Ríoghacht Uílí Fianna

Lamh laidir an uachdar
The strong hand uppermost
Manumque robustam excelsius


BLESSINGS HOLY FATHER;

This letter has been addressed to His Holiness the Pope, from the Rí of the Uílí Fianna - that is Family, Followers, and Brothers-in-Arms - Finnen mac Briain Uí Briain, son of the Great King Brian Bóruma, of the magnificent House of Uí Briain, descendants of the Clannin Dál gCais.

Recently Your Holiness has been so graciously inclined to elevate the Diocese of Dublin, so that it is now the seat of a Bishop, with that in mind we have sent Domnall mac Finnen Uí Briain, Bishop of Dublin to Rome to act as our emissary, as you requested. May he greatly improve our standing within Your Holiness' court.

The people of the Emerald Isle have long been loyal to the Pope in Rome, and as dutiful subjects we request the benediction of Your Holiness. Should the Ríoghacht Uílí Fianna - that is the Kingdom of the Uili Fianna - unify the Island into one Kingdom - the Ard-Ríoghacht Éireann - as has been done before by my father, Brian Bóruma we would request the blessings of Your Holiness, so that Ireland may prosper under a pious and devout King.

God Bless,

Finnen mac Briain Uí Briain, Rí Uílí Fianna

We hereby declare by the grace of God, that Domnall mac Finnen Uí Briain, Bishop of Dublin, is from now on Cardinal Domnall, and shall serve God in the College of Cardinals, as a loyal servant to Jesus Christ, our Lord.

If the Kingdom of the Uili Fianna, wishes to obtain the Blessings of the Pope and the Vatican for a royal crown, his request must be sent to the Holy See, where the Cardinals and the Pope shall discuss it throughoutly, and make a decision. Your arguments supporting your case should be presented in the opening speech for your request, too.

To His Holiness, the Bishop of Rome

Greetings, Holy Father.  I am Bishop Daniel of Jerusalem, from where I tend to my flock, small though it may be.  Though Christians are a minority among the subjects of the House of Judah, I remain hopeful that they will hear the word of our lord Jesus Christ and be turned by it.  Even now as I sit writing you this letter, I do so from my chambers in the court of Yitzchak I of Judah, the Hebrew lord of this realm.  I am trusted as an adviser to Yitzchak, and at my urging he has issued an edict of safe conduct ensuring safe and unhindered travel for Christian pilgrims within his realm.

In faith,
Daniel of Jerusalem

To the Pope of Rome and College of Cardinals,

It is our duty to inform you that Bishop Ulam-khala has bravely taken up the responsibility of representing the Kingdom of Saudi Babylonia and the Babylonian people in the College of Cardinals. Although few accept the Lord Jesus Christ in our lands, we hope that you accept and that this will improve relations with the Church and Christian nations, as well as give us more of a voice in international matters.

May God be with you,

Your Holy Majesty, Pope Leo III, to the Romans of the world; may God and the Virgin Mary bless your papacy.

I formally introduce myself as Emperor Nekolai Zadravic I, 1st Emperor of the Royal Ebsotzian Empire. I wish to formally announce that our national bishop, Bishop Johannes Tryägnen, has decided to take up the responsibility of Cardinalship in Ebsotz, and will faithfully and happily represent Ebsotz in the College of Cardinals. We have followed Catholic ways since the formation of our nation; it is Jesus Christ that we followed at the Ebsotzian Revoulution, with me, Nekolai, leading my people in the name of God into battle. By sacred teachings we have maintained our flock of followers. We formally announce that I, Emperor Nekolai, will provide a voice and influence in the College of Cardinals, to maintain peace in the Medieval World.

Pacem Imperium,
Emperor Nekolai

With the passing of Cardinal Alduin, a seat is vacant in the College of Cardinals.
The Papacy shall open the voting for a new Cardinal, and the voting shall last for 7 days. The Cardinal with the most endorsement shall gain the seat.

(I'm on my phone right now so I have to post rather quickly.)

Cardinal Luq Léxonnois

While startled and deeply grieving for the death of his peer, Cardinal Alduin, the Béziquienne Bishop of Santé-Ônge was always looking out for the interests of his country. The Crown of Bézique, the institution through which the Archprincipality of Bézique governed most of eastern France had recently acquired the Kingdom of Brittany and the Bishop of Nantes would be a perfect candidate.

"We wish to propose His Eminence Bagad Moribië Bishop of Nantes, to replace our beloved and deceased peer, Cardinal Alduin. The Archprince of Bézique having recently restored the Kingdom of Brittany to the proper dynasty believes that in order to fully rejuvenate the decaying Breton nation it should begin to play a role in ecclesiastical matters.

I can personally vouch for the character of the Bishop of Nantes. He is a good, pious man, he is a perfect fit to represent a nation of such good and pious character.

Let us not deny this man his proper dues. He has served god for forty years and it would an injustice to let his devotion go unrewarded."

Let us hear of each of our candidates that we may make a good and just decision before we make nominations, especially nominations of bishops so closely beholden to another of this college.

The humble priest had travelled a long way to get to where he was. The priest had crossed the unpredictable channel. He had fondly hurried through the exquisite Béziquienne countryside. Then with great haste he went through Montresque. The freezing alps did not deter him. He had braved the warring Italian north until he had reached the ultimate sanctuary in Rome. He had come from a small church on the southern coast of Sǣxenland - the only Christian mission in that land. Specifically come from the Catholic mission in Dæþscīre in the Undercyningan of Wēssǣxenní. After talking to some of the officials in the courtyard about his predicament he was brought into a chamber, with elaborate golden façades and ornamentation. In their where the leaders of Christendom. The imperious looking Pope, clad in white. And Cardinals were all clad in red, true to their name. They were all redoubtable, eminent and holy. The priest began.

"I am sorry to interrupt your holy deliberations, my lords, but I am under duress for my flock is under current threat. My name is Émile Grôussard and I am originally from Normandy. In the beautiful French Duchy I joined the priesthood so I could serve God and the Saviour. I have been fascinated with the idea of converting Sǣxenns who inhabit that wild and misty kingdom to the north ever since I endured a raid on the town where I was stationed. I knew these raiders where good men but where deceived by the devil and his agents, the false god Woden, Frēj, Thunor, Tiw and other demons. So I lead a group Of missionaries beyond the Channel into the dark, misty and wild Sǣxenlands where we have found few but loyal converts. Recently, there has been a power shift in Sǣxenland which is not in our favour. The previous King Ælþedric Ælþedricsson who was tolerant of our faith has died. And in his place his preferred successor, his son of the same name, has been killed and replaced by the powerful noble Beowulf Goðwinsson. Now the son of Ælþedric was very pro-Christian, having converted to our faith while in exile in Normandy. Now the new King Beowulf has issued the following command:

Should a man forsake the gods for the words of the wretched missionaries let his countrymen capture him, so his Sheriff may pronounce judgement, and should the guilty unbelievers drown in the channel from whence the words of the Christians came, let his possessions be shared among them the country he betrayed, and his wife and children, should they renounce their faith be sparred and sent to Francia, should they keep their deceitful faith they should be sold to the the highest bidder;

As you can see my flock is in danger. As I left they had already gone into hiding, anticipating the actions of the new king. I beg for help from the Christian word in assisting us against these heathens."

Dire news indeed. How many faithful in the Saexenlands would you say? And how many men strong is this Godwinsson?

*The cardinal signals his aide to bring the weary priest a cup of barley tea, and continues:

As for assistance, I cannot speak for my king, you understand, but if his holiness wills it perhaps we could formally assemble an army of devout men.

In any case I wish you luck in the utmost, truly.

Fellow bishops, if you wish to assemble an army to defeat the heathens of Britannia, please open a separate discussion for it in the Holy See.

As for Varasd, we nominate Bishop Bakocz for Cardinal.

If those are all the candidates I would place my vote for Bishop Münsch.
A realm having two cardinals in the college would create a power struggle, I believe.
