Barunin Gera Gangolffin, OP, and her husband are currently the 13th coronets of Madrone. In a peerage context, she prefers the title "Meisterin", but being a landed coronet takes precedence over that.
Born 1485 (currently 1535), Augsburg, Bavaria
Married to Christopher MacEveny, mercenary Captain and Wild Goose from Ireland.
Gera gave birth to two sons. First son Faris of Madrone, a wandering minstrel, was lost to the falling sickness. Second son, Zachariah of Moore, was born in 1507, is a mercenary soldier, and new father.
Gera is literate and numerate, owns land and conducts business, and serves her family and community. She enjoys tailoring, pattern-making, embellishment, minor metalsmithing and jewelry, painting, and reading.
She sometimes pulls her great-great grandmother's clothes from the attic and dresses in the houppelandes and kirtles of a century ago. She's also occasionally been known to wear Ottoman clothing in the heat of the summer.
