We, JOHN by the Grace God King of Talossa and of all its Realms and Regions, King of Cézembre, Sovereign Lord and Protector of Pengöpäts and the New Falklands, Defender of the Faith, Leader of the Armed Forces, Viceroy of Hoxha and Vicar of Atatürk, to Our Kingdom, all Dukes, Counts, Barons, Justices, Knights, Jesters, Citizens and Cestours, and free men, as all Our officers, servants, and subjects whomsoever to whom these presents shall come, Greetings.
WHEREAS, Alexandreu Davinescu has been a citizen of Our Kingdom of Talossa for more than eight years, to be exact since 9 June 2006; and
WHEREAS, Alexandreu Davinescu has served Our Kingdom, and Our Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic, in a great many elected offices, notably in one quite successful term as Our Seneschal, and also as Senator, as Distain, as Minister of Stuff, as Member of the Cosa, and I’m sure in a great many other offices and capacities that I’ve forgotten; and
WHEREAS, he has been at the forefront of the effort not merely to reestablish Talossan journalism, but to take it to higher levels than it ever before achieved; and
WHEREAS, he is learned in the law, a Member of the Royal Talossan Bar, and the author of a useful book about the law; and
WHEREAS, he has assisted in formulating a great deal of legislation, most especially of El Lexhatx of which he is the principal compiler and organizer; and
WHEREAS, he has frequently provided invaluable advice (often sub rosa) to the Seneschal and other high dignitaries, including Us, on at least one notable occasion restraining Us from really putting Our foot Royal right in it; and
WHEREAS, his participation on Wittenberg has been for many years constant and of great value;
THEREFORE, for these, and for about twenty other reasons, We declare Alexandreu Davinescu to be an all-around GREAT Talossan; and
THEREFORE, We, being satisfied with the abilities and character of Alexandreu Davinescu, and approving the character of Davinescu, are graciously pleased to condescend thereto. And it is Our will and pleasure and We do hereby admit Sir Alexandreu into the Order of Knighthood The Order of the Nation. So say We, John, by the Grace of God King of Talossa and of all its Realms and Regions, King of Cézembre, Sovereign Lord and Protector of Pengöpäts and the New Falklands, Defender of the Faith, Leader of the Armed Forces, Viceroy of Hoxha and Vicar of Atatürk, to Our Kingdom.
Given under Our hand Royal at Our residence in the city of Centennial in Colorado, on the Feast of Saint Aaron, Abbot of Cézembre, this being the twenty-second day of June in the year of salvation 2014, of the independence of Talossa the thirty-fifth, and of Our reign the eighth.
