(Marg Henley)


Mistress Margie of Glen More was elevated at Rowany Festival AS XXXVI by Their Majesties Uther and Portia, King and Queen of the West.

Mistress Margie Marshalling at November Coronet, Stormhold, AS XXXVI

I joined the SCA for a little light relief from my busy life. I was a single mum in my early 30's with four small children, and teaching Drama/Theatre Studies part time. My aim was just to be a 'fly on the wall' - didn't work though. Either in Arts and Sciences, or in service. Within a year of playing I was taking on officers' positions in Stormhold. First as Captain of Archers then as Group Marshal. I was one of the founding members of the Shire of Arrowsreach. I entered an A&S comp in Stormhold that was a disaster - told knitting wasn't period! and was pretty disheartened till I entered a poetry comp at Principality level in Riverhaven. From then on I was a competition junkie - thanks for the encouragement folks! Knitting was the next comp and it all took off from there - you could say I became obsessive ;-) I was asked to join the Order of the Laurel just after Festival in ASXXXIV. I have been a keen combat archer, thanks to House Saarlands who took me under their wing early in my SCA career. I have been enjoying my role in the Marshallate for many years and hope to do so for a long time still to come! I took on the responsibility of preparing the first Kingdom of Lochac Combat handbook which I did with the assistance of many of the populace, but in particular Lord William Cumyn whose help was invaluable all the way through the process and in the final formating of the booklet. I have a keen interest in the entertainment arts and have just promised Steaven de Glaubigen to try to assist those interested in period theatre.
