The following excerpt is from the Great Book of Kings of Trimaris Part I, which was prepared by Countess EnriQueta in October, 1993. The full document can be found here.
Softly to the sound of the harp and the lyre
came the warrior-bard
and much joy brought he in song and merriment.
Loved was he, uncommon for kings
but not for bards.
Yet he was a dread lord of war when stirred to wrath.
He humbled the kings of Meridies and Atlantia when outnumbered,
and even stole victory from sure defeat
by bearding the Eastern King in northern lands.
He gave his life for the land and it bears his mark.
And Hilary was his queen.
And Arlof sleeps in Avalon’s mists.
