A '''Kingdom''' is a geographical region ruled by a [[King]] and/or a [[Queen]].
A kingdom in the [[society]] is a sovereign entity which is entitled to select a [[King]] and [[Queen]] by means of a [[Crown Tournament]]. To form a kingdom, the following requirements must be fulfilled:
 
  +
* At least 400 subscribed [[SCA membership|members]]
 
  +
==Kingdoms in the SCA==
* Candidates for all [[officer]] positions
 
  +
The [[Known World]] in the [[SCA]] is divided into '''kingdoms''', each of which has their own subset of [[laws]] and [[custom]]s. Every SCA [[branch]] lies within a specific kingdom. Kingdoms can cross [[mundane]] state, provincial and national borders.
* Have a registered name and [[device]]
 
  +
* Consensus from the members of the proposed kingdom in favour of the advancement
 
 
The [[West]] was established as the first SCA kingdom in [[1966]] (though it does not seem to have been clearly identified as a kingdom until early in [[1967]]). The date of the first [[event]] ([[May Day|1st May]], 1966) is reckoned to be the date the SCA started, and the term ''[[Anno Societatis]]'' was [[SCAism|coined]] to create a SCA-specific [[calendar]]. For instance, March [[2004]] was in [[A.S. XXXVIII]], and 1st May 2004 was the start of [[A.S. XXXIX]].
* A record of well attended [[events]], study/[[guild]] meetings, demonstations and other educational activities for the benefit of members and the rest of the community
 
* Sufficient members of the orders conferring to the [[Patent of Arms]], so there are enough people to advise [[Crown]] regarding admission of candidates to these [[Order]]s
 
* Sufficient number of [[fighters]] of such calibre to invest the competition for the Crown with dignity and value for its merits (so basically enough good fighters who can become [[King]] or [[Queen]], and make good role models)
 
* Have a newsletter and publication
 
* Have established all the mundane laws and encorporated SCA laws, and have all the boring paperwork official stuff ready.

A Kingdom is a geographical region ruled by a King and/or a Queen.

Kingdoms in the SCA

The Known World in the SCA is divided into kingdoms, each of which has their own subset of laws and customs. Every SCA branch lies within a specific kingdom. Kingdoms can cross mundane state, provincial and national borders.

The West was established as the first SCA kingdom in 1966 (though it does not seem to have been clearly identified as a kingdom until early in 1967). The date of the first event (1st May, 1966) is reckoned to be the date the SCA started, and the term Anno Societatis was coined to create a SCA-specific calendar. For instance, March 2004 was in A.S. XXXVIII, and 1st May 2004 was the start of A.S. XXXIX.
