The name Richard Mont Royale rings a bell. Is he from Atenveldt? If he is, 
he may have been the representative of the Crown who came in to town and 
held court with the Crown's permission. If this is the person, he awarded 
some AoA's and perhaps even some peerages.
Bran de Tentreak, Mistress Janet, and Kasilda Kubasik are my usual sources 
for history before my time. Bran, however, is hard to pin down. He claims 
not to remember anything.
