The Barony of Gyldenholt is located in the mundane lands of Orange County, California and is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a non-profit medieval and renaissance reenactment organization. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Members attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.

Gyldenholt, founded by Duke Armand and Duchess Diana de Savigny in 1979, is one of twelve baronies currently in existence within the Kingdom of Caid in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Our current Barons are Their Excellencies Giles Hill and Giuseppe Francesco da Borgia.

We are located in the Kingdom of Caid in Southern California with the Barony of Angels to the north, Lyondemere to the west, Dreiburgen to the northeast, Califia to the southeast, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. View a map of Caid and Southern California here.

We are pleased to say that the Barony is quite active, both on a Baronial and Kingdom level. We have many activities in various areas of Medieval and Renaissance studies. If you are new to the SCA and/or you would like more information about Gyldenholt and the SCA in general, please visit the Newcomers Page.

Thanks are also due those who gave up some of their free time to organize and winnow the Baronial Storage Unit (and to those who continue to review the old files we found there, some dating back to the late Seventies!).

Whether we see you at guild meetings, or council, or local events, or kingdom events, or simply as an occasional poke on Facebook; know that you are special to us. We are your Barons because you believe in and trust us to represent you. And for that, we are grateful. In service to the Kingdom and Crown of Caid; and to the ever azure and golden groves of the Barony; we remain

In Service,
