Arms of the Barony of Flaming Gryphon
Modern Location:Southwest Ohio

Flaming Gryphon is a barony located in Southwest Ohio.


Cantons and Groups

It is comprised of 4 Shires. They are the Marche of Winged Hills, the Shire of Havenhold, the Canton of Hawkes Keye, and the Shire of Norborough.

As of 2017, we have 3 dormant shires: the Marche of the Unicorn (now the Miami University Medieval Club), the Marche of Flaming Sword, and the College of St. Joan.

The original shires were given permission to call themselves Marches because they formed a Barony from groups that had been part of Middle Marches.

Another of the original shires later became the Barony of Fenix.
