Crowns[edit | edit source]
St. Charles Crown[edit | edit source]The St. Charles Crown (in High Sarovian: Coro eui Saïntos Carolus), is the crown of the Holy Graalian Emperor officially used for the first time in the coronation of Constantine IX Vasa as the legitimate and only defender of the Stefanist faith in the graal, that is, bearer of the titles of Holy Western Emperor and Holy Eastern Emperor, which together become the title of Holy Graalian Emperor. Although it was only built in 300 AS by the resident gnomes of Swamp Town, the creation of a crown for the title of Holy Graalian Emperor had already been discussed since the coronation of Constantine VI Vasa as Caesar of Classic. However, due to lack of resources at the time, the project was forgotten and would only be discussed again in 300 AS, the year of the coronation of Constantine IX Vasa. Currently, in addition to the crown representing the title of Holy Graalian Emperor, it represents the Sarovian Commonwealth as a whole, symbolizing the unification of peoples under Constantine IX Vasa, crowned by His Holiness Pope Clement I by Stefan's will.
The St. Charles Crown is made of pure gold found in the caves of Destiny, in addition to jewels and a purple fabric on its surface. Already at the top of the crown, the presence of the Stefanic Cross can be noticed, which represents the Stefanic Faith, and mainly, Stefan's blessing under the one who was crowned as Holy Graalian Emperor. In addition, one can also note the presence of the Zor Rose, which represents the alliance between the Holy Stefanic See and the Zor-Mako-Vasa Dynasty.
A curiosity that few people know is that St. Charles Crown before being sent to the Church of Saint Constantine in Sarholm, New Sarovia, after its construction it was sent directly to the Basilica of Saint Tristam, Tristopoli, in Estos Papal States. From then on, His Holiness Pope Clement I performed rituals to bless the crown for a week, in addition to always being in extreme communion with Stefan. During this period, the Crown remained completely isolated and the presence of persons other than the Pontifex Maximus was prohibited.
Currently, St. Charles Crown remains safe and preserved at Borhaus Palace and is constantly protected by members of the Blue Guard Corps. Additionally, every Stefanic year, the Eastern Patriarch must perform a blessing in the presence of the crown and Stefan to ensure that Stefan's will continues to be carried out.
Imperial State Crown[edit | edit source]The Imperial State Crown also referred to as the Imperial Sarovian Crown (in High Sarovian: Saroviano Coro) is the Crown of the New Sarovian Empire and Her Colonies and Dominions since 232 AS, more precisely, built during the late reign of Constantine V Mako-Vasa and used early in the reign of Carolus XII Vasa. The crown is one of the oldest jewels of the Vasa Regalia (in High Sarovian: Royavoara Vasa). The Crown was built by order of the King of the Sarovians, Constantine V Mako-Vasa as his last act as Sarovian monarch. Thus, the best craftsmen and several gnomes worked for days to create a crown judged as "perfect". Although many enemies of the New Sarovian Empire such as rebels tried to steal it from the Leda Palace (the palace in which Tel Majis Imperialò, Royo y Imperad resides), none of them managed to steal it and put their filthy hands under the Imperial Crown.
It can be noticed in the Imperial Crown the absurd amount of gold (found in the province of Destiny in South of Estos). Additionally, the band has gemstones from the Holy Stefanic Grails (the Grail of Azure and Gules), and the center of the Zor Rose has gems from the Grail of Or. Only the Grail of Vert is missing, as its gemstone is in the Constantine I's Crown. It is also worth mentioning the remarkable presence of the Stefanic Cross at the top of the Sarovian Crown, which represents the Stefanic Faith as the foundation of Sarovian society and its sovereignty.
Old Crown of the Sarovians[edit | edit source]
The Old Crown of the Sarovians also referred to as the Royal Crown of the Sarovians (in High Sarovian: Old Coro eui Sarovians) was the first crown of the New Sarovian Empire used from the reign of Aros I Mako until the end of the reign of Constantine V Mako-Vasa, where the old crown was replaced by the current Imperial Crown. Although it is a very old crown jewel, it was lost during the First Saro-Aurean War. However, years later, she would be found by an Soldier of the Empire of Sacro passing through Tristopoli (also known as York Town). Thus, the Crown was handed over to the General of the II Corps, who would hand it over to Her Imperial Majesty, the Queen Brianna I Vasa-Nassau, who would keep it safe at the Borhaus Palace until the ascension of Constantine IX Vasa as Sarovian Emperor, who, would take the Old Crown to the Continent of Boreas in City of Constantia during his travels through the region as a gift for the creation of the newest crown colony, also known as Remerra Saroviano.
Little is known about the construction of the crown, but historians theorize that it was built by Sarovian craftsmen unlike other crowns which are usually built by gnomes. Its material (gold) was from the Sarholm region, which is one of the most resistant golds in the Graalian World, which, unfortunately today, is practically impossible to find due to the great development of the city. However, it was not until the reign of Constantine IX Vasa that the Old Crown of the Sarovians would receive a heraldry for the purposes of research and preservation of history.
Crown of the Oxerians[edit | edit source]The Crown of the Oxerians, also referred to as the Royal Crown of the Oxeria (in High Sarovian: Coro eui do Oxerians) was the first and only crown of the old Oxerian Empire during the reigns of Twister I, Emily I, Emily II and Lelia I, and would later become a Crown Jewel of the House of Vasa through Constantine IX Vasa, or known in the Oxerian Kingdom as Constantine I Vasa.
The Crown was built by Oxerian craftsmen in Nira Province at the behest of their first monarch Twister I. However, the Crown would become part of Emily I Oxeria's lineage upon her coronation as the first Oxerian Empress. This would completely change the future and fate of the Crown and the Oxerian Empire. During the reign of Emily I Oxeria, several enemies tried to steal the crown but without relative success, this made the Oxerian Empire stable. During this period, Emily I Oxeria married William I Vasa of New Sarovian Empire, and this was the first contact of the House of Vasa with the Crown of the Oxerians, where it was used by William I Vasa as Saro-Oxerian Emperor . However, this contact with the Crown of the Oxerians would be quickly broken after the end of the Saro-Oxeria union. Years later, Emily II Oxeria (took over after Emily I Oxeria's abdication) attempted several coups against the New Sarovian Empire, and this drastically angered her rightful heir, known as Lelia Kaine (daughter of Sir Henry Vasa). Thus, Lelia Kaine took the throne of Oxeria for herself and passed her claims to Constantine IX Vasa through the Treaty of Nira, which made the Crown of the Oxerians the perpetual property of the House of Vasa.
One can notice on the Crown a crimson fabric in addition to Nira Province's own gold, as well as jewels on its band and a Stefanic Cross on top of the Crown, representing the conversion of the former pagan empire of Oxeria to a kingdom of followers and faithful to stefan.
Crown of the Aurean Empereur[edit | edit source]The Crown of the Aurean Empereur, also referred to as the Crown of the Aureans (in High Sarovian: Coro eui do Aurean Imperad or Coro eui do Aureans) was the first and only crown of the Aurean Empire since 224 AS, more precisely, during the reign of Kevlar I Vaughn, until the present day. The Crown symbolizes the Aurean hegemony over the Continent of Ostos as well as its total tradition and culture. For a long time the crown belonged to the Vaughn Dynasty led by Kevlar I Vaughn, whose later also became the property of the House of Vasa through the coronation of Constantine IX Vasa as Aurean Emperor through the Act of Reclamation and Relinquishment, thus, the crown would become the property of the Dominion of Carolusburg, the rightful successor of the Aurean Empire.
The Crown was built in 224 AS by order of His Imperial Excellency, the Aurean Emperor, Kevlar I Vaughn. It is not known for sure how and who built it, but it is theorized that it was built by Aurean peasants who lived in Aurean feudal society. In the future, the crown would become the possession of the House of Vasa officially after the end of the Second Saro-Aurean War, more precisely, after the former Aurean Lords fled the Aurean Empire to the newly created Dominion of Carolusburg with the aim of crowning Constantine IX Vasa as the rightful and only Aurea Emperor. This became even more concrete when the former Aurean Emperor, Cassio I Avidius-Vaughn, through the Act of Reclamation and Relinquishment would hand over his claims to the throne to Constantine IX Vasa. Thus, ending the aurean hegemony in the Continent of Ostos.
Constantine I's Crown[edit | edit source]
The Constantine I's Crown, also referred to as the Crown of the Grand Kingdom of the State (in High Sarovian: Coro eui Constantine I or Coro eui tel Etaso) is the second and current official crown of the Grand Kingdom of the State, built in 245 AS, years after Constantine VI Vasa's claim to the title of Grand King of the State, thus taking the State for the Vasa Dynasty forever. The Crown receives its name (Constantine I's Crown) as a form of direct homage to the first monarch of the Grand Kingdom of the State of the Vasa Dynasty, this being Constantine VI Vasa or also referred to as Constantine I of the State. The Crown is currently at Cordias Palace, Grand Kingdom of the State, in Continent of Orios (also known as Roblox), being defended daily by the State Horse Guard (SHG).
The Crown has in its band the gemstom of the Grail of Vert. In addition, one can note the quantity and quality of the Crown's gold, which is found in Cordias Province. Furthermore, at its top one can notice the Stefanic Cross, which represents the devotion of the Grand Kingdom of the State to the Stefanic Faith. In addition, the presence of the Zor Rose, which represents the Vasa Dynasty under the Grand Kingdom of the State, is noted.
Crown of Roisa[edit | edit source]
The Crown of Roisa, also referred to as the Crown of Reuss (in High Sarovian: Coro eui Roisa or Coro eui Royo eui Roisa) é a coroa de um Vasa Realm conhecido como Kingdom of Reuss. The Kingdom of Reuss is an ancient realm that dates back to 2012 and 2013 under the name of Roisa. It was founded by the old Zor monarchs under the title of Rex Roisa (in High Sarovian: Royo eui Roisa), specifically Carolus IV Zoar. It is the oldest of the Vasa Realms and has been so interconnected with Sarovian history that it is very hard to separate them.
The Kingdom of Roisa began when Carolus IV began the transition to "Sarovianisation", renaming his office from Rex Septentrionis to Rex Roisa, named after the mountain range that surrounded the old missing city of Sars and the north of Estos. The Kingdom went through many monarchs at peace and a golden age of literature, but eventually Carolus V abdicated in favour of Iohannes who became Carolus VI. Immediately the new King had declared war on the State, and won four successful battles in the north of Estos - though none of them proved decisive. After a battle on the outskirts of the old city of Sar, those faithful to Stefan and Carolus VI had finally discovered their ancestral home was missing - and could never find its archeological roots. Carolus VI had pushed his army near the River Nafets, and engaged an army of the State in a pitched battle. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, the skirmishers of the State fired a volley of arrows which were caught by Stefan’s grasp, saving the King from death, but when a Roisan archer was persuaded by the Stephanist influence of Xor and fired at Carolus VI, the arrow lodged under his arm and he was dragged from the battlefield, and died the next day, making the new King Carolus VII. The next morning, both sides began to fight again, and by night, both sides broke off, with no clear winner. For four days afterwards, Carolus VII and the ancient King of the State, Auel I, negotiated peace. Terms were finally found on the fifth day, where the State would cede all lands north of the River Nafets to Roisa when Auel I died, and pay the equivalent of 60,000 Saros today. Upon the march back to Roisian territory, Carolus VII died due to the cold of winter, leaving no heir. His officers hid this fact from the men until it was discovered outside of the Roisian capital, where many defected and went back to their farms. Afterwards, the title became secondary - with the main focus as the Emperor of Imperial York
Historians have not found any trace of an image about the Crown of Roisa, which remains lost within the Sarovian territories of Estos. Currently, there is no Crown heraldry. Furthermore, the only evidence that the title actually exists is because it is present in the official style of Constantine IX Vasa: "Holy Graalian Emperor, King of the Sarovians, Emperor of the Sarovian Commonwealth, Grand King of the State, King of Reuss......."

Coronation Ring[edit | edit source]The Coronation Ring, also referred to as Ring of the Sarovians (in High Sarovian: WIP) is the ring used since the reign of Constantine I Mako in the Coronation ceremony of the title of King of the Sarovians. In the center is a large octagonal sapphire covered with rubies forming a cross, surrounded by 14 brilliant diamonds. The overall design is intended to represent the Cross of Saint Tristam on a blue background representing the New Sarovian Empire. Before the reign of Constantine I Mako, monarchs usually received a new ring symbolizing their "marriage" to the nation.
It is not known for sure who built the ring, but it is theorized that it was craftsmen of Constantine I Mako who received a value that would reach 100,000 Saros today to perform this service - which at the time was seen as a stupid attitude by population by the monarch spending a lot of money on "futile" things.
Currently, the Coronation Ring is used in speeches from the throne during the opening of parliament in both New Sarovia and the Dominion of Philippia (although it is currently suspended).

Swords[edit | edit source]
Sword of Faith[edit | edit source]The Sword of Faith, also referred to as Sword of the Graal (in High Sarovian: WIP) is the sword awarded to the current holder of the title Defender of the Faith (in High Sarovian: Protegésse eun Fé). The sword was first bestowed on the King of the Sarovians Constantine I Mako by His Holiness the Pope of the Stefanic Church. As of this episode, the Sword has remained until the present day in the possession of the House of Vasa, more precisely as a Crown Jewel of the Vasa Regalia (in High Sarovian: Royavoara Vasa).
The sword has a total length of 110 cm and the 95.3 cm blade is made of steel. The pointed blade has been sharpened several times and shows on each side an embossed sword sweeper's mark in the shape of a circle inscribed with a purple jewel. The hilt of the sword is made of pure gold (found in the depths of Estos, more specifically in Destiny Province). The sword was designed to be used point-up for celebration, as clearly seen by the arrangement of work on the scabbard. In turn, the scabbard of the sword is 101 cm long and is made of pure gold wood. It is decorated with nine extremely rare gems found on every continent of the Graalian World.The Sword of the Faith was first mentioned in history in a letter written by Constantine I Mako to his heir and successor, Constantine II Mako, around the year 219 AS, where, it is described in an excerpt from this letter:
"It is necessary for the sword to be fashioned in the province of Swamp Town below the great Nafets River that divides the northern and southern territories, and primarily acts as the border for our Empire. The gnomes of Swamp Town are experts in crafting equipment..."

Robes of the Aurean Emperor[edit | edit source]The Robes of the Aurean Emperor, or also referred to as the Robes of the Aurean Emperur (in High Sarovian: WIP) is the official coronation robe worn during the coronation ceremonies of the title of King of Carolusburg and Aurea, and also during the opening of the Carodian Parliament at speeches from the throne.
The robe was made by the former Aurean Dauphin, Remus Artois-Avidius. However, it was only used from 290 AS, more precisely during the reign of Kevlar V Vaughn. It is noteworthy that ancient Aurean monarchs before Kevlar V Vaughn possessed a coronation robe. However, this tunic was destroyed during the Second Saro-Aurean War, when Sarovian sailors invaded Valeroche and destroyed nearly all of the Vaughn Regalia (in High Sarovian: Royavoara Vaughn), preserving only a few valuables. The robe currently resides in Escora Hall in the Dominion of Carolusburg (the rightful successor to the Aurean Empire). Thus, preserving the aurean tradition of keeping its objects on the Continent of Ostos.
