I am Viscountess Violet Tailyeaour, originally from the Perthshire port area of Scotland in the 12th Century AD.
My lord, Viscount Duncan ap Llywellyn, and I reside in the Barony of Eldern Hills in the Kingdom of Ansteorra the along with our son, Tristan Duncanson. We are proud members of the household of Bloody Ridge.
My adventures in the Society for Creative Anachronism began in August 2004 in the Barony of Calafia in the Kingdom of Caid. This is where I fell in love with both the Society and my now husband. Then onward to the Barony of Dragonsspine, Kingdom of the Outlands in the Spring of 2006, the Shire of Forth Castle, Kingdom of Meridies in Spring of 2009, the Barony of Winter’s Gate, Principality of Oertha, in the Kingdom of the West in Spring of 2015, and now onto the Barony of Eldern Hills, in the Kingdom of Ansteorra in the Summer of 2018.
Our Society was started for fun and friendship, I think it is important to never forget those two core ideals. I started and maintain (with help now) the Facebook Group of Military SCAdians, which is now over 500 members strong. I love fostering newcomers into the society and regularly host sewing and project nights at my home. I enjoy costuming, and I am experimenting with lampworking, illumination, block-printing, herbals, and whatever else happens to tickle my fancy.
