Barony of Windmasters' Hill

The Barony of Windmasters Hill is the oldest Barony in the Kingdom of Atlantia. Windmasters’ Hill and her cantons include the lands of central North Carolina, including the Greater Triangle Area and Fayetteville.

Windmasters' Hill holds their baronial event, Ymir, each February as well as numerous canton events throughout the year.


April 20, 1975 saw the first "Gathering of Windmasters" which led to the formation of a Shire that May.

The first Ymir, which would become the barony's premier event, was held the following year in February 1976. Ymir has been held every year since and is used for baronial investiture, selection of champions, and acts as a reflection of Windmasters' culture. Later that year the cantons of Elvegast and Buckston-On-Eno were formed. At the second Ymir, in 1977, Windmasters' Hill was recognized as a barony and its first baron was invested.

In May of 1978, two additional cantons were formed. Atillium, which remains to this day an active canton of Windmasters' Hill, and The Guardians of The Sacred Stone.

Windmasters' Hill held the first Atlantian Crown Tournament in November of 1980, it was hosted by the canton of Buckston-On-Eno. This same year, Kappellenberg petitioned to be recognized as an official canton.

In 1981 The Guardians Of the Sacred Stone petitioned to start their own shire, separating from Windmasters' Hill and eventually forming the Barony of Sacred Stone.

In April of 2002, the barony's youngest canton, Nimenefeld was recognized.

The premier award of the Vexillum Atlantiae was given to the fighters of Windmasters' Hill on August 10 2007, an honor which they would claim again at Pennsic 47 in 2018.
