The following are current and/or former residents of the Principality of Oertha
in Order of Precedence. It is the intention of the web-author to include all
coats of arms of all the populace of Oertha. This includes persons residing
or ever having resided in Oertha, and persons having received awards
from the Coronets of Oertha.

This is, of course a work in progress and ever changing.

NOTE: While care is taken to keep this site up-to-date,
the only official source of awards for Oertha and the West Kingdom
is the West Kingdom Awards Page

You can choose to follow a specific Royal Reign, past or present, on this page:
West Kingdom Awards by Reign

These emblazons are intended for recognition purposes only,
and may not be of quality to reproduce on paper or for projects.
Please contact the owner of the armory for their best artwork.

If some emblazons do not appear, refresh/reload the page once.

Armory will have names above, and blazons and award history beneath.
For foreign language equivalents of SCA titles
(Lord/Lady, Master/Mistress, Sir/Dame, Count/Earl/Countess, etc)
visit the SCA Alternate Titles page.

If you know any of these folks who have moved to other Kingdoms
and/or received further
awards, or armigers who have moved to Oertha, please let me know.

Some names carry links to sites related to that individual (in blue).
