Charter

Actual text of the Charter for the Royal Forest of Carolingia

Be it known that we have prepared well to undertake care of the Greenwood and hereby accept charge to protect the Royal Forest of Carolingia from foe or neglect and joyfully proclaim Ella de Caleys as our founding Honorable Keeper of the Forest.

All Foresters are expected to assist others, protect the Greenwood, uphold forest law of the East Kingdom, follow all lawful representatives of the East Kingdom and Barony and abide the pleasure of Their Excellencies Carolingia. Those Foresters who take oath of this in front of the High Warden shall be known as Royal Foresters.

All Foresters shall make ready by practice and teaching the skills and knowledge of woodcraft and flame. Any Royal Forester by demonstrating increased proficiency in tasks designated by the High Warden of the East shall be recognized as Underforester, Forester, Master Forester or Forest High Order members as befits their skill and kit.

The Keeper of the Royal Forest of Carolingia must be a Forester or Master Forester and is further charged to conduct the business of the Forest and hold a seat on the Great Council of Carolingia for up to three years with support of Their Excellencies Carolingia and a majority of Carolingia’s Royal Foresters in the Royal Forest of Carolingia.

Other officers of the Forest Court are appointed by the Keeper including a Sergeant acting as herald and holder of the sword of the Forest Court, a Chronicler reporting Forest activity, and a Constable accounting for Forest funds earned by fines, licenses or fund raising.

As a Royal Forest within the East kingdom, we lastly pledge honorarium to the Royal Forest of the East Kingdom and to the Baronage of Carolingia. Individual Foresters shall not by demand nor requirement be expected to contribute to the honorarium.

To all these things do we set our hands on January 28, AS LVIII
