Facta non Verba—Deeds not Words

The Rose Companies are resolved to better exalt the Virtues of Prowess, Courage, Honesty, Largess, Loyalty, Faith, Courtesy, and Franchise and to display said virtues in martial deeds, valiant acts, and grand presentation. Companions of the Rose Companies endeavor to increase, advance and uphold the banner of chivalry as it was practiced by our noble ancestors. The Rose Companies are dedicated to the use of Equestrian Arms.

Each Company can have a contingent of foot soldiers, known as the Thorns of the Rose. These Thorns are fine and noble swordsmen and women who shall show themselves to be the pinnacles of chivalry both on and off the field.

The Company of the Sable Rose was founded on the concept that pageantry, spectacle, chivalry, and authentic representations are integral to the recreation of Historical Tournaments. Furthermore a consistent ambience of Courtly Love is intertwined in this presentation of homage to the Ladies of the Rose in a grand Company of the Sable Rose Emprise once a year and at the Romancing the Rose Rapier tourneys throughout the year.
