Company of Saint Ulrich
Founded in 2005, the Company of St Ulrich is a heavy fighting household based out of Glymm Mere.
Origin of the name
The company is after the Catholic Saint Ulrich, Bishop and defender of of Augsburg, who successfully oversaw the protection of that city from a Magyar invasion in AD 955.
The group was conceived by Baron Godric Ap Rhys as a way to trick his mundane friends into heavy fighting. Apparently the scheme has worked; the Company has fielded as many as 22 heavy fighters at a time, most of them brought in to the SCA with no previous affiliation.
The Company of St Ulrich maintains a strong emphasis on heavy combat, specifically as an organized unit. The Company has become widely known for discipline and teamwork on the battlefield. Fighting members are expected to attend several warband practices throughout the year (twice a month in winter).
