Behind every great Noble, there are retinue...
Those are the attendants that you see following often behind Their Excellencies of Dragon's Mist as well as the Their Majesties and Highnesses of An Tir.
Retinue is an extremely important part of every reign and any court activity that you see; they attend the Royals, organize court proceedings, are are often the organizers of all of the pageantry that makes these experiences so rich.
For the court of Jose and Ana, a staff of permanent retinue has been established for the core positions, however they would LOVE to have volunteers- experienced and brand new- to help fill out that retinue at both local and kingdom events. If you have questions, or would like to volunteer, please contact the retinue listed below-

They have been granted our authority to make decisions and direct activities on their Excellencies behalf. Any business that needs to come to their Excellencies should go through a Head of Retinue first.
Head of retinue will keep track of our progress and initiate (approx 2 weeks out) the movements of the retinue team as a whole for each even TE's attend. They will also make a generalized call out for attendants for each event once on the Baronial Facebook pages.
