Dzien Dobry,

I am Pan Krzyslaw "Kythe" Szubielka (pronounciation: Kur zi slav / Ky TH / Shoe bell ka)


Kythe originates from the court of Konrad I of Masovian in 1220 Poland in the middle of the Piast Fragmentation. He was wandering through the merchant stalls of Krakow when he came upon a round fruit as bright as a brass coin. The merchant selling them was from Scotland and showed him how to eat the delicious fruit. Kythe was so enamored that he decided it was worth seeing the world and going to Scotland to find more of these oranges. On his travels he met Mistress Morwynna Cryw and her Laird. They introduced him to Lady Seigine Ruadh Friseal whom became his wife. On returning to Conrad's Court, the Teutonic Order was attempting to take over the region. The Teutonic Order has just been invited by the Duke to protect and fight the heathen Prussians on the Eastern Border. Instead they donated the land they were using to Pope Clementine who then gave it back to the order and summarily stole the property from the Duke. Kythe and Sine fled and settled in the Barony of Stonemarche in the East Kingdom where they still currently reside.

Kythe runs a small business known as the Inn of Bard's Rest.

Inn of Bard's Rest

Kythe has a traveling bar known as the Inn of Bard's Rest. The purpose of the bar is to offer period beverages at events and have new brewers offer their creations for constructive criticism and encourage them to brew for competitions and panelings. For more info on the bar go to: Facebook Group

In case of Court

In the event of another Peerage or a Court Baroncy, I am happy to accept a Writ. Always contact Seigine Ruadh Friseal, Inn of Bards Rest and Suzanne Neuber de Londres. Kythe is a big fan of M.C. Escher (both his paradoxical and traditional artwork) if you are looking for artwork to incorporate into scrolls. Hops, Grain, Barley and Mosaic tiles are also cool. If possible, would like scroll from Collette d’Avignon if available to do so.
