      The Barony of Shattered Crystal presents

      The Field of the Cloth of Gold, AD 1520
      Crystal Ball XVIII
      Nov 2-4, 2001 (AS XXXVI)

      web site: http://www.geocities.com/baronysc/CBHomePage.html

      The year is 1520, and Spain is getting just a little too powerful
      off their
      New World gold for comfort. So their gracious majesties Henry VIII of
      England and Francois I of France have decided to hold a great
      meeting not
      far from Calais, in France, to discuss a grand alliance between
      their two
      nations. And since neither of these great monarchs does anything in a
      stingy fashion, they have brought almost their entire courts with
      them and
      are holding contests of fighting, archery, and (unofficially)
      pageantry. In
      fact, the display is so splendid that it is being called the Field
      of the
      Cloth of Gold, for as far as the eye can see there is a display of
      and splendor, each more magnificent than the last. Or, as Master
      Shakespeare will put it,

      Today the French, All clinquant, all in gold, like heathen gods,
      Shone down the English;
      and, to-morrow, they made Britain India:
      every man that stood show'd like a mine.
      Their dwarfish pages were as cherubins, all gilt:
      the madams too, not used to toil,
      did almost sweat to bear the pride upon them,
      that their very labour was to them as a painting:
      Now this masque was cried incomparable;
      and the ensuing night made it a fool and beggar.
      The two kings, equal in lustre, were now best, now worst,
      As presence did present them;
      him in eye, still him in praise:
      and, being present both, 'twas said they saw but one;
      and no discerner durst wag his tongue in censure.

      When these suns-- for so they phrase 'em--by their heralds
      the noble spirits to arms, they did perform
      Beyond thought's compass

      Come join us for a full day of dance classes, fighting, food, and
      games and then dance until dawn at our nightlong ball.
