The Guardian of the Gauntlet is an occasional rapier tournament held in Ansteorra. When it was started, it was intended to be a grand, kingdom-wide tournament that was not tied to the championship of a particular group.

The winner gets bragging rights for the tournament, a fancy gauntlet, and the responsibility of holding the next tournament. There is no set schedule for when it is held, but typically it's one to three years after the previous one. These days it usually gets held in conjunction with some other, non-fighting event.


This is a list of the Guardians:

Tivar Moondragon (Note that I've never actually won this tournament, but I was given the right gauntlet at the initial Guardian tournament; the winner got the left one, thus some folks include me in the list of holders of the Gauntlet.)
