Princess Cairistiona’s most memorable moments
Before the Reign started, as Lady of Lochac, Cairistiona’s favourite event was Purgatorio. Purgatorio is West Kingdom Coronation – this particular event was held in Goulburn, New South Wales. Many of the prominent members of the Principality of Lochac were made peers at said event. This event also hosted Lochac’s first all peers meeting.
Another memorable moment for Princess Cairistiona was the knighting Sir Ragnar Magnússon.
The Prince’s Mead Guard included Lord Tancred Enrico di Castrogiovanni.
Princess Cairistiona was the third Princess to have a Mouse Guard and the last Princess for which the Mouse Guard was a Guard rather than an award. The Princess had six Mouse Guard members, including Harry Lankin, and Michael Strongarm.
The Mouse Guard favours that Princess Cairistiona’s Mouse Guard carried were on green or white cloth with cross stitched cats on them.
One of the most significant things that happened during Their reign was the theft of some of the Royal Regalia. This included the cloaks royal cloaks, Princesses Guard Baldrics and some of the Mead Guard Baldrics.
Prince Bran and Princess Cairistiona were the last Prince and Princess to wear the cloaks from regalia for Their coronation.
