Viscounty scroll text

Greetings scribes of Drachenwald!
I came across a lovely blog where the lady chronicled her period scroll texts, and thought: hey, I've done a few specialty scrolls where I composed fancy text, I should publish them somewhere! How about here, for example?

So, Viscounty scroll text for Elizabeth of Woodbury:
Sven and Siobhan, by right of Arms and grace of beauty King and Queen of Drachenwald and all its Principalities, Baronies, shires, cantons and strongholds to all dukes and duchesses, counts and countesses, viscounts and viscountesses and all Our other subjects whatsoever to whom these Presents shall come, Greetings. Know ye that We of Our especial grace, certain knowledge and mere motion do by these Presents advance, create and prefer unto Our Elizabeth of Woodbury to the state, degree, style, dignity and title of Viscountess of Our Realm. Having ruled over Our Principality of Nordmark with grace and wisdom Our Elizabeth of Woodbury is worthy of honour and praise, and of this high rank. Further do We affirm her the sole and exclusive use of Arms by making these Our Letters Patent.
Done this 17 march anno societatis XLVI at Nordmark Coronet Tourney in Aros.

Viscounty scroll text for SvartulvR Kåte:

Rightful King and Queen of Drachenwald and all its Principalities, Baronies, shires and cantons, Sven and Siobhan to all here present dukes and duchesses, counts and countesses, viscounts and viscountesses and all Our other subjects whatsoever to whom these Presents may come, Greetings. Know ye that We are grateful that Our Principality of Nordmark has been justly ruled over by Our SvartulvR Kåte and that We therefore by Our especial grace, certain knowledge and mere motion to by these Presents advance, create and prefer unto the said SvartulvR Kåte to the state, degree, style, dignity and title of Viscount of Our Realm. Further We reaffirm his right to sole and exclusive use of Arms by Letters Patent.
Done this 17 march anno societatis XLVI at Nordmark Coronet Tourney in Aros.

Since SvartulvR was already a Laurel, his Patent of Arms came with that, so slightly different wording here. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures of these scrolls. But they were done in a letter style, landscape format, and with a tab of the parchment (I used real parchment) cut to fold down ready for a seal to be attached.
