Alaric Wulfgar of Amberwood previously resided within the Shire of Perilous Visions, Kingdom of the West, and then sojourned in Ansteorra and later still in the Barony of Drachenwald, Kingdom of the East; then moved to the future Shire of Darkwell upon returning from military service at the beginning of A.S. XV.
Alaric and his wife, Lady Aislynn of Amberwood, met in the summer of A.S. XVI (1981 c.e.) through mutual friends who were working to establish a local SCA branch, and were wed in December, A.S. XVI. They remained active in the Shire of Darkwell, along with their daughters, until leaving Caid for the wilds of An Tir in A.S. XXII. For many reasons, participation within the Society ended following this move; however, in September A.S. XL, the Household rejoined the Society, with the intent of becoming active in the Canton of Porte de L'Eau, Barony of Madrone, Kingdom of An Tir.
Alaric Wulfgar was born about 1040 c.e. in the Northman settlement in France. His parents came to England as part of the entourage of Ralph the Timid, not long after his birth. They held lands in Herefordshire until 1055 when Gruffydd ap Llywelyn invaded and defeated the forces led by the Earl of Hereford.
