FW: HRM Andreas Eisenfalke von Ulm
>forward from Her Majesty Isabella of York, Queen of the East:
>Joyous Greetings to our Great Societal Family!
>On Saturday, January 25, the Board of Directors convened and, among their
>other business, it was determined by the BOD that HRM Andreas Eisefalke
>von Ulm, who was deployed two weeks ago, will be granted his titles of
>Duke at the end of Our reign.
>I want to thank all who sent in letters to the BOD in support of Andreas.
>The many letters of well-wishers from near and very far, throughout the
>knowne world have moved me deeply. The love and caring that was present
>in your letters many times was too much to confront. It was lifting and
>comforting to know that here, in this great Societal family, no matter
>what differences we have, we come together for what is right and honorable.
> >From the bottom of my heart, I thank you and embrace you. It is in
> times like this, times of such great difficulty, that such gestures of
> support and camaraderie make this game worth playing. As always is
> present in Our Great Society, our care for each other in what is
> important and right stretches beyond cultural lines, beyond creed, or any
> of the small differences that seem important to the mundane world. This
> is a truly a demonstration of what the dream is all about, the living of
> those virtues of chivalry and honor, on which this Society was first
> predicated, and which I am proud to be a part of.
>Although this decision has brought great joy to my heart, the battle is
>not yet over for we all continue to pray that HRM Andreas' and all other
>of our members and family of members return safely to our familial
>arms. These defenders of our country are the true heroes.
>With all that is within me, I thank you all.
>Isabella of York
