Lord Terence

Getting to know Lord Sir Terence - 2018

Q. Where is your favourite place in the Medieval world?
A. No one place in particular. So much went on during that time period, it is truly hard to say.

Q. What is the title of the last book you read and what was it about?
A. I read so many books. "Revelations," 1500's and around the time period of King Henry VIII. An involving story with a great twist and an unexpected ending.

Q. What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
A. The coolest thing I am working on right now at Victory is the Meadhall and yards, as it's all one and the same.

Q. Which four individuals from Medieval times, would you like to have dinner with?
A. Simon de Montfort because he was a very influential and informed man. He stood up to Kings and was still a very compassionate man. Llewellyn of Wales because he stood up to the oppressive English and cared greatly for his family. William Wallace for the same reasons. Passionate, driven, committed and compassionate to others. Pondered on Robert the Bruce again for the same reasons. English, Welsh and Scottish all at one dinner table with me would make for an interesting meal!

Q. What is a medieval-inspired goal or something that you are looking forward to doing or being a part of this year?
A. Becoming King. No, seriously. (That's it. Lord Sir Terence wants to be King.)

"Getting to know Lady Tonya - 2018"
 
Q. Where is your favourite place in the Medieval world?
A. My favourite place is Carsassonne in southern France. Lord Terence and I visited Carcasonne when in our honeymoon. The town was filled with history and amazing tales.
 
Q. What is the title last book you read and what was it about?
A. An information book titled "Medieval Europe" that covered a broad range of historical topics that I hadn't seen in an information book. Reading details of how structured life was within the feudal system.
 
Q. What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
A. It's not 'cool,' yet I am working on a medieval piece of embroidery to use as my lap cloth when banqueting.
 
Q. Which four individuals from Medieval times, would you like to have dinner with?
A. The first is Queen Isabella of France who was the daughter of the French King and wife of King Edward 11 of England. She would have had a most amazing life. The second is Saint Thomas Becket. I would ask him what was the motivation and reasons behind some extreme choices when making decisions. The third is Saint Margaret of Scotland, who was an English princess and Scottish Queen. She dedicated her life to her people. The fourth is William the Conquerer. An intriguing person who may have been very different in real-life.
 
Q. What is a medieval-inspired goal or something that you are looking forward to doing or being a part of this year?
A. I intend to learn more medieval crafts this year. Nalbindning or needlebinding, a Scandinavian form of needlework that involves a needle and length of yarn.  I'd like to learn to use my spinning wheel proficient enough to spin fleece into yarn and practice my Lucet work to well enough to create cords and trimming for clothing and making more period garments.
