Laurel Elevation

Ursula Georges

The peerage orders in the Society for Creative Anachronism are modeled on medieval knightly orders such as the Order of the Garter and the Order of the Golden Fleece. When I was invited to join the Order of the Laurel, I decided to take fifteenth-century knightly orders as my inspiration. My primary model was the Burgundian Order of the Golden Fleece; I also used information from the French Order of the Star and the English Order of the Garter.
