Sir Barnick, Sir (now Duke) Jonathan and Sir Jean Guy were all together on the day King Thorfin of Atenveldt officially established the Order of the Knights of St. Michael at a Estrella War. This happened long ago when Atenveldt was still comprised of Utah and Arizona. There has been speculation about whose idea it was, but in fact, it was all three of them that were on the field that day before the King ruminating and brainstorming together. Sir Barnick and Sir Jean were influenced by Clan Blue Bear, to an extent, which was a Knight brotherhood lead by Duke Sir Mark Von Newman and Viscount Sir Gilbert. The Knights of St. Michael was incorporated to “not just talk the talk, but to walk the walk”. To be honest, chivalrous and humble. To set as an example. The Knights of Saint Michael are expected to be shining examples in thoughts and deed in all aspects of the SCA at the sacrifice of personal gain or recognition in the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood.

Purpose

The Knights of St. Michael (KOSM) is a group of SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) Knights, based loosely on the monastic Knightly orders of the medieval crusades. It is based primarily within the SCA Kingdom of Atenveldt, but has members throughout the known world. In order to be considered to become a “Knight” within the Knights of St. Michael, a person must already be a Knight within the SCA. Individuals who have not attained Knighthood within the SCA may also join the order, but cannot become “Knights” of the order. These select SCA Peers are called Castellans of St Michael.

The Purpose and Goals of the order are as follows:

  1. To strive to become examples of the romantic ideals of chivalry and to promote this chivalric behavior by the actions of the members of the order.
  2. To provide a safe and fun environment in which the members can enjoy the activities of the SCA.
  3. To contribute to the defense of the Kingdom through the organization and training of units and individuals in the arts or war, particularly those associated with large unit tactics.
  4. To provide opportunities for camaraderie and acts of renown upon the field of battle.
  5. To support the re-creation of the Middle Ages in authentic manners, by striving to portray all aspects of life in this time period, especially those relevant to a monastic order without putting more emphasis on the religious aspects than is absolutely necessary.

KOSM was not established as a political group and as a group does not espouse any political stances except those specifically derived from the purpose of the order. Individual Knights may have political leanings, but these leanings should not be confused with the goals and/or purpose of the order.
