History

Queens in Vrenada aren’t made so by birth; Sofia became queen by winning the heart and mind of the brave, intelligent Alfred. As a girl, she loved horseback riding and games, often challenging her elders to games of chess. It was this adventurous spirit mixed with thoughtful intelligence that first attracted Alfred, years before he would become king. When she became queen, a dress of sea blue was made for her, in recognition of the importance of the sea in the life of Vrenada. She was also given the Jewel of Iorr, an ancient relic precious to the kingdom. Her crown, like the king’s, was made with dragon fire.

Story

The Kingdom of Vrenada considers ruling a sacred duty, so its people take seriously the installation of kings and queens. Although all queens wear the Jewel of Iorr, goddess of spring, and the crown of Vrenada, each queen is fitted with a uniquely designed dress, representative of her personality and loves. Queen Sofia spent many hours as a youngster riding horses on the shores of the Ruguk Sea, always pondering the mysteries of that ever-changing water. So when the time came for her to select her queen’s dress, she requested several shades of blue, a darker shade to represent the sea’s power, and a lighter shade to recognize its bounty. She had these colors hemmed in white, a symbol of age, to remind her of the wisdom of Vrenada’s elders, which she always hoped to heed. Finally, thin gold stripes were added as symbols of wealth, that she might remember how Vrenada maintained its prosperity through peace and wisdom.
