Among the droit de seigneur, jus primae noctis was always the one that I found the hardest to comprehend from a serf's pov and the easiest to understand from a seigneur's pov.

It is easy to understand. One of my ancestors would be discussing all this with the peasants while he sat on the back of a tall war horse that was trained to crash into things and trample people to death. While doing this he would finger his sword and snarl. His armor glinting in the sun.


The bishop standing nearby would be his younger brother. And any disputes were tried in his courts run by his cousin. And indeed, when royalty visited, they called each other 'cousin' because they were all related. The peasants weren't even the same tribe.

IE: we were invaders and aliens.

I thought so...greetings, fellow former SCAdian and history geek! I am formerly of the West Kingdom (NorCal-yup). Never did any fighting; and eventually went sideways into performing in the various gate and Queen's bands at the Renaissance Faire.

Santayana was soooo right, and we are soooo screwed.

Elaine Supkis

I once was hired by the King of the West to be his Queen's bodyguard at Estrella Wars. We had a laugh riot for three days, she and I. She was oriental and a wonderful fighter.

It was a lot of fun, playing this game when I was younger and didn't have arthritis.

By the way, I notice the articles here which I consider to be the most important, the ones that dig deep into arcane matters that are at the heart of the System, these get few comments.

I suspect this is because of the very fact, not a thing about these matters are taught in school at any point at all. Within the SCA, there are lots of history buffs but they tend to ignore the nitty gritty financial side of history. Except for a few merchants. We would discuss these things late at night on Merchant's row.


I used to make 'money' for meals guarding merchants. Heh. My young troops loved that detail. Even the younger ones under 14 years old.

One of my under-grad minors was in Medieval Studies, which was one of those inter-departmental minors. We had to take classes in history, music, art, religion and literature. Plus I took more history courses as a grad student on "The High Middle Ages" and "Renaissance Venice". So economics, while not a separate subject, was part of the picture.

Elaine Supkis

Ach, I studied Medieval German. An obscure field if there ever is one. I know all about the Babenbergers who were annihilated in 1268.

I love stories from back then. What an amazing time it was.

Metamorphosis usually proceeds in distinct stages, starting with larva or nymph, optionally passing through pupa, and ending as adult. There are two main types of metamorphosis in insects, hemimetabolism and holometabolism.

The immature stages of a species that metamorphosises are usually called larvae, and in these stages may grow quite quickly. But in the complex metamorphosis of many insect species, only the first stage is called a larva and sometimes even that bears a different name; the distinction depends on the nature of the metamorphosis. An example of metamorphosis where the name is changed is that of a tadpole. When a tadpole metamorphoses, it becomes amphibious, whereas a tadpole itself may not be considered amphibious.

In hemimetabolism, the development of larva often proceeds in repeated stages of growth and ecdysis (moulting), these stages are called instars. The juvenile forms closely resemble adults, but are smaller and, if the adult has wings, lack wings. This process is also known as "simple", "gradual" or "incomplete" metamorphosis. The differences between juveniles in different instars are small, often just differences in body proportions and the number of segments.

Not like rulers today who are usually hidden well away from any battles. Let us not forget how many of them died: in armor.

Early rising can also give us enough time to get ready for our work.
So we say that those who always get up late should make great effort to get up early.
