Awards in the Principality of An Tir

The lists of holders of awards was last updated: April 28, AS LI (2017).

This page of the West Kingdom web site awards list system is used to explain the various awards that are listed in the West Kingdom Awards List that may be given by The Prince and Princess of An Tir.

Descriptions of awards and tokens comes from a variety of sources, including but not limited to: The Laws of the Principality of An Tir, the West Kingdom Ceremony Book, an article in the West Kingdom Herald's Handbook on Awards, Baronial websites, or heralds, etc.

There are sometimes discrepencies for awards between An Tir and the central Kingdom databases, as reporting was not very accurate for some time. Another issue is a potential problem of someone in An Tir running a program that attempted fill in missing information, however, a program doesn't stop and ask (unless set up that way) if it should do this in some cases. I have attempted to deal with as much of this as I can.

The data included here for An Tir is up to the end of the reign of the last Prince and Princess of An Tir, January 16, 1982 (A.S. XVI). After that An Tir became their own Kingdom.
