Duke Alexander Caidus is a leader of the Horsemen of Judgment Keep.

Alexander was invited to the Order of Chivalry at Talon Crescent War 2016 by TRM Conrad and A'isha, and was knighted by Oz and Marisa at Highland War 2016. HG Alexander has twice served as the Crown of Caid with Tahira al-Fahida.


Alexander Æthelwulf is a 15th Century Englishman. Born from a line of Vikings who invaded and stayed in England, Alexander was the eldest son of Daniel Æthelwulf and Kathryn of Hornechurch. A loyal servant to Henry V, Alexander fell from grace of both church and state after his outspoken remarks regarding the suspicious death of King Henry and his sons. Vowing to pursue truth rather than fame or fortune, the Horsemen of Judgment Keep were forged from that anger of injustice waged upon his former King.

Alexander Caidus is a 1st century Roman. Although not of native birth, Alexander was taken from his homeland of Sparta and brought to Rome, as was the custom, to be trained in the arts of war by the powerful Roman War Machine. He became a Roman citizen and returned to his homeland where he serves as a liaison between the two cultures.

Also known as Alexander Hostilius of Caid, Alexander Æthelwulfes sunu and Alexander Æthelwulf

Garb Created

  • Early 14th Century English Garb - These items are primarily based on the documentation and writings of James Lavar. As these were made early in my SCA career and money was not as accessible, more attention was paid to design and less to material and construction.
