Alexander is currently inactive and will be taking his leave of the SCA effective 9/1/2019, his final event will be Baroness Wars VII.

Alexander joined the SCA in 1995, A.S. 30, when he attended his first meeting in the Shire of Dark River. He has been largely active since his first meeting with occasional breaks to focus on non-SCA life.

He has been involved in the SCA in 3 Kingdoms during this time, from his start in Dark River, to a brief residency in the Shire of Owlsherst in the East Kingdom and a period where he was treatied to the Kingdom of Calontir, though he never lived within the geographical borders of Calontir. Most recently, since December of 2008 A.S. 43, he has lived in the Barony of Ayreton where he resides with his domestic partner Hanß Leiland Adelbrecht.

Alexander became the Premiere Protege of Master Etienne le Couteau des Roches in November, 2011 A.S. 46.

Alexander is no longer active in the SCA after breaking from the organization after August 2019.


His Lordship, Alexander Adelbrecht von Markelingen, is an early 14th century German Country Nobleman who lives in the former Duchey of Swabia, Born November 11th, 1277.
Alexander maintains an Estate in the Village of Markelingen where he has a small farm of Black Currant Bushes which he sends to the Emperors Kitchen, as his family had done for more than a century before.

He has one Sister who lives in the neighboring Freie Stadt where she raises here three children.

Alexander is an Orphan, who had been kidnapped by thieves who killed his mother and wet nurse while traveling as an infant to visit his Grand-Mother. The thieves took him, intending to sell him, but the wife of one of the criminals took him as her own and raised him. Upon learning of the death of his wife and, as he believed his son and heir, Alexanders father took his own life. His "adopted father" was a violent drunkard who often beat the young child. The man did teach Alexander to beg and steal to aid his new family in surviving.

In his twelfth year, Alexander was caught trying to steal the purse of a young noble woman during a festival, he escaped them, but was followed and the noble woman and her husband witnessed in secret as young Alexander was beaten for failing to bring home any money that night and only managing to bring home a partial loaf of bread. The two young nobles waited until thieves had drunk themselves to sleep and and spirited the young Alexander away in the night. They took him in and gave him protection, tutors and clothing. He ate well and grew to become a capable and honorable young man.

In his twenty-fourth year, he set out to find his home and true family. He found his families Estates in the hands of the church. He toiled to reclaim his birthright and by the twenty-fifth year he regained the Estate under condition that he would pay to the church a handsome sum each year.
