Catherine, Senyora de Sant Marti, attended the 1992 Egil Skallagrimson Memorial Tournament in An Tir as her first event. She returned to the SCA in the East in 2003 to explore a little more in depth, going to local fencing practices and to War of the Roses. Since then, Catherine has been a fencer and marshal; chronicler, court herald, poet, and scroll wordsmith; event steward and class coordinator; and deputy to many. Currently, she is serving as East Kingdom Chronicler.

In her former Lowland Scots persona, she was known as Katrine Lyndesay and, after a name conflict, as Katryne Blak.


Catherine de Sant Marti is late 14th-century Catalan and resides near Tarragona. (The clothing shown in the photo at right was put together for the initial late 15th-century Castilian version.)

Her given name, like the more common spelling of Catherina, is properly pronounced with a schwa on the end ("nuh").

Her device is from her mother's side, from Navarra. It is close to armory in the Libro de Armeria del Reino de Navarra. Her father and his family come from Sant Marti, in the vicinity of Vic, northwest of Barcelona.
