||The Koguryo Royal Wedding - Full Coverage!
-- 9:30 PM EST
“I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride.”
These where the words said by Shaman TheSavior, after King M’hul and his bride Yun said their vows and accepted to bond their souls in marriage.
This was one of the most iconic moments in the history of the Kingdom of Winds and of course would require a complete coverage by Nexus Atlas on all events that marked such significant occasion for The Royal Family of Koguryo.
New Item and New Legend Marks
The wedding was supposed to start at 9pm, but around 8pm there were already many people waiting at the Kugnae Palace Courtyard. By the time that the wedding started, those who checked heroes list could see over 450 people were at the kingdoms and many of those were there for the wedding.
Once the doors to King MuHyul’s Jeongwon opened, people could talk to “Valentine” which was close by the entrance. By talking to her you could get two types of mark “Witnessed the Koguryo Royal wedding (Hyul 62, Spring)” or “Special Guest at Koguryo Royal wedding (Hyul 62, Spring)”. To obtain the “Witnessed” the you had to choose “No, I wasn’t” when Valentine asks if you were one of the people who helped break Yun’s curse.
If you chose the option “Yes, I was. I even got Koguryo’s Gratitude” she would check if you were carrying and if you were, she would take the Koguryo’s Gratitude item from your inventory and give you a Ceremonial Tea of Koguryo which is a sub-accessory item similar to the Tea pots that were given at a Mug’s mug event years ago, except that these are bonded to the owner. Check the stats below:
The Wedding Ceremony and the Coronation
The wedding ceremony started a few minutes late, but which wedding doesn’t? The bride was late as usual. As the ceremony hadn’t started yet, the special guests were being accommodated to the special area within the carpet next to the altar/throne. Vales, the Minister of Koguryo began the ceremony and introduced a bit of how the ceremony would happen. Shortly after, it was King M’hul who arrived from a door behind the throne and greeted everyone. Loxie, who is member of the Royal Ministry, then led the singing of Koguryo Royal Anthem.
Princess Yun arrived from south and crossed the whole walk way being carried in a white coach by two servants and was accompanied by two members of the Royal Ministry, Zylon and Toughman. Upon arriving to the altar, King Mhul greeted her and complimented on how beautiful she was.
The first part of the wedding ceremony was held by Minister Vales and was full of symbolism. She wrapped chickens in with ribbons to represent the binding of families that come with marriage and asked the groom and bride to share a tea. After the kogurian cultural part of the ceremony, it was time for Shaman TheSavior to make the union official.
Do you take Yun/Mhul as your faithful partner, to protect until the end of days, to keep in sickness and through health, and to love from now until eternity?, asked TheSavior and by no surprise of the crowd, both said “I do”. The Shaman then recognized the binding of souls together and granted them the approval from spirits. At last, finally married King M’hul and Yun had their first kiss, a quite long one in fact.
After being married to the King, it was time for Princess Yun to be crowned as Queen. Minister Vales removed the florets from Yun’s head and placed a blue tiny crown just like the one King M’hul wears on day to day basis. Citizens and Guests of Koguryo I present to you Queen Yun of Koguryo. After crowning the new Queen, Vales asked Guldar, the Chongun elder, to approach the Queen and grant her new title as “Queen of Koguryo”.
Once married, crowned and titled, the ceremony was finally over, the doors behind the throne were opened so the special guests could join the rest of the guests at the western part of the Jeongwon where King MuHyul and Queen Yun were having their reception, accepting the congratulations from the community and answering questions from the crowd about the future plans of the Royal couple. The King mentioned that first they would go on a honey moon, and then he would have a reform/expansion to the Koguryo Royal Palace and not in a distant future also announce the birth of an heir. A baby Prince seems to be coming in the way.
While the reception was happening, there was also an auction going on at Community events for people to have the chance to have the first dance(s) with the recently married King and Queen. The woman who won the first dance with the King was Tyrra who is primogeness of Bear clan. The man who won the first dance with the Queen was sort of a surprise because he’s a barbarian, Nejiijen. A total of 4 men and 4 women had the chance to have a solo dance with the royals and at the end, the Minister and Tougman ended dancing with the Royals too.
It seems that during the royal's dance someone was sort of desperate to appear here in Nexus Atlas. We don’t usually do this by request, but perhaps on such a special day it doesn't hurt to give attention to someone who really wanted it. There you go Chicago, you're on NA!
If anyone has interesting screenshots of the wedding please send to my email!
