Accompanying the Queen’s Court each year are a group of charming and sweet little ladies known as the Conquistadorables.
Nominated by the community these girls, ages 7 to 9, capture the hearts of all they meet throughout the De Soto Heritage Festival.
To nominate a young lady for participation, please inquire here.
In 2009, the Hernando de Soto Historical Society celebrated its 70th Anniversary with a reunion of their former Queens and Princesses.
Coming together for the first time in history, these community leaders realized the potential of organizing their efforts to do charitable works and the Sisterhood of the Crown was born. In 2011, Alumni of the Queen’s Court were invited to join the group.
Today the Sisterhood of the Crown gives back to our home community of Manatee County through efforts of scholarship, support, and philanthropy. Joining this energetic group of ladies is a wonderful way to remain active in the Hernando de Soto Historical Society for years to come.
