Writs for their Royal Highnesses Gabriel and Constanzia


Their royal Highnesses Gabriel and Contanzia have asked for Writs with an early 16th Century Spanish theme. So far I have found only one document that was written at this time to give the College of Scribes an idea of what sort of documents were written at that time and what they looked like.

The document that I have found is a partial payment from Her Majesty Queen Isabella of Spain for a tapestry. The document is signed "Yo la Reyna" and is dated 1501 which is a little bit earlier than preferred but gives us an idea of what to be looking for. Here is the document.

I would love to see other options here so that everyone can have a look at the sort of documents that we should be aiming for during the next reign.

New stuff on webpage

Long time no see everyone....

I've added a few things to the webpage and made a few updates. The big change is to add the Grant of Arms blank instructions here. It's not complete but I'll add the images and instructions as I get them.

Just in case you weren't aware, the Award of Arms blank instructions are here.

Both links can be found in the Model Book section of the webpage.
