Shire of Okeborne Keep
The Shire of Okeborne Keep occupies territory previously held by the defunct Shire of Misty Mere.
History of Misty Mere
The Shire of Misty Mere was founded by a group of University of Alabama students who first met in late 1979. It was recognized as an SCA branch in 1980. There were some 20 people at the first organizational meeting, only two of whom had any previous contact with the SCA - Lord Jean Pierre de Etonoir and Lady Melianne d'Avignon, both of whom had newly moved to Meridies from Ansteorra.
