Arts, Sciences and Bardic Competition 2017

This year’s championship is inspired by Frederick Barbarossa, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire from 1155 to 1190. A chivalrous, intelligent knight who understood Latin, enjoyed German poetry, and was interested in history and law, Emperor Barbarossa was a skilled diplomat who showed deep determination and vigor in his passion for justice.
