the time, to deserve Annes' affection and your inexhaustible esteem."

Dear Pero and Anne,

Thank you very much for the invitation to your wedding. It makes me happy to see persons like you two, who finally meet each other and find a path to walk together in this life.

I wish you a long and intense love for the rest of your lives.

Health and fortune,

Gracia Mendoza

These were good news; Magister Pero had found his bride, and she was a brave woman. Gracia felt so glad for them.
She wanted to make sure that they receive a wedding present; a beautiful dress for the bride Anne, and one of Gracia´s favourite scrolls, that she hope, Pero could enjoy.
