The Lady Adelia Hákonardottir
,Niece to a Germanic king, her hand was given in marriage to end a dispute with a Frankish Margrave.
Lady Adelia could ride as well as any man, shoot an arrow and hit her target, along with her ax. Her uncle had kept her closel for he had great use of her blade, until he had greater use of her in a marriage contract.
Within the confines of marriage, Lady Adelia’s spirit had been quelled. The expectations of the Franks were different than those of her homeland. One had only to look in her icy blue eyes to see the untamed spirit lying just beneath her cool demeanor. It was within this marriage that she learned how to run a castle, and the servants within. However, her husband who was old enough to be her father had a heavy hand. He also had his eye higher than his station.
To this end he and his wife, along with several of his soldiers crossed a channel. A great mist settled over their vessel. So great and thick was this mist, that if one held their hand up in front of their nose, it could not be seen. Panic began to creep into the souls of the soldiers. Several days passed until the ship hit land. Taken into custody, they were brought into a great room where a giant eight legged creature awaited.
Her husband it seemed had made pact with none other than the spider wizard himself! Always seeking to better his station wanting to be more than just a Margrave, more than a Duke. He wanted to be King. They spent months within the keep, treated well enough, but yet, Lady Adelia did not like what she saw and heard. Something twisted in her gut, whispering in her ear that this was wrong.
One afternoon, she was out in the meadow, and met a small sprite. A friendship began. She told Lady Adelia of the fairy realm and of the constant battle that raged on with the evil spider wizard and his minions. Daily, Lady Adelia went out, always under a watchful eye of the guards, but the sprite was very small. It was she who set the meeting with King Gregory, his kingdom lay just beyond the mist.
At this meeting, Lady Adelia met King Gregory the Grey and his wife and shield mate, Queen Annwynn, Lady Adelia agreed to pledge her sword for the right and just, to lift the oppression that the wizard and her own husband were placing upon the land and those within.
It was during the battle along the edges of Giggle Creek that Lady Adelia met her husband in battle, their swords clanged loudly against one another, as they fought. One for good and one for evil When the sunlight began to paint the sky once more, Lady Adelia stood, with a wound to her knee from his blade and her own blade stuck firmly in his chest.
Since the defeat of the Spider wizard and those that followed the eight legged foe, the land of Dragoncroft has only known peace and tranquility. Lady Adelia has found her place to call home, a place full of laughter and love. She has traveled with the Royal Court as a friend and companion ever since.
We are so lucky to have 2 mermaids this year !!
Mercy will be swimming in from down on the Gulf, all the way from New Orleans! See her at the mermaid cove at the corner of Dragonfly Lane and Kings Row between 3:30 and 5 and Calypso the Painted Mermaid will be swimming down from Birmingham, catch her in the fairy realm!
Just a few of the inhabitants of the Kingdom; you will meet some as you enter the Kingdom, others you may encounter as you make your way around the Village.
