About our Baroness and Baron

The Baronesses and Barons (collectively – Baronage) represent the Crown within the Barony, and represent the Barony in other parts of the Kingdom and Known World. They may issue awards according to Baronial and Kingdom custom, hold court, and attend to other matters in their Baronies as directed by the Crown.

Our Baroness and Baron are often the most recognisable members of the Barony. In many ways they set the tone for the Barony, acting as leaders for its activities and overall direction. A Baronage will often hold the position for upwards of 3 years, but as you can see in the list below our previous Baronesses and Barons have held the position for 5 or 10 years in some cases.

When talking to, or about, the Baroness or Baron you should refer to them as ‘Your Excellency’, ‘His Excellency’, ‘Her Excellency’ or ‘Their Excellencies’.

The activity you are most likely to see them perform is giving out the Baronial Awards during a court. If you think someone in the Barony is deserving of an award, then you can recommend them for an award directly to Their Excellencies.
