The roar from the crowd could be heard a full mile away. The King recited the names of the warriors of the Earl's Court.

"Marquess Etien De Rochefort, Duc Guillaume le Courageux. Robert de Giselles, Baron Ivan Loben," The crowds uttered no calls until all the names were listed. "Etienne d'Arden, Sir Hillier...", by thunder, thought the Marquis, I suddenly feel younger. He heard more names of the Earl's Court and the names went on, his own among them. " Lord Nike, , Sir Boudwin De Brienne ,Duc Bohemond de Bastonne Sir Thomas de Bastonne, Sir Gindle,". The names were called off until there were no more names to call.

Medals were issued to each member of the Earl’s Court who had fought in the War. What made these medals separate from the others were the words . “Frêres Dans La Guerre Et Dans La Paix” [Brothers in War and in Peace] inscribed below the image and the seal of the King.

The king addressed the multitudes "Behold Your Heroes, Citizens!"

The crowd went wild, flowers were strewn on the road, people began to sing, merchants rushed to their shops, their tents, their stalls. The celebration was beginning. Some knights joined the crowds many went to their tents or apartments to change and gather up their families and to join the celebration.

The Marquis arrived at his apartment, very tired. "There is more energy lost at the ceremony, than in combat, I feel" His wife, happy with her husband answered, "It is your age dear, nothing more..." He ignored the comment, for it was true.
