The College of Blessed Herman the Cripple is an SCA College in the Barony of Innilgard in the Kingdom of Lochac. It is based at the University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia. As the first College and one of the first groups established in Lochac, it has a very old and rich history. It was the first college in Lochac to be founded [1], though this claim is disputed by the College of St Ursula.

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.


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.
