Baroness Flavia Beatrice Carmigniani, OL, OP, is a former Baroness of the Angels and a member of the Griffin Freehold.

Flavia was highly active before and during the birth of the Kingdom of Caid. At that time, she was known as "Bjo of Griffin." Many historical pages on this site refer to her by that name.


Maestra Flavia Beatrice Carmigniani is a Genoese merchant baroness who traveled with her uncle to the great trade markets of the Middle East. Since businesswomen are accepted in her part of the world, she started her own dye trade, gathering all sorts of fabric and dyeing materials from Aleppo to Genoa. It was, of course inevitable that she would one day cross paths with a handsome Welsh merchant (John ap Griffin). Their mutual love of merchanting, travel and each other has led to a thriving business and wonderful marriage of many years. They maintain two homes, one in Genoa and one in Constantinople. They have two daughters: Lady Kathryn du Griffin, who is a talented graphic artist, and Dame Lorissa du Griffin, who had the distinction of being the SCA's youngest monarch as a 10-year-old Princess of Caid.
