Baronial Officers


Mistress Asta Olafsdottir

What is a seneschal? In medieval times, the Seneschal was the steward of a Great House. Seneschals also performed duties similar to a governor or other administrative or judicial officer.

In the SCA, a Seneschal is like the city manager to the Baron and Baroness, who are similar to a city mayor. The Seneschal helps facilitate the legal aspects of running events, membership, and the general business of the barony.



Bjarg-njotr Olfassa 

The office of the exchequer is responsible for all financial activities in the barony. All fund requests, event budgets, deposits, donations, and so on go through the exchequer. The office also reports non-member event attendance. It is one of the most challenging positions in the barony, and also one of the most fulfilling. The office is more of a background office, focused on the bookkeeping rather than meeting everyone in the populace, but it also gives some of the best insight into how the barony operates.

Knight Marshal

Agmundr Thorolfsson 

The office of the Baronial Marshal (armored combat) is responsible for managing martial activities for the barony.  In Caer Galen, this means maintaining the loaner gear, making sure we have a site for fighter practices, and helping new fighters learn the basics of heavy combat.  If you’re interested in finding out more about heavy fighting, please come out to our Tuesday practice. You can find the location on the events page.

The Marshal of Fence attends regular Baronial rapier practice and has a few duties. The marshal is especially responsible to new fighters.
