A Crown Tournament is a peak level event in each Kingdom. At Spring Crown Tournament Drachwenwald´s keenest fighters were assembled at the muddy fields of Ittlingen (Knight´s Crossing) to find heirs for Drachenwald´s crown.
14 fighters, lords and ladies, left- and righthanded met in heavy armored fighting. Ad Flumen Caerulum sent Lord Flose Thordson and Saidra ad Iscula. Alienor de Salignac chose to consort Master Aelric of Battle to underline the friendship with the Shire of Meadowmarsh. They where accompanied by a huge number of companions, meanwhile known as “AFC Ultras” (best away fans ever!).
After endless struggles, glorious triumphs and sad losses, Sir Sven Gunnarsson won the honour of being Drachenwald´s next king.
Our thanks go to the marvellous event staff, who managed reservation, feast kitchen and of course the tournament organization. So many helping hands from different regions working together show the solidarity between the regions. May there be many more!

To be guest at an event is always a great honour. We appreciate the countless hours of preparation by the event crew, the endless time spent for preparing, cooking and cleaning by the kitchen staff and the many helping hands that make an event unforgettable. Therefore we wish to thank our noble hosts, their supporters and the trainers at Meadowmarsh Boot Camp 2023. It was a great weekend!
Thanks to an ambitous event crew and lovely guests from all corners of Draachenwald we could enjoy a wonderful event at our humble Shire of Ad Flumen Caerulum. The pittoresque site of the castle of Albrechtsberg was once more the stage for al lovely community. Arts and Science, Bows and Arrows, court and itchen and of course much heavy fighting scenarios made it an unforgettable meeting of friends of our great Society of Anachronism. Find here some pictures.
Thanks to our noble neighbours from the Shire of Meadowmarsh for organizing a fantastic event. Our delegation was delighted to take part in heavy and rapier fighting, archery and several arts&science workshops.
We very much appreciate your hospitality and hope to give something back at incoming Parasol War VI. See you there!
It´s hard to describe the joy of attending a fighter´s event after two years of Covid plague. The Bootcamp in our friendly neighbourhood Düdelsheim in the Shire of Meadowmarsh is a traditional event for heavy fighting&fencing. Thanks to our hosts it could be held even under strict safety measures. The fighting activities took place at the local playground under best spring weather conditions. The presence of not less than the King himself, joined by four knights guaranteed personal advice for every heavy fighter.
The greatest fun at Meadowmarsh Boot Camp of course was the opportunity for small melees, where our Shire could once again proof the superior shield wall tactics from Ad Flumen Caerulum. Again we appreciated the rare opportunity to meet such an amount of courageous heavy fighters.
Thanks to our lovely hosts, including a tremendous kitchen crew and our personal event steward driver to the train station. We hope to pay it back at Parasol War in September. So register here now!
On the first weekend of Janurary 2022 we were honourd with a special guest.

We connot thank him enough for sharing his knowledge for improvind our fighting skills an hope to meet him again in March at Meadowmarsh Boot Camp in Düdelsheim.
Whilst the new Covid-19 Lockdown preventy heavy Fighting, we take a look in our heavy fighters archive. We detected a lot of reenacted quotes, taken from Shakespeare´s greatest plays. So enjoy our “Heavy Shakespeare Reenactment Gallery” (to be continued).
During the boredom of corona lockdown we had plenty of time to study masterpieces of famous old Dutch painters from the 16th century as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Breughel (the Elder). Their works inspired us to reeenact some Details taken out of their pictures. They were taken long before we learnt about similar actions like #gettymuseumchallange and others. By the way: some of those paintings are in Austrian museums… #scaartschallange. Since they were published on our social media channels we like to store them here to not be forgotten.
UPDATE: we are very proud, that the Austrian federal broadcasting company ORF awarded one of our pictures in their artschallange #dubistkunst.
