The Kingdom of Ealdormere

The Kingdom of Ealdormere is the sixteenth kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). The Kingdom of Ealdormere, which claims almost all of the Province of Ontario, was the first completely Canadian Kingdom in the SCA, followed The Kingdom of Avacal (parts of western Canada).

Before becoming a Kingdom in A.S. XXXII (1998), Ealdormere was a Principality of the Kingdom of The Middle (which is the U.S. States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, part of Michigan, Illinois and a nip of Iowa, and some of Ontario). Royalty is chosen by means of a semi-annual Crown Tournament. Winners of the tournament become Prince and Princess for approximately six months and then become King and Queen for approximately six months.

As a kingdom, Ealdormere is known for having a strong bardic tradition, and an incredibly talented scribal and heraldic community. We also look very dashing in red.
