Richard Ironsteed

Linda Scott / Duchess Lyn, wrote:

Count Richard Ironsteed, first King of Atenveldt, passed away on the morning of January 13, 2022. Besides being the first king, Count Richard was co-founder of the kingdom in partnership with Sir Michael of Moria. He discovered the SCA at Westercon in San Francisco in 1969 and brought it home to Arizona. After a few years of hard work and much love and laughter, Atenveldt was born. He dabbled in everything from heraldry to martial arts to building siege weapons and whatever else struck his fancy. He joins his wife, Her Excellency Leonore, who was surely waiting for him. Long live the king!
