Congratulations to Baron Gunthar!

Having two prefixed titles like that is called "title stacking"
(by those who call it anything) and appears to be non-period.
The period practice would be to use the much higher title
alone, Baron.  In the SCA in Ansteorra (it differs by
kingdom) the knighthood outranks (barely) the court barony,
so a priori it'd be Sir Gunthar.

The *real* answer is "Hey, Gunthar!  Congrats!  It was well-
deserved.  Say, how do you want to be addressed -- Baron
Gunthar, Sir Gunthar, plain ol' Gunthar, ...?".
