Mistress Adelheit began playing in Gyldenholt back in 2003, but due to life circumstances, had to relocate to the West Kingdom in 2008, where her schedule did not allow time to play. After six long years, she was able to move back to Gyldenholt in 2014 where she has found her passion for reenacting rekindled. Her main interest is in Tailoring techniques of the sixteenth century. While she prefers to study Germanic Regional clothing, she is known to jump to other times and places every now and then. Her other interests include millinery, smocking, cordwaining, calligraphy, cooking and brewing.

Adelheit was elevated to the Order of the Laurel by Athanaric and Sigriðr on 01/09/1916.


Wife of a successful Nuremberg Tailor, Adelheit finds herself helping in her husband's shop most days. She takes great interest in the cut and construction of the clothes for the customers of all ranks and classes that commission clothing at their shop. When not working in the shop, she also finds time to practice her writing skills, cook, and even brew.
