|Barony of Storvik|
The Barony of Storvik is a Barony in the Kingdom of Atlantia. Mundanely, Storvik comprises the District of Columbia; Prince George's County, Maryland; and a small portion of Montgomery County, Maryland.
Among the Baronies of Atlantia, Storvik ranks third in order of precedence, based on the date of its first baronial investiture (September 15, 1979, AS 14). For several years before that date, however, Storvik, serving the greater metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., was known as a "charter barony" that did not quite fit the SCA rules that prohibited branch boundaries from crossing state lines. Storvik is sometimes called the "Mother of Baronies" because of the number of other SCA branches created from its former lands.
Storvik's signature event is its Novice and Unbelt Tourney, held in late spring or early summer. Storvik and the Barony of Lochmere take turns hosting Battle on the Bay in September.
Storvik is one of five Baronies that were created as Baronies of the East Kingdom before the founding of the Kingdom of Atlantia on May 2, 1981 (AS 16). Storvik's founding Territorial Baroness was Duchess Ysabeau Cameron, OP, who reigned as Queen of the East in AS X and AS XI and subsequently served as Territorial Princess of the Principality of Atlantia in AS 12.
The arms of Storvik, as registered with the SCA College of Arms in January 1980, are blazoned as follows: "Azure, on a pale wavy argent in chief a laurel wreath vert, overall a drakkar proper sailed argent, the sail charged with three pallets gules."
The Storvik populace badge, as registered in January 1994, are blazoned as follows: "Paly argent and gules, a drakkar prow sable."
