Baronial Champions and Protectors

The Champions of the Barony of St Florian de la Riviere are held in high esteem as the contest that these good gentles have won is a hard feat. Each has displayed considerable prowess to attain this honour. All champions are chosen through competition except for the personal Champions of the Baron and the Baroness.  These are chosen for specific ideals and personal attributes.  The Baroness's Champion has been traditionally chosen for field appearance and courtesy. The Baron's Champion has traditionally been chosen for service and and grace. All Champions are chosen at the St Florian Baronial Championship. The Protectors of the Banner are chosen at the Battle of Bottony Cross.
