IGS Expedition to Warlingham

The expedition traverses a suburban area, heading out towards farmland.

The Imperial Geographical Society has conducted a successful expedition of exploration through woods, farmland and suburbs in and north of the British town of Warlingham.

The expedition was led by John of Zephyria, and was comprised of fifteen people, the largest number of people to have been on an IGS Expedition since 2011.

Emperor Jonathan I and Emperor Mother Margaret were amongst those taking part, with the other members of the expedition being from Carshalton Methodist Church, at which the walk was advertised.

The expedition encountered several areas of interest, including a disused chalk quarry and a beautiful patch of bluebell woods.

A steep hill near the start/end point of the expedition has been named Hyerdunscar Hill by the IGS, in memory of the recently deceased Edd (Hyerdunscar being the kennel that bred him).

Photographs and videos were taken of the expedition, and a short film narrated by the Emperor will be uploaded soon.

Edd’s ashes buried in Wrythe

Edd’s grave in Wrythe Pet Cemetery.

An urn containing the ashes of Edd has been buried in Wrythe Pet Cemetery after a short ceremony.

Edd, Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff and pet of the immediate Imperial Family, passed away earlier this month from a stroke.

This evening, a ceremony was held in Wrythe Public Park during which the urn containing Edd’s ashes was buried in the pet cemetery. The ceremony was attended by Emperor Jonathan I, Princess Consort Hannah, Emperor Father Terry and Emperor Mother Margaret.

Jonathan I and the Emperor Father buried the urn while the Emperor Mother recited a poem. The Princess Consort then passed the Emperor the gravemarker, which was placed on top. The gravemarker is made from an old chew-bone of Edd’s, which will be used to mark the place of burial until a permanent plaque is obtained.

The ashes were buried next to where those of Rose, Edd’s predecessor as Mascot, were buried in 2014.

Edd dies aged 8

Edd, beloved pet bullmastiff of the Imperial Family, has died aged 8 years old.

Edd passed away yesterday in the Imperial Residence after having a stroke.

Born in December 2008 and bought as a pet by the then Emperor Terry I in March 2009, Edd lived in the Imperial Residence with his distant relative Rose, whom he succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff – practically the ceremonial embodiment of Austenasia’s national animal – upon her death in April 2014.

With a superb showing pedigree, Edd was shown at ten dog shows between 2009 and 2012, and qualified to be shown at Crufts in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Edd has been succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff by Lily, Rose’s daughter who lives with a family in Surrey.

Edd will be cremated, and his ashes buried in Wrythe Pet Cemetery in the coming weeks.

Emperor Jonathan I with tourist Mike Lewis in Parliament Hall, Imperial Residence.

The Austenasian capital of Wrythe yesterday saw its second tourist visit.

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I met Mike Lewis at Carshalton railway station, from which he gave him a guided tour of the Carshalton Nations which concluded at Wrythe.

Princess Consort Hannah joined the Emperor and Mr Lewis towards the end of the tour.

Mr Lewis was shown Orly, the site of Rushymia and the Midget Empire, and Muschamp Alley, all sites which are relevant to the Carshalton Nations and their history, with the Emperor giving commentary as they went.

They then walked to Wrythe, where – by this point joined by Princess Consort Hannah – the tour concluded with lunch.

At the Imperial Residence in Wrythe, Mr Lewis met with Emperor Father Terry, Emperor Mother Margaret, Crown Princess Caroline and imperial pets Edd and Rosie.

He was also shown various documents and artefacts of historical interest, presented with a gift of an Austenasian postcard, and signed a guestbook newly acquired for the Imperial Residence.

This is the second time a tourist has visited Wrythe, the first having been Jonny Blair in March last year.

New pet expected for the Imperial Family

Emperor Father Terry visiting the kitten, Rosie, that the Imperial Family will take care of from 10th December.

The immediate Imperial Family have announced that they plan to acquire a pet kitten, to arrive in Wrythe on Saturday 10th December.

The family have decided that the kitten will be named Rosie, in honour of the late Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff, Rose, who passed away in April 2014.

Rosie will join Rose’s successor as Mascot, Edd, who – being of a very gentle temperament – is expected to get along well with the new arrival.

This will be the first time that the immediate Imperial Family have owned a pet cat, having previously only owned dogs, fish, and hamsters.

Rosie was born on 18 October to a cat owned by a friend of the family.

Imperial Family members return from Devon holiday

The seafront at Sidmouth.

Emperor Jonathan I, Crown Princess Caroline, and Emperor Mother Margaret yesterday returned from a week’s holiday in Devon.

The three imperials had spent the week at Sidhome Hotel in the town of Sidmouth, relaxing at the hotel as well as going out for day trips.

Activities by the three holidaymakers included a visit to a pottery studio where they made their own pots, exploring the picturesque village of Branscombe, building a “sea wall” on Sidmouth beach, and looking through various gift shops.

Emperor Father Terry was unable to come on the holiday due to the Imperial Family’s pet bullmastiff Edd requiring somebody to look after him, but had spent a week away with a friend earlier in the month to make up for missing out.

An album of photographs taken of the holiday by the Emperor can be seen at this link.

Lord John Gordon visits Carshalton

Lord John Gordon in Wrythe Public Park.

Lord John Gordon, Baron of Palasia, today visited Wrythe after being given a guided tour of the surrounding British town of Carshalton.

Lord John arrived at Morden tube station, where he was welcomed by Emperor Jonathan I and Countess Eritoshi Augusta.

They got a bus to Carshalton High Street, from where Lord John was given a guided tour of the nearby nation of Orly. From there, the tour continued, going past the former site of Rushymia and the Midget Empire before arriving at Wrythe.

Lord John there met Emperor Father Terry and imperial pet bullmastiff Edd. The Emperor, Emperor Father, Augusta, and Baron of Palasia then went out for lunch before driving back to Morden for Lord John to depart.

As well as being Baron of Palasia, Lord John Gordon is also its Representative, having been elected in the November 2013 elections. He served as Home Secretary between November 2013 and May 2014.
