Evolution of Toast Tradition

This tradition has gotten muddied by time and rumor. Sometimes this happens, sometimes it's the youngest knight who toasts TRMs and the oldest knight who toasts TRHs. I have seen times when the person to give the toast was sitting high table for some reason, it was passed along to someone else. In cases where there are not two knights present at feast, I've seen other peerages take up the toast. I've heard of of a case where there no peers at feast so the toasts were given by a member of the Split Arrow and a members of the Legion of the Bear.

The senior knight gives the first toast of the evening, to the Crown. The second most senior knight makes the second toast. This is not by OP rank, but by creation as a knight.

Yes, lacking a Peer, I think the highest ranking persons present should make the toast - it is only fitting. And I think the muddling is a result of people not knowing our past. This type of toasting traditions is very close to what is done in Great Britain.
