Mordenvale History

The Shire of Mordenvale was initially formed in May 1984 with Wulfwine Grimwald as the first Seneschal.

With fire in their hearts & wind in their sails, Mordenvale was elevated to Barony status in July 2003, becoming Lochac’s eleventh Barony. The chosen inaugural Baron and Baroness were Ragnar Magnússon and Lucrezia de Milano.

Mordenvale was traditionally a fighting Barony with an emphasis on combat and archery. In recent years arts & sciences have found a strong foothold within the Barony.

No spear nor sword could break our wall.
No soldiers ears would heed deaths call.
No Mordenvale’s sons borne home.
No mothers tears to mourn their own.

There are tales of formidable shield walls, impenetrable, backed by fierce commanders & true-hearted soldiers known as

The Grogs

Although they have succumbed to antiquity, they hold a dear place in our memories.
