The ancient Barony of Seleone and her sister-Barony of Axemoor guard the gulf coast of the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann, and the mouth of the Great River. The people of Seleone are known for their good humor, hospitality, hard work and determination. They are recognized for their honor and courtesy in a Kingdom where Honor and Courtesy are valued above all.
The Barony of Seleone is now led by Baron Aleyn Kynyd ap Rhys and Baroness Ellyn Heath of Hemingford Grey, who represent the King and Queen of Gleann Abhann. They act as their eyes and ears, and receives their authority as an extension of their Sovereign Rule.
The Barony of Seleone is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. We are bringing together people on the Mississippi Gulf Coast who are interested in researching and re-creating the arts and skills of the medieval era. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms including Gleann Abhann, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our "royalty" hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group.
If you are interested in the middle ages, we encourage you to come to a class or meeting that interests you. Check our Events and Activities page for current get-togethers. SCA events can range from a few people getting together on weeknights to practice music on medieval instruments to thousands of people gathered together for a week to wage a multi-kingdom war. Membership in the SCA is not required to attend an event, although for some events you must attempt to wear some version of a medieval costume. We have special members of the barony called chatelaines who will help new people get involved, and find suitable costuming.
A listing of some of the people and households of the Barony can be found in the "dramatis personae" section. You can also find pictures and examples of heraldry there. Our online resources include stories and SCA anecdotes, songs, recipes and informative articles.
Our Barony is supported by many fine volunteers. Everything that goes into creating an SCA event happens because of volunteers. Our baronial Officers lend their time and talents to create a structure within which the SCA can operate. Contact information for our Officers and any officer-related web information can be reached through the Regnum section of our contacts page.
In an effort to promote interest in the middle ages, the Barony of Seleone can hold a demonstration of medieval life for your orginization, school, or event. This event can include dancing and cooking, cooking, arts and crafts, lectures and the excitement of armored combat, presented in costume from the viewpoint of medieval personas. Please complete the form on the contacts page to contact us and arrange a demo.
