As I said day before yesterday:
When Rowan was Queen in her own right, she had a Queen's Champion,
chosen by rapier combat in the usual way. The following day we also
had a King's Rapier Champion list for Hector.
Bear in mind that this was several years before we started the
tradition of having the King's Champion list on the morning of
Coronation. The list of Queen's Champions on the Ansteorran heraldic
website says Galen Nicolli was Rowan's Queen's Champion
that Hector-as-consort had *two* champions: Thorland O'Shea for
rapier and Patrick Michael Gordonne for armored.
possible that the list is incorrect and Pat was actually the
Sovereign's Champion (i.e. Rowan's) not the King's Champion; I don't
remember at this point.
