To bring even more detail to bare.  His Royal Highness threw a shot that was
blocked by Sir Aaron in front of Sir Aaron's helm, then instead of
withdrawing his sword, HRH followed the line of the defending sword back,
thrusting forward into the eye, with enough force to kill Sir Aaron .  It
happened in a matter of seconds.

Lord Rodrigo

This is the blow which won Crown Tournament, if I understood his Royal
Highness's description of the bout.  (We were in the middle of the Porto
(TM), so it's possible that I misunderstood.)

(Clarification for those coming in to the middle of this discussion:  Prince
Miguel was fighting with a rattan weapon with a thrusting tip, not a rapier.

It's just that the skills transfer so well....)

who, in the interest of furthering pedantry, has altered the subject
In Ansteorra, Crown is held two months before Coronation.
