In the last 25 years there has only been one formal court of chivalry 
in Ansteorra.  If my memory serves me there may have been (I can 
think of two cases) a few courts of chivalry under older rules held 
in the early days of the kingdom.  There have been a number of Courts 
of the Crown or Courts of Inquiry which are a less formal proceedings 
held over the years.  There have been a few rather tense circles that 
could have appeared as some kind of court but these were internal 
matters of the circle in question.   Of course there was one special 
court held in the ancient past as we both remember.
