Greetings! Degemer mat, deoc'h!

I am called Aotroù (Lord) Conogan mab Rioc, the Breton. I started in the SCA at the end of 1998 when I was working in Ynys y Gwaed. I currently live in the Shire of Lyndhaven, in the Crown Principality of Tir Mara. I was the first Heavy List Champion of the Princess of Tir Mara in 2009. I make my living as a warrior bard, fighting for my silver and singing for my supper.


I was born in the village of Landreger on the northern coast of Brittany, just after the vernal equinox of the year 1048. As the second son of Rioc mab Madoc mab Brudoc, I had to find my own way in the world. In 1066, due to feudal obligations, I joined the force to re-conquer Britain from the Saxons. After our success at Hastings, I was part of the group of nobles who were assigned to the Welsh Marches, because the Breton language is close enough to Welsh that we can speak with and understand the locals.

When my feudal obligations were over, I left Wales and headed back to my homeland with the Irish bride I had won with my warm heart and words of love.
