Diego de Oviedo
Baron Diego de Oviedo
Diego joined the SCA for the first time in the early 80's. That was when the Kingdom of Drachenwald was just a principality. He's been in the Barony of Ponte Alto and Atlantia for nigh on 15 years. He has been a heavy weapons and fencing fighter over that time, of no repute but of great fun and camaraderie. In 2018, he took good counsel of the years and began to shift to more administrative functions in the barony and kingdom.
Today Diego is passionately interested in making the SCA a better place to play, learn, research and create. Not having much talent of his own, he hopes to facilitate others in their quest in this current middle-age.
Diego Diaz de Oviedo is the fourth son of Diego Alonso Ramirez, a prosperous merchant in 16th century Spain, region of Asturias. Upon the death of his father, Diego Diaz inherited a small interest in the merchant shipping firm left by his father to his six sons. With the lions share of company control going to Alvaro, the first child, Diego was forced to seek other means of employment and adventure.
As a constable of the city guard, life was boisterous and exciting in Oviedo but it lacked the access to the sea and the rest of the world. Returning to Gijon, where Diego's father had previously established his small fleet, he took a captaincy from his brother and plied the family trade up and down the Iberian coast. From port to port, this was the excitement Diego craved and what led to his greater wealth, experience and not a little love for most things Moorish.
