Seigneur Frédéric de Cherbourg is a late 15th century Frenchman from Normandy. Born in Cherbourg, sometime after the Hundred Years' War, his love for traveling brought him to Caid, where he settled within the borders of the Barony of Altavia. He was awarded arms, in A.S. XXXV, by Guillaume I and Felinah I. An archer and poet, he is also well practiced in the fine art of period dance. His love of the history of theatre led him to the Right Noble Guild of St. Genesius, and earned him admittance to the Right Noble Order of the Harp Argent in A.S. XLI, granted by Sven and Kolfinna I. As a member of the singing group, Cliar Cu Buidhe, he received L'Honneur de la Chanson from Edward and Mora in A.S. XLIII along with the other members. In A.S. XLVII, he received further recognition as a bard as well as for his brewing skills by elevation to the Order of the Lux Caidis by Sven III and Cassandra. Frédéric is a member of the Household of Cliar Cu Buidhe.
