The Barony of Marinus


Peers of Marinus

   Sir Otto von Schwartzkatz

Knight, Order of the Chivalry and Court Baron


Sir Otto is the Earl Knight Marshal for the Kingdom of Atlantia, which means he makes sure all the other Knight Marshals throughout the kingdom are correctly following their duties.

As a member of the Chivalry, he devotes his time and service to training fighters to be great warriors who will one day become Knights, developing battle strategies during wars, marshalling tournaments, and, when the mood strikes him, he still dons his armor to fight on the battle field!


Dame Hróðný Rognvaldsdóttir 


Mistress of the Pelican

Mistress of the Laurel

Court Baroness


Dame Hróðný (pronounced Hh-roth-nee) has been in the SCA for many years, was one of the first Baronesses of the Barony of Marinus, and delights in watching her beloved barony grow and prosper.

She cooks, sews, embroiders, specializes in Viking culture and garb, plays medieval card games, and knits. She has also been a "Camp Mom" at overnight events, is on the Pennsic Staff, and devotes her time to preserving "The Dream" of the SCA.

Dame Hróðný also enjoys penguins of all kinds and collects Legos! She is also the loving wife of Master Arnbiørn Bassi Dansson.

   
  Mistress Margrét Eyverska


Mistress of the Laurel

Court Baroness


Mistress Margret is the gentle wife of Baron Otto von Schwartzkatz who enjoys working with her hands and was also a former Baroness of Marinus. 

Whether it's embroidery, sewing, knitting, veil-making, cooking, being a "Camp Mom", Mistress Margret likes to do a bit of everything. You will often find her seated comfortably in the corner of a tent working on her next project.

 


 


Master Arnbiørn Bassi Dansson 


Master of the Pelican

Court Baron


Master Arnbiørn Bassi Dansson may have the gruff exterior of a bear but he has a soft heart inside and truly loves the SCA.

He has been a heavy fighter, a fencer, was a former Baron of Marinus, has held many baronial offices, is on the Pennsic Staff, and a woodworker. He has Marshals in both Armored Combat and Rapier Combat, and like his wife Dame Hróðný, he devotes his services and time to preserving "The Dream" of the SCA.



       Master Donal Mac Ruiseart


               Master of the Pelican
                       Court Baron


Master Donal was the very first Baron of Marinus and is a herald through and through. He enjoys lifting his voice for all to hear, is a renowned heavy fighter and Marshal, an educated man-about-town, well versed in the customs of chivalry and manners, eager to lend a hand, and a great story teller. 

You will often find him on the field of battle and when he is not striking terror into the hearts of Atlantia's foes, Master Donal can be seen doting on his dear wife Baroness Catherine de Bellefleur.

Sir William of Bellwood 


Knight, Order of the Chivalry

Court Baron 


Sir William has been in many kingdoms and seen the SCA grow from a few friends to a large organization.

He was a former Baron of Marinus, is the current Exchequer for the Barony, a respected Knight, enjoys teaching his battle tactics, Marshalling Heavy Armored Combat, has done metal and wood working, and enjoys cooking alongside his wife Lady Sarah Elizabeth in the kitchen at events. 


Sir Aldrydd Ffestiniog  


   Knight, Order of the Chivalry


Landed Baron, Deceased.


Baron Aldrydd (often called "Arath") was a shining example of what a Knight should be: courteous, courageous, fierce in battle, merciful and honorable to his foes, a tyrant to his squires, kind to his subjects, beloved by his peers, and good humored.

His Excellency enjoyed teaching his fighting skills, smiting Atlantia's foes, playing with his son, and being near his lovely wife, Baroness Isabel d'Avignon.

He passed away on February 20, 2017 and this entry remains as a reminder of our beloved Marinusian Knight.
