Founded in February, A.S. XVIII, Calontir is the tenth oldest Kingdom in the Known World. It was formerly a Principality of Midrealm. Geographically it consists of Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Northwestern Arkansas.
Calontir has in the past gained some notoriety for being the only Kingdom in the SCA that did not allow rapier combat. At their Coronation, in A.S 48, Their Majesties Damien and Isabel officially regonized the Calontir Steel program for Cut and Thrust and Heavy Rapier.
Calontir holds the Lilies War in June (begins the 2nd full weekend) every year.
Calontir began as a Principality within the Middle Kingdom in 1981-2 (A.S. XVI) and on May 29, 1984 (A.S. XVIII) became the tenth Kingdom of the SCA. The first King and Queen of Calontir were known as Chepe l'Orageux and Arwyn Antaradi.
