From the Baron...

Missive

Unto the populace of Selviergard,

The Barony of Selviergard welcomes Shawn and Arabella, our 61st Prince and Princess of Oertha! Huzzah to our new Prince and Princess! Long may they reign!

This Winter Coronet, held in the lands of Winter's Gate, was complete with pageantry, honor, chivalry, and splendor as we celebrated thirty years as a Principality. To those that fought on the lists in the Coronet Tournament, the Roses Tournament, or with the Royal Guild of Fence on Sunday: your skill, bravery, and nobility bring honor to these lands and her people. To those who lent a hand at Oertha's Winter Coronet in any capacity: your service and compassion are what makes this group strong and vibrant.

This will be a very busy year for us with many events within the Principality of Oertha and here in the lands of Selviergard. pas d'armes, tournaments, demonstrations, feasts and more await us! I encourage everybody to attend these upcoming events so that we can enjoy The Dream together as family and friends.

In the coming month Selviergard and Eskalya will be hosting a Collegium with many classes to attend. This is a great opportunity to learn new things and to teach each other skills that you have learned along our shared journey together. I look forward to seeing everybody there and to learning something new.

In Service,

Halfdan
Barônos of Selviergard

From the Prince and Princess...

Missive

Greetings from Their Highnesses…

We are humbled by the warmth and welcoming arms in Oertha and are proud to be Your 61st Prince and Princess.

Since we have only been in these lands a short time and so few people know us, we thought it proper to do a small introduction. I am Sir Shawn Robert of Kilkenny and have been active in the SCA for 20 years. I am a Knight made of the Kingdom of Atenveldt and born of House Inverted Norse-Irish. My lady love is Her Ladyship Arabella Eleanor Hamilton of Rosewood and has been active in the SCA for over 18 years. She is Protégé to Vis Count Sir Gerald the Inverter of Kilkenny. She was Apprentice to Bannthegn Mistress Penelope Dowell of Avonsford, whose light now burns as bright as the sun from the heavens above. She has been taken under the wing of her former Apprentice Sister, now Mistress Ealasaid nic Suibhne. She was captured during a raid by my people in Scotland, I fell in love with her, and took her for my bride. We were heads of House Inverted for many years which is a large household once known only for heavy combat which has branched into youth fighting, archery, rapier, arts and sciences, and service.

We hope to make as many events as possible and look forward to getting to know everyone and posting our progress. We have started with a very modest Court, as we are looking forward to getting to know the warm people of Oertha. Viscountess Lilla aet Sceaphylle is our Head of Court. Viscountess Dagmar the Red is the head of Her Highness’s Guard.

We do not have any allergies or dislikes, love the colors blue and white, and enjoy having fun. My princess does have a small appetite so please do not be offended if she only takes a few bites.
We can be reached via oerthancoronets@yahoo.com, invertednurse@gmail.com, Facebook, or calls or texts.

We look forward to a wonderful and fun Reign.

In Service to Oertha and the dream,

Shawn and Arabella
Prince and Princess of Oertha
