It must be noted that no one who has husband and family does any event on their own – I must give HUGE thanks to my Lord, Ulric Fredricson, My son. Lord Aelfgar, and especially my daughter Lady Mogg, who should claim co autocrat to almost all my events.
I must acknowledge Mistress Roweena’s tutelage! She made me Co autocrat a lot of things, and she did make me work! It is a style of teaching that I have continued to use to this day!

Member, Tir Righ Principality Committee – in its very early days. I started in the Committee for Cascadia. (April ’91) I mailed out the very first questioning letter about a principality to all the Groups. The replies were amazing! Most were phoned rather than ‘risk’ putting their opinions on paper.
Scribal artist contributing charters to the Principality
Scribal artist contributing to both of the Doomsday books
Boffer marchal and organizer of Official Boffer activities

if I had a nickel for all the prizes I have donated!  I have no idea how many or when.


Her Ladyship is a person of great influence on Insula Magna and the careful observer will find her influence in the beginning of many a worthy project.
