About the Shire

The Shire of Trysel is the local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). The SCA is an international non-profit educational organization dedicated to recreating the Middle Ages (defined as roughly 600 to 1600 A.D.). The SCA has divided the Knowne World into seventeen kingdoms, or regions. The Shire of Trysel is located in the glorious Kingdom of Trimaris, which itself, encompasses Florida, Panama, and Antarctica. Specifically, the Shire of Trysel is located in Lee County in the state of Florida

The Oak Tree of Trysel
Raymond the Scot


In the Kingdom of the South Lords,
Beside a sparkling sea,
Within a pleasant land
There grows a tall oak tree.
Beneath its spreading branches
A noble people dwell:
The Lords and Ladies of the 
Shire of Trysel.

Here may be heard the echoes
Of ancient chivalry;
Its virtues recreated
In the shelter of our tree;
Companions come together 
A new story to tell
About our happy fellowship
In the Shire of Trysel.

Let mundane cares and worries
For now be put aside.
Take up the dream before us
Good pastimes be our guide;
United by the spirit
In which we choose to dwell:
In the shadow of our oak tree
In the Shire of Trysel.

In the shadow of our oak tree
In the Shire of Trysel.
