Baron & Baroness

As a Barony of An Tir, Wealdsmere is connected to the Crown of An Tir through the Baron and Baroness. This couple serves as the representative of the Crown to the populace, and the representative of the populace to the Crown. The duties of a Baron and Baroness have to do primarily with the “fun” side of branch affairs; holding Court, giving of awards and judging competitions. Their job is to make the magic come alive for everyone, they set the tone for pageantry and the medieval atmosphere. They represent the Barony in all things medieval.

The Baron and Baroness are the resident patrons of the Arts and Sciences within their branch and work to foster and encourage all of their peoples endeavours.

They are the voice of the Crown in their lands, and are responsible to report on the health and well-being of their Barony at all Crown events. Likewise, it is their responsibility to convey news and Crown wishes back to their local group.

Responsibility for management of the group lies with the Seneschal and other officers, and when necessary they will carry the concerns of the populace to the Baron and Baroness who will apprise the Crown for consideration and resolution as necessary.

The Baroness organizes and maintains the Sergeantry, who are sworn to her, so that chivalry and the gentler arts may always be encouraged.
