Kingdom of the West
Or, a crown dancetty of three voided within a laurel wreath vert.
There are three principalities:
- Principality of the Mists (Greater San Francisco/Monterey Bay areas CA)
- Principality of Cynagua (Northern Central Valley and Sierras CA, N.W. NV)
- Principality of Oertha (Alaska)
The SCA began in the Kingdom of the West, which was in its early years known as the "Kingdom of the Mists", and sometimes as the "Kingdom of the Mists and the Western Lands". The standard form of its name came to be "Kingdom of the West" to distinguish it from the second and third kingdoms, which are the East Kingdom and Middle Kingdom.
In the beginning, the SCA was the Berkeley SCA, and it was identical to its only local group, which came to be known as the Kingdom of the West. This group did not crown its first king until March 25, A.S. I, near the end of its first year. The winners of previous tournaments were not yet considered to be kings.
