Baron & Baroness
The Baron & Baroness are the representatives of the Crown within the Barony. As such it is their duty to recognise the good works of their populace, and to encourage more of the same. While the Seneschal is the administrative head of the group, the Baron & Baroness aim to provide motivational leadership and direction to the group.
Currently in Rowany this is Baron Miles and Baroness Ameline.
The Chamberlain is there to assist the Baron & Baroness. Partly this is to ensure that the Baronage is suitably organised for events, but their role is also largely to ensure that the Guards and Companions are properly organised to assist. The Chamberlain can be a contact point for the Baronage, however this is not to imply that the Baronage does not want to hear from you directly.
Currently the Baronial Chamberlain is Lady Ilona
