SCA Peers

A peer in the SCA is a person who has received a Patent of Arms. There are three polling peerage orders: Order of the Laurel, Order of Chivalry or Order of the Pelican - aka Laurels, Knights, and Pelicans.

A "triple peer" is a person who holds membership in all three of the above orders.

There are also Royal Peers, who receive their Patent of Arms in return for time spent on the throne. Royal Peers appear above other peers in the Order of Precedence.

These people are expected to be the role models in the SCA, upholding the values of chivalry and committing themselves to service to the realm.
