Information
Founded: A.S. XXXVII
Parent Kingdom: (Australian branches Kingdom of the West) (New Zealand branches Kingdom of Caid)
King: Theuderic II
Queen: Engelin II
Modern location
Australia and New Zealand

The Kingdom of Lochac comprises all SCA groups in Australia and New Zealand.

When the SCA groups in a region fulfill certain criteria (as specified by Corpora), they can become a kingdom, provided sufficient members wish to do so. This occurred in Australia in July 2002. The New Zealand groups joined the new kingdom at the Lochac May Crown, 2003.

The Australian groups were previously the Principality of Lochac, part of the Kingdom of the West. The New Zealand groups were formerly part of the Kingdom of Caid.

The name Lochac comes from the writings of Marco Polo, where he catalogs the lands to the south. Lochac is described as a land south of Java with a sovereign king. Late sixteenth century maps can be found with Luchac, Beach and Maletur forming part of a large mainland area in the position of Western Australia.
