Royal Blood

A new song, composed in memoriam of Her Majesty Elspeth Pendragon. This song was penned specifically for, and first performed at, the celebration of the Queen’s life at the Heartland Games of 1105. It describes events surrounding the kidnap of the crown prince and the murder of Her Majesty, in the hope that future generations may not forget the atrocities committed that day.

Royal Blood

by R B, Captain Eclipse and Martin Karlennon

A maiden touched the Pendragon throne,
A prince was in great danger,
Torn from his royal mothers arms,
By the fell hand of a stranger

The warband over hearing this,
Were filled with great alarm,
Determined now to rescue him,
Before he came to harm

Chorus:
Royal blood is spilt on Albion’s soils
Royal blood on the Emperors hands,
You may have cruelly slain our Queen,
Yet Albion still stands

Repeat Chorus

In Winchester that royal town,
They met with our fair lady,
The chains of Helsgate jail were broke,
By agents foul and shady

The Prince is taken from his home,
The Queen at once declared,
Prince Edward must be found my lords,
No effort must be spared,

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Our heros tracked the royal blood,
Cross valleys woods and fields,
Until the Prince was sighted,
And his captors charged to yield

But yield him up they would not do,
And so they stood to fight,
Our band struck down the young boys foes,
Withstood their sorcerous might

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

And as they turned toward the town,
A scout came to them shaking,
The Queen was stricken down by foes,
The royal court near taken

Foul Joshrim’s men had by his word,
The treaty torn misleading,
Against his promise taken steps,
To leave Queen Elspeth bleeding

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

They charged half mad into the town,
The royal blood was draining,
Assasins knife thrust in her breast,
No life force now remaining

So now Queen Elspeth’s dead and gone,
Her pattern has departed,
With bloody vengence we’ll fight on,
And finish what THEY started

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus
