If you’re new to our group, and this captures your interest, we’d love to meet you! Additional information about our local chapter is available on the “Get Involved” page, or you can always email the Chatelaine, our designated officer for welcoming newcomers.
Back in 2018, the Crown Province assembled a bunch of materials documenting its fifty years of history as part of the East Kingdom’s anniversary event.
These items were displayed at the event, and have been brought out a couple of times since then, but we neglected to make them available more widely, and are now attempting to correct that oversight.
The most comprehensive document of the Province’s history is “The Annals of The Crown Province of Østgarðr,” a document originally prepared by Richard the Poor of Ely, who for many years was Østgarðr’s official Historian.
As part of the preparations for the East Kingdom Fifty Year event, I revised and extended that document, adding bits of history found in the public record or contributed by the populace.
The results were printed up as a hardback book, the contents of which you can view below.
If you have interesting stories from Østgarðr’s past to share with us, please let us know!

Thank you to Lady Lilie Dubh inghean uí Mórdha, Pantheon Herald, for contributing this peek behind the curtain at the functioning of the East Kingdom’s heraldic submissions office, led by the Blue Tyger Herald. — Ed.
Coffee in hand, I sit down at my desk and turn on my laptop. Sounds like a normal morning in the modern world? Partially, it is. Email first…
The Crown Province of Østgarðr is one of many baronies, shires, cantons, and other groups that play within the lands of the East Kingdom, and all submit heraldic items to the Blue Tyger Herald for review and registration. Generally, the East Kingdom has the most heraldic items in all the SCA in any given month or year, with Pennsic alone providing about half of the Kingdom’s yearly submissions.
