As the bustle of a unique sea-port sets a landscape of opportunity 
for wealth and power, four great houses have risen out of the 
struggle and have found themselves deadlocked for control of trade 
and the future of Venice.

Come to Venice in the time of Marco Polo! This wondrous city is a 
bustling seaport with travelers from Europe, the Moorish lands and 
the Far East. In the early fourteenth century, we see beautiful 
ladies lounging in their gondolas, duels by the side of canals, and . 
. . political intrigue. Amidst village greens, castles, ships and 
theatres, Bryn Gwlad invites all to come and celebrate.

An evening court is planned at the Doge di Venezia's finest ship, the 
Bucentaurus, where we will celebrate our annual "marriage to the sea" 
ceremony, and honor all those who have been triumphant.  Afterwards, 
let music, dancing and revelry fill the night!

Details can be found in:
