Hug a Medievalist Day Giveaway 2018!

It's almost here! That day I know you, like I, await breathlessly to roll around each year . . . Hug a Medievalist Day (March 31st)! And I'm celebrating with another giveaway!

This year I'm giving away not one, but two prizes, which means there will be TWO winners! This year's theme is Love and Chivalry, inspired by the artwork of the Codex Manesse, a collection of High German Medieval poetry collected between the years 1304-1340 (approximately) that included 137 miniature paintings representing each of the poets in the collection. The poet in the pictures on these prizes was named Bernger von Horheim. You can read more about Bernger here and more about the Codex Manesse here.

1st place winner will win this 100 piece "Love and Chivalry" puzzle.

2nd place winner will win this 18 oz "Love and Chivalry" water bottle.

Enter via the Rafflecopter form below. NOTE: The first entry is REQUIRED. You must answer the question: Name a medievalist you'd like to hug. It can be someone real (like King Richard the Lionheart), someone fictional (Robin Hood, King Arthur, a character from a favorite novel), or even someone alive today who likes to dress up in medieval garb and attend medieval faires (a husband, a son or daughter, etc). Just have fun with the answers. If you'd like to share your answer in a comment on this blog post as well as on the entry form, please do!

All the other entry options are completely optional. (Don't see a Rafflecopter form? Just click on the link to go to the Rafflecopter page.)
