RhieinwylyddRhieinwylydd started in the SCA in the College of Nordleigh in what was then the Territorial Principality of Northshield back in A.S. XXXI (1996). From there she traveled to the Province of Tree-Girt-Sea in the Midrealm (where she met and married Maistre Galeran Chanterel), the Barony of Windmasters’ Hill in Atlantia, and at last to Coeur du Val in An Tir, where she settled in A.S. XLIV. She really hopes not to move again.

She pronounces her name more or less as follows:

  • ‘rhee-ANE-oolith’, where ‘oolith’ is one syllable (you sort of slur over the ‘oo’) and the ‘th’ is hard as in ‘then,’ not soft as in ‘thistle;’
  • ‘verkh;’
  • ‘AYN-yon;’
  • ‘lahn-ELL-hehrn.’

You are highly encouraged to just call her ‘Rhi.’

Argent, three lion's heads cabossed sableHer arms are Argent, three lion’s heads cabossed sable.

Her persona is 13th century Welsh. Her interests are eclectic and varied, and include but are not limited to heraldry, period cooking, needlework, music and building a better administrative mousetrap. Rhieinwylydd likes meeting new people and hopes you will come introduce yourself at events!
