>  On December 27 of last year, the Middle Kingdom was struck with sorrow
>  Scott Hall, also known as Crown Prince Jafar al-Safa, Knight, Pelican,
>  Count, succumbed to a staph infection, and passed away.  His Lady, Kenna
>  Harve, was subsequently crowned, and is currently serving the Middle
>  Kingdom as Queen Regnant.
>  The Board of Directors recently received a petition, signed by over 600
>  members of the Middle Kingdom, requesting that the Midrealm be allowed to
>  honor Jafar by posthumously awarding him with the title and estate of a
>  Duke in the Society for Creative Anachronism.
>  The Board of Directors is completely aware and respectful of the
>  surrounding the petition.  Jafar had a sterling reputation throughout the
>  Known World, and his conduct was exemplary for all who would call
>  themselves knight, or gentleman.  The Board recognizes the pain and
>  difficulty Jafar's passing has placed on the subjects of the Middle
>  and especially upon his Lady, Queen Kenna.  And the Board understands
>  Jafar's people need closure.
>  The primary document of the Current Middle Ages is Corpora, which states
>  the following:
>  "VI.A.2.a.(5).  The Crown shall acknowledge attainment of Ducal, County,
>  or Viscounty rank by those who have met the requirements."
>  "VII.C.3.  Standard and Alternate Titles.  The Society's standard titles
>  are defined in Appendix C..."
>  "Appendix C.  Duke/Duchess: Persons who have reigned over a kingdom 2 or
>  more times.  The title is assumed at the end of the second complete
>  As much as the Directors wish to grant the petitioners' request to honor
>  the memory of such a remarkable man in this fashion, according to the
>  letter of the law, they cannot.
>  However, the Board is aware similar tragic circumstances have occurred in
>  the past, and recognizes that unfortunately, more may occur in the
>  Therefore, the Board of Directors wishes comments from the membership on
>  the following proposed change to Corpora:
>  "VI.A.1.c.(2).a.:  Should extreme and extraordinary circumstances, such
>  death, prevent a Crown or Coronet from completing the requirements of
>  Corpora VI.A.1.c.(2), the Board of Directors may, upon petition, and on a
>  case by case basis, waive the requirements in Corpora VI.A.1.c.(2) to
>  the bestowing of a royal peerage or royal title."
>  Please send your comments to SCA, Inc., Box 360789, Militias CA
>  no later than October 5,1998.
