(Tina Bean)


Elevated at Rowany Festival 7th of April AS 46 (2012) By King Siridean and Queen Margie

Current Kingdom Seneschal of Lochac, in the past my roles have included Deputy Kingdom Seneschal, Provost of Scribes for Lochac and Secretary of the SCA Ltd Board. I have also co-stewarded two Rowany Festivals one in 2002 and the latest one in 2014.

Elevated to the Order of the Laurel on the 31st of March 2001 for my work in Medieval Medical Astrology, Medieval Medicine and early Anglo Saxon garb. My focus has been less on medicine over the last ten years and more on calligraphy and illumination and fibre arts including spinning and weaving. My main focus throughout my terms as a Laurel has been to research the daily life of those who lived in the middle ages, this includes all of my past and present interests.

Reigned as Princess with Sir Bran of Lochiel in 1994 when Lochac was part of the Principality of the West.
