Chàrete, my dear fellow Ladonians!
I am the only now living member of the old noble family of the Lynx bearing a noble title, though there are some distant kouzens left out there, some of which I do not even know the names of.
My family have many historical persons which are widely known for their actions, but often so whithout their connections whith ladona ever being mentioned. Joan of Arx, or Jeanne d'Arx, is well known and remembered as a heroine despite the tragic ending of her life. Miyamoto Musashi, the swordsmaster from Nippon, was not originally a Lynceid, but married a Ladonian baroness during his seven years long travels out of his native country, and they had twins who grew up in Europe. These twins, named Castor and Polydeukes as a reminder of all Lynceids' ancient greek heritage as well as being children of the north wind of Scandinavia, are less known to the historians, and mostly remembered by their descendants. The Inuit shaman Tengir, my very own grandfather, was also a Ladonian Lynceid.
Now I, Symeon Lynkeios of Jens' children and baron of Ladonia, see that there are more Ladonians meeting in the computer web than i have ever met. Perhaps some of you are even my distant relatives. And so my question to you.
I am old, not as much in years as in tradition and heritage, and tired of trying to keep the memory of the Lynx alive, alone in seas of Non-Ladonians, and to me the Ladonia site on Internet is just to impersonal to fulfill my needs. Therefor i ask you if you would be my companion in a wilderness of information, keeping me up to date with the state's affairs and discussing news as well as history and philosophy. If you are interested in conversation whith an old baron with new ideas, then please send a mail.
Baron Symeon of Lynx, founder of the Order of Oculus-Manus
