Congratulations to our Hug a Medievalist Day winners! Debbie G (who wanted to hug Robin Hood) won the Love and Chivalry puzzle and Judith M (who wanted to hug Broderick MacConnaway from the book, Heart of a Highlander) won the Love and Chivalry water bottle.
Other popular votes for hugs on Hug a Medievalist Day included King Arthur, Guinevere, and Merlin.
These names also received some much appreciated hugs: Joan de Beaufort, Abelard, Albucasis, the Lairds of Leckie, Robert the Bruce, Jeanne Hachette, Lancelot, King Edward Longshanks, William Marshal, Robert Gisgard, Thomas á Becket, Johann Gutenberg, William the Conqueror, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Bluetooth the Dane, Leonardo da Vinci, William Tell, Sir John of Canterbury, Marco Polo, and Ivan the Bonelss. Literary choices included Geoffrey Chaucer, Umberto Eco, Romeo, and two kind people who nominated characters from my novels, Gerolt de Warenne (from Courting Cassandry) and Triston de Brielle (from Illuminations of the Heart). :-)
Thank you, everyone! I loved reading through this list! We'll do this again next year!
