The Barony of Gyldenholt is located in the mundane lands of Orange County, California and is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a non-profit medieval and renaissance reenactment organization. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Members attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.
Gyldenholt, founded by Duke Armand and Duchess Diana de Savigny in 1979, is one of thirteen baronies currently in existence within the Kingdom of Caid in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Our current Baron and Baroness are Their Excellencies Ilia and Vitasha.
We are located in the Kingdom of Caid in Southern California with the Barony of Angels to the north, Lyondemere to the west, Dreiburgen to the northeast, Califia to the southeast, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. View a map of Caid and Southern California here.
We are pleased to say that the Barony is quite active, both on a Baronial and Kingdom level. We have many activities in various areas of Medieval and Renaissance studies. If you are new to the SCA and/or you would like more information about Gyldenholt and the SCA in general, please visit the Newcomers Page.
