I am Domina Furia Maxima, Baroness of the Court of Gaia Aurelia and Ajax in the Kingdom of Northshield. My persona is that of an early 1st century CE Roman courtesan in the educational non-profit organization called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). I work to re-create, within reason, my chosen time period and persona. Now, if you are wondering what all that means, skip down to the bottom.

My educational background is in psychology for which I have a B.A. with a focus on social psychology and neuropsychology. 

The content herein focuses on such things as: historical jewelry, Ancient Rome, reenactment, re-creation, historical fashion, historical sex-workers/courtesans, historical sexuality.

This site will always be evolving as more/new information becomes available to me. I don’t know all about anything but I know small bits about a lot of things, and I love to share.

I always welcome questions and feedback. Feel free to message me and I will respond promptly. I assure you, I enjoy hearing from people and talking Roman.

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an inclusive nonprofit educational group that is dedicated to researching and re-creating pre-17th century cultures (how they should have been). For more information on the SCA, follow this link to get to the SCA’s website: What Is The SCA.

A persona is the person that I have chosen to portray if I lived in that time period. It is not based on an actual person. Having a courtesan persona means just that, a persona.

I’m also a part of the Knowne World Courtesans. A free confederation of people who have historical sex-worker personas in the SCA. The group is dedicated to researching, educating, and portraying historical sex workers.

*Being a part of the group is in no way required to have a courtesan persona.
