History

The Barony of Wealdsmere began as a shire of the Kingdom of the West in the Principality of An Tir in 1978. We seceded from the Kingdom of the West along with the rest of An Tir when it became a Kingdom in its own right in September of 1980. Wealdsmere continued to grow, and in July 1995, we became a Barony at the July coronation of Hwolf Einarsson and Luise die Daverhaft von dem Dammerungstal. It was an event known throughout An Tir as July Toronation because a tornado actually touched ground near the event site!
