Non Mihi,Non Tibi,Sed Nobis
The Guild of Gloriana
Who are we and what do we do?
We are an entourage of friends and family from the Court of Elizabeth the Ist. We are
traveling throughout the English countryside in an attempt to escape London's summer
weather, court and political intrigue, and the never ending gossip that surrounds the queen
and her nobles. From our encampment we spend our days partaking in the daily festivities
of the local village. We haggle with the local merchants for goods and services and we
attempt to hold “court.” While enjoying the local festivities and the company of each other
we are still working out new trade agreements, drilling our troops should the need arise for
military action and receiving and sending dispatches on all sorts of matters - in short, we
are trying to make the best of being so far from home.
Who Are the Guild of Gloriana
The Guild of Gloriana is a Shrewswbury Renaissance Faire Living History Guild that
specializes in presenting the people and events at the time of Queen Elizabeth the 1st.
You will find us at Renaissance Faires and other events in the Pacific Northwest and
beyond. We are a a group formed to to promote an interest in the lifestyles, arts and crafts
of the Elizabethan era focusing on its* nobility. We show how they interacted within
society at the time of Elizabeth the 1st and to try and foster an awareness of how that
history and culture shaped the people we are today.
Each guild member portrays a specific historical figure from the Elizabethan era. We
strive to create programs to appeal both to the general public and the serious student, in
the hopes that we may awaken in all the desire to become more involved and to become
students themselves. It is our aim to make history come alive, to make it personal rather
than a mere recitation of dates and famous personages.
