We were having a bit of fun during Michael's last court. We were trying
to get every knight on site to hold the Sword of State. Even Patrick
held it for a while. I hope we weren't too disruptive. I don't think
Michael or Michaela noticed.
Patrick and Julia's court was more normal. What we normally do is trade
off from time to time when we feel like it.
The Sword of State is almost always held by a knight. Sometimes the
King's Champion gets to do it. Or sometimes one of the King's squires.
