Blessed Herman the Cripple was a mathematician, musician and monk. He was considered to be a genius, yet his parents gave him to the church as a child because he was so horribly crippled and was therefore no use for working in the fields.

The SCA College of Blessed Herman the Cripple (Adelaide University) is located in the Barony of Innilgard (Adelaide). It was the first college in Lochac to be founded, and one of the first groups established in Lochac, with a very old and rich history.

The first Queen of Lochac, Duchess Guðrun, is a former Scholar and Seneschal of the College, and during her second reign as Queen, gave Blessed Herman the right to refer to itself as "The Queen's College".

The college has played a large part in the Inter-College Wars, both as a host and regularly the victor. Often known as "the Friendly College", their mascot is Fred, the Fire Breathing Goat of Doom. Assisting Fred is Oscar the Ram.
