Mundanely my name is Natalie Degerstrom. My first SCA event was Endewearde's Bare Blade Tavern in 2004. I find inter-kingdom culture and anthropology exceptionally interesting especially when looked at through the peerage lens.


Saruca was born into a Roma family in the Sulukule settlement of Istanbul in 1554.
