What I have next to tell must be treated with delicacy, for it speaks of the misdeeds of two gentles who yet dwell in the Kingdom of Meridies. The Lord of whom I shall speak has, through his efforts, risen in the Kingdom and thereby expunged any dishonor, which any have associated, with his name as a result of his complicity.
In the days when Antonia Martin de Castilla was Seneschal of the Kingdom of Meridies and Lady Gilrean Derrilyn was Seneschal of Axemoor, there came to live in the lands to the East of the Pearl River a Lady from another kingdom. This Lady was a very enthusiastic member of the Society and wished to see it prosper in all ways. The Lady despaired that there were only a handful of folk resident in Seleone and set about to increase the population.
The efforts of this Lady vexed the Honorable Lady Isolde for the Lady would not consult with the Honorable Isolde before proceeding, but would rather plunge ahead for good or ill.
The Lady from out-kingdom for her part became vexed with the Honorable Lady Isolde, for she felt that her Ladyship was not keeping her informed of the business of the Canton and that Her Ladyship was thwarting the growth of the Canton. Because of this, the Lady resolved to have the Honorable Lady Isolde removed as Seneschal of Seleone and another put in her place.
The Lady chose as Isolde's replacement a Lord who she had recently become enamored with and who had recently moved to Seleone from another part of Meridies. The Lord however, confided the plan to Lord Lachlan Sinclair Dumas when he was attending an event in the Shire of Iron Ox and Lord Lachlan, being a good friend of both the Honorable Lady Isolde and Finn Normansson, immediately informed them of the Lady's plan.
The Honorable Lady Isolde was most upset when she learned of this plan and appealed to her friends, Lady Gilrean and Baroness Antonia, to speak to the Lady. This the Seneschals did and the mutiny was thwarted. Several months later, the Lord and Lady moved from Seleone to another part of the Kingdom.
There are those who say that the Lord was foolish to have divulged the plan to Lord Lachlan but for my part I wonder if he may have been foolish as the fox. It is possible that he may have come to regret becoming involved in a plot to overthrow a properly warranted Seneschal and wished to be out of the plan. By speaking of the plot to Lord Lachlan, he was assured that the plot would fail while still keeping the affection of the Lady he had become enamored of.
