Alienor joined the Society in A.S. XXXV in the Barony of the Jararvellir (Madison, WI) in Northshield when it was still a Middle Kingdom Principality. She moved to the East and the Shire of Panther Vale in A.S. XLVI. She has several awards for the arts in Northshield including a Grant of Arms that came with her entrance to the Order of Brigits Flame. In addition to the performing arts, she focuses on poetry. She dabbles in many projects. She enjoys embroidery, and beading and recently added baking to those interests. She delights in delving into research of any type. Personal interests include the history of marginalized people, Book curses, and the Robin Hood legends. She has a wide breadth of interest in history and likely has a new fixation of the moment.


Alienor Hathaway in from Barnsdale, Yorkshire. Her mother is French. Her father was a spice merchant that traveled frequently when she was a child. Her father eventually rose to his position at court due to an outbreak of the sweating illness that took the senior line of the family. Alienor benefited from an enlighten circle and education provided to highborn ladies of her time. She especially loved music and the humanities. Alienor also often portrays her own ancestor and dresses in 12th-century attire.


Alienor belongs to Sodales Ultionis as an apprentice to Magister Tiberius Iulius Rufus Primus.

Preferred titles and pronouns

Alienor uses standard English feminine pronouns (she/her/hers).

In Case of Court

Alienor loves ceremonial occasions. For in-person court, she has no preference between surprises or summons. Artisans using their creativity in whatever scroll they choose is humbling and amazing. She would love to have historical inspiration made available to her. If the opportunity arises, she would appreciate a scroll by her apprentice sister Aurelia Colleoni a'Buccafurno. In case of an award, she would appreciate informing her Laurel, Master Tiberius Iulius Rufus and her husband, THL Edward Talbot.
