Well met. My full name is Caitriona ni Bhriain. I can be reached via caitrionanib at gmail dot com
I have been a involved with the Society
for Creative Anachronism since about 1980, when I attended my first
the decennial of the Barony of the Northwoods (Lansing, Michigan).
My lord, Wolf
Dietrich von Hohenwald and I lived in the (then) Principality
of Drachenwald from 1981 to 1986. We reigned as Prince and Princess
Thus, I am the 6th Viscountess of Drachenwald. Here we are, during our Reign :
I was Seneschal of the Principality from 1983 to
accomplishment I hold most dear is the connection I helped to form with
developing Society branch in Sweden. It became the Shire of Nordmark,
to Barony and is now a Principality, since Drachenwald became a Kingdom.
In 1986, we came back to the mainland USA.
in the Kingdom of Caid from
1986 until June 2000 when we moved to the Kingdom
of An Tir.
I currently live in the Barony of Wyewood. It was a shire when we moved here and early in 2013 became a Barony! We have not been active, though.
I've held any number of positions since moving back to USA. From
1986 to December 1987, I was deputy to Mistress Hilary of Serendip,
when she was
Steward. I was Caid's Kingdom Seneschal twice: 1988-90 and
November 1993 to June 1994.
In The Barony of Gyldenholt, my local group in Caid, I was Guildmistress
Newcomers. I have also twice been Guildmistress for Scribes.
I was elevated to the Order of the Pelican in
November 1988 by
TRM's of Caid, Brian and Alysandra .
My persona is that of a noble Irishwoman of the late
My interests included calligraphy and illumination,
early music and SCA organization and management. My favorite manuscript
are Celtic and gothic. I have taught a number of classes for Collegium
With Viscount Wolf, our household is Haus Hohenwald. We have not been particularly active in An Tir, so we have not added to the haus since moving here. We are only four gentles, with two living in two other kingdoms.

Sadly, Maistreas Brid died 21 August 2016.

All the other albums were lost when my previous host blew up. I've not had the motivation to recreate them all, yet.
