Ceremony for swearing the

Oath of Fealty -

Knights

 

 

Herald:  Their Royal Majesties now call all Knights of the Kingdom of the Outlands who have not yet done so, to come forward and take the oath of fealty.

 

The Swordbearer hands Lightning to His Majesty, who holds it so the knights can support it.

 

Knights:  (with prompting from the herald:)

This day do I render

homage and fealty

to my Sovereign Lord and Lady,

___________________ and _______________________

by Right of Arms,

King and Queen of the Outlands,

who will, form this day forward,

Be my Liege Lord and Lady.

I will remain true in all ways,

serving them faithfully -

this do I swear, by my belt and chain

and  by my honor and by the high ideals

which I hold as a Knight of this Realm.

So say I, ______________________.

 

King:  Accepts the oaths of fealty in his own words, or with the following:

We accept your homage and fealty

and pledge to you that from this day forward until the end of Our Reign

you are Our Liegemen [and women]

to whom We give our service faithfully.

 

Herald:  You have Their Majesties' leave to depart.
