The Ninteenth and twenty-second Queen of the Middle Kingdom, Ithriliel also served the Kingdom as Kingdom seneschal from May 1981 to May 1984. Ithriliel is credited with creating the first Queen's Favor. Ithriliel also created the Order of the Silver Oak for accomplishments in the Sciences, meaning those creative crafts and artistic talents applied directly to physical and practical things. Examples are Armoring, decorative metalwork, jewelry, leatherwork, woodwork, cooking, etc. It was deemed proper to separate such recognition from that given by the Order of the Willow (created by Queen Jessica of the Willows), which originally recognized both the Arts and the Sciences. The Willow was then defined to recognize accomplishments in the Arts; meaning things like calligraphy, illumination, music, needlework, embroidery, etc. The arts and sciences are together recognized as one for those members of the Order of the Laurel who by their accomplishments, determine the State of the Art in all those endeavors.
