(Lady) Mergriet van Wijenhorst

  • Lived in the Barony of Ruantallan in the late 90's
  • The shire of Lyndhaven from about 2002 to 2009 (with a short stint in An Tir)
  • Within this time I received my AoA (2002), Maunche (2004) and Burdened Tyger (2008)
  • The Barony of Septentria (Ealdormere) from 2009-2010
  • The Shire of Bordergate (An Tir) from 2010 to 2013
  • Ruantallan, canton of Seashire, 2013

In the SCA I basically like to research stuff, cook and make things (like award scrolls), it's that simple. I also enjoy learning more about my persona and improving my in-game appearance

Apprenticed to Mistress Elizabeth Darnley at Herne the Hunter, A.S.48

Presently the (Tir Mara) Princess's Champion for Arts and Sciences


Mergriet is a native of Brabant who moved to Antwerp as a child. Her father was a skilled migrant worker who saw Antwerp as a place that would hold better fortunes. Mergriet (AKA Griet) has lived there ever since, though as tensions rise in the city, her husband is now looking at taking them either further north or over to England.

Her present place of residence is at the Eik en Zwijn

Offices & Positions

In the past I held onto long term positions of Webminister and Chronicler for Lyndhaven and was the Minister of Children for the Northern Shores area (now Tir Mara), I also filled in for many more temporary jobs and deputy positions within the shire of Lyndhaven and for the area now known as Avonmore.

Event Staff

During the years I lived in Lyndhaven, I both co-ran events as well as cooked feasts, shared kitchens and ran day-boards. The majority of these events took place in what is now known as the incipient shire of Avonmore, though I have also taken part in regional (now principality) and kingdom events.

First event I cooked for, on returning to the East Kingdom (I have cooked many here before this), was in Feb. 2014 "Dinner at Finchcocks Court", this was a test run for creating high persona events in the area. For me it was an opportunity to arrange a meal as would have been known to an English person of higher standing in the 1590's, well, at least to best of our knowledge. A few things went awry, but we worked out a lot of quirks, great experience over all! Hope to see more of these pop up in the future!

Projects & Publications

Too many to remember them all, though I do presently update various webpages/blogs. Some more SCA related ones are these:
