The Barony of Stormhold is a SCA branch in the Kingdom of Lochac. It covers central, western and northern Melbourne, Australia plus Western Victoria, being the oldest group in the state. The Barony has two Cantons . The Canton of Dubh Thrian covers the northern suburbs while the Canton of Caern Fail covers Ballarat, Bendigo, the Golden Triangle and the Surf Coast. The College of St Bartholomew is based at the University of Melbourne. The Shire of Arrowsreach and the Shire of Krae Glas were formerly cantons of the barony.


The first Baron and Baroness of Stormhold were Styvyn Longshanks and Rhyllian of Starfire Retreat. Their reign was interrupted when Styvyn and Rhyllian won the Lochac Coronet tournament, and became Prince and Princess of Lochac in A.S. XXIV.

Barons and Baronesses of Stormhold:

Viscount Styvren Longshanks (KSCA, resigned) and Viscountess Rhyllian of Starfire Retreat, OP Vicar - Morgan ap Idris Alain Bartholomieu Lorenz, OP and Viscountess Lucrezia Lorenz Sven Stormdriven, OP and Ingibjorg Ambadottir Rudolf von der Drau and Nicolette Dufay, OP Gwynfor Lwyd, OP and Gwir verch Madog Hugh the Little, KSCA and Theresa Cummins Vicar - Mirriam Galbraith, OL

An interesting note is that of all the Barons and Baronesses, only Gwynfor and Theresa are native Melburnians. Styvren was born in New Zealand, Rhyllian is a native of Mildura, Alain was raised near Sheparton, Sven and Lucrezia were from Adelaide, Ingibjorg was from Canberra, as was Hugh, and Rudolf, Nicolette and Gwir are all American. From an SCA stanpoint, Styvren, Alain, Gwynfor and Theresa started in the SCA in Stormhold, Rhyllian in the Shire of Quimera de Oro (Mildura, Victoria), Sven and Ingibjorg in the Shire/Barony of Innilgard (Adelaide, South Australia), Rudlof and Nicolette in the Barony of Ynys Fawr (Hobart, Tasmania), Gwir in the Barony of Settmour Swamp (New Jersey, USA) and Hugh in Politarchopolis (Canberra, ACT). Of the Vicars, Morgan started in Stormhold and Mirriam in Innilgard. Alain, Nicolette and Gwynfor served as Seneschal of Stormhold at various times, as did Morgan.

After the sudden departure of the sixth Baron and Baroness, Sir Hugh the Little & Baroness Therasa Commins, during Rownay Festival AS XXXIX, Miriam Galbraith was appointed as vicar. On June 24th, AS XXXXI Rodrigo and Sara will become the 7th Baron and Baroness Stormhold. Both are natives of Melbourne (I think), and both started their SCA careers here.

Annual Events

The most famous annual Stormhold event is the William Marshall tourney and feast, held in early December. Stormhold also holds an annual Winter Feast.
