Written by Toki Redbeard in drottkvaett. At Twelfth Night in A.S. 39, King Thorvald Halvorsson (“Thorson”) knighted Ankara, the first female member of the Chivalry made in the East.

Weaned on Northern war fields,
wild daughter of tumult.
Fierce her feller cutting
flesh afoot and horseback.
She has harnessed Holkvir;
harsh, this battle-clearer.
Now before the knighthood,
kneels first sword-thegn woman.
