Summer Court

The Summer Court is one of the Faerie Courts, ruling over part of Faerie in the Nevernever. It is ruled by the three Summer Queens.

Description

Summer is most often associated with growth and heat which is directly opposed to the winter court. The Summer Court is ruled by three Queens, collectively known as the Summer Queens. In addition, Summer counts many Sidhe and lesser fairies as members of the greater Summer Court. Finally, as with the Winter Court, a single mortal champion is appointed by the Summer Queens; the Summer Knight.

The power of the Summer Court and it rulers is tied closely to the seasons in the mortal world. Summer gains power from Midwinter to Midsummer and loses power from Midsummer to Midwinter. During the time Summer is in ascendance, the Stone Table resides in the realm of Summer.
