So is it Master at Arms or Master of Arms? Or both? What does the SCA corpora and the heraldic laws say? - Cian Gillebhrath 14:47, 8 Jun 2006 (EST)

Also, I was under the impression that Masters at Arms are not actually part of the Order of Chivalry and therefore not considered knights. Is this so? - Cian Gillebhrath 13:01, 30 August 2006 (EST)

Masters of Arms are part of the Chivalry, but are not Knights. Basically, it's a knighthood for people who, for whatever reason, can't or won't swear Fealty to the Throne. User:Paul Matisz Aug 30, 12:10 EST

  • So Masters of Arms contribute to the polling just as much as knights? - Cian Gillebhrath
    • Yes, from Corpora, "a. The Chivalry: The Chivalry consists of two equal parts: Knighthood and Mastery of Arms. No one may belong to both parts of the order at one time. When a member is admitted to the Chivalry by the Sovereign, the choice of which part of the order to join is made by the new member. The candidate must be considered the equal of his or her prospective peers with the basic weapons of tournament combat. To become a Knight, the candidate must swear fealty to the Crown of his or her kingdom during the knighting ceremony. Masters of Arms may choose to swear fealty, but are not required to do so."
