Meisterinne Genoveva von Lübeck found the SCA through her friend, Duchess AnneMarie de Garmeaulx, in 1997, but it took until 2011 before she became a card carrying member. She is best known for her research and re-creation of German Renaissance clothing and artifacts, though she also enjoys serving her Barony and the Middle Kingdom in a variety of positions. She has a particular fondness for pleatwork (modernly known as smocking), and has been researching it for several years.



Genoveva is from Lubeck, Germany. She was born in 1468 to a Lübecker Bürgomeister (mayor) by the name of Christophe von Wickede and his wife, Eva von Tode. She has birthed one healthy child, a son, from a marriage that ended in an early death. She is now a wealthy widow that enjoys and supports the arts, sciences, and services in her community. Rumor has it she occasionally disappears for months at a time with the local Landsknecht (military unit) and joins the tross (army train) for it is said, in scandalous whispers, that she has a Liebhaber amongst them and that is how she enjoys such a high standard of living for being just a mere widow.
