I have not seen this posted to Ansteorra. I know he lived in Atlantia but
there are some who knew of him here. My husband, H.L. Tadhg macAedain
UiChonchobhair, was his squire. He was a good freind to us and we will miss
him greatly. Please keep his wife, Duchess Melisande, and thier son, H.L.
Michael of Oldcastle, in your thought and prayers.

> On Friday, 12 November, Duke Gyrth Oldcastle of Ravenspur, KSCA, OL, OP,
passed from this life due to an apparent heart attack. Gyrth had been ill
for most of the year -- had his right leg amputated (in stages no less).
> Gyrth was King of the East once and King of Atlantia once. He was a former
Brigantia Principal Herald of the East, and at the time of his death was
Conch Herald for Atlantia (consultant on court heraldry). His style as a
court herald was something many of us have striven to emulate.
> We laid him to rest on Wednesday the 17th. We are the less for his
absence, but only because we were so much the greater for having him.
