Ok. Ignore my last question then. I hadn't gotten to this message when I wrote
my other email.
thank you for this information. I did remember the Iron Rose. And I did
remember that Hector was King Consort. I just didn't realize that Queens
Champion was fought for Rowan. I didn't know how that had gone actually. So
this answers my question then.
Thank you *very* much for explaining it before I had even asked the question.

We called Rowan Queen by Right of Arms and Hector was the King Consort.
But Simone brings up a very good point. Doing this would change the very fabric
of the SCA (Game). The original SCA was heavily based on the Arthurian concepts
of Chivalry, A noble King and a beautiful Queen. While over the decades (and
yes there are still a few of us who have played almost all that time) we have
expanded and improved our historical accuracy, we a still basically what was
created in the late 60's. I fear that to allow controversial mundane issues
(however well intended) to effect changes in the SCA is not good.
