Arcuarius (an apology)
- I just went back to my pdf copy of "Corpora".
Section VIII (not Appendix C, which does not exist
anymore) does give the College of Arms the right to define
alternate (other language) titles. I found it just a few
minutes ago. But according to Istvan, the pdf version is
identical to the official document, so even if Section VIII
gives the College of Arms this right, any such online list
that claims to base it's author's authority on a section of
a superceeded version of another document is, and should be
taken to be, now null and void. Of course, as soon as the
College of Arms updates their list to cite the proper
authorization for their power, it becomes effective again.
Which, given the length of time other changes get finalized,
in both the available printed versions, and the online
versions, might be years. But I really don't care that much
about what alternate titles are used by whom. I was just
trying to keep the record straight. I missed it a bit, at
first, at least. I know now why I missed it before, though.
I searched electronically just for the term 'college of
heralds', but not 'college of arms'. Both terms are used in
the Governing Documents, but I only got those areas where
the one term was used. I also searched just for 'laurel of
arms', not 'laurel sovereign of arms'. Sorry! I was wrong.
