The Prince of the Ivy House took part in Ysabelle's coronation as the Starwife. The Silver Acorn had been entrusted to him for the occasion. It was his task to present it to Ysabelle and place it around her neck.

Role in The Oaken Throne[]

The prince comes forward and bows when he reaches the dais where Ysabelle sits enthroned. He makes a speech about how she was tested under the firmament and proven worthy of the Starwifeship. As he lowers the necklace, he is stunned when Ysabelle pushes it away and says she cannot accept it. He reminds her that the acceptance has already been made and that the ceremony is a mere formality, but she doesn't care. He is horrified as Ysabelle pushes past him on her way to find Vespertilio.
