The World Has Changed

As we navigate the continually evolving COVID-19 situation, The Kingdom of Terre Neuve continues to operate in a very limited mode.
As your Lord and Lady protectors, we are monitoring the situation and will do our best to keep our members updated with the latest information as it becomes available. We are keeping in touch with our estates via Facebook and Zoom and have taken this opportunity to begin a revamp of our Kingdom website.

We encourage the populace to observe all shelter in place guidelines to help keep us all safe. While we follow the shelter in place orders, our ministers are still working for the kingdom, discussing future activities and methods of staying active. We encourage you to help educate those around you about the necessity of limiting the spread of the virus by observing social distancing guidelines, washing your hands and above all WEAR THAT MASK IN PUBLIC! If you don't wear a mask, you run a greater risk of infecting someone else who may be more susceptible or who may carry the virus home to their loved ones. Do it for them.
Faires and festivals are closing almost daily.
In this time of uncertainty, every living history organization is tasked with making unprecedented decisions. Be considerate of others and take into account the fact that everyone is under a lot of stress and inconvenience. Be excellent to each other. We'll get through this.

We will continue to share updates and ask that you continue to support Terre Neuve and The Adrian Empire by keeping your hobby alive at home! Dig out those old arts and sciences projects that never quite got finished. Build a new pell and hit it 100 times a day! Write an article and post it on the Facebook page. Share your knowledge in any way you can while we stay in this together yet must be apart.
Please, keep in mind that while wearing masks may become uncomfortable and is inconvenient, you are doing it for your loved ones and the people around you.
Thank you for your continued support!

Fortus et Fidus!

Welcome to The Kingdom of Terre Neuve!

The Kingdom of Terre Neuve is a chapter of the Adrian Empire inc. which occupies the geographic area of San Diego County South of State Route 52 and all of Imperial County CA, USA.

The Adrian Empire is a non-profit educational organization that re-creates history from the time frame of 793 to 1625 AD. This time frame covers what was known as the Middle Ages (Medieval) through the Renaissance period.

Every month we have tournaments which in addition to event service (we call it ministry) include unchoreographed Combat, Archery and Arts & Sciences competitions.

The Adrian Empire is an educational organization so we are often asked to run and participate in demonstrations at schools, libraries, renaissance faires, living history festivals and The San Diego Comic Convention.
If you would like to learn more about our Kingdom or any of our upcoming events please feel free to contact our Hospitaler.

Website Maintenance


The beta test for the new website is up. Waiting on input from the Crown.


The library page is now up. Please let me know of any omissions or errors. Received permission to move ahead with restructuring etc. Drop dead date for rolls entry in the current system will be Augutst 15th, 2020.


Brought all pages up to standards compliance mode. The site had been in quirks mode to accomodate uncommon and outdated browsers. You should not see any difference unless you are using an older outdated or uncommon web browser.


Finished updating the policy pages and put links to them in the footer. Added the list of current ministers to the contact page.


No response from the host regarding tech support. Not all that crazy about the host. I took the gallery page I wrote and made a slideshow out of it for you. Find them both on the Museum page. Still working on unpacking the database. Once that is accomplished I'll get on the calendar and member's section of the website. All of the old site is still there, you just need to know the magic way in...


Added the Crown portrait to the contact page. Exploring solutions regarding the database. Working with web host tech support. There won't be many visible updates for the next week or so but the guts of the website are being maintained.


Most static pages have been updated. We are currently working on the slideshow and calendar sections. ETA sometime next week. Maybe.


It's broke so we're fixing it.

Most areas of the website have been taken down and are being updated. They will be unavailable until further notice.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
