HISTORY OF THE BARONY

Blazon: Gules, a standing seraph affronty proper, winged Or, haloed of a laurel wreath proper.

Baronial Colors: Gules (red) and Or (gold).

The Barony of Angels has a long and memorable history within the SCA. Angels is proud to be the "A" in Caid, and as such was one of four original baronies of Caid, along with Calafia, Isles, and Dreiburgen, from which the Kingdom name was derived. Established on September 6, 1970, it initially encompassed the greater Los Angeles Basin (including the South Bay and Long Beach), Orange County, Ventura County, Santa Barbara, and San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. Over the years, the Barony gave birth to the Baronies of Lyondemere, Dun Or, Gyldenholt and Altavia. The current territory includes the original lands minus those areas formed out of the original holding.
