Duke Sven Orfhendur, KSCA, found the SCA in 1984 while living in Altavia (shortly before the Canton of Dun Or formed). He has been active in the Kingdom pretty regularly since then, except for a brief stint of living in the West. He was knighted in 2001 and won Crown in 2006, 2008, and 2011. He is known for using interesting variations of Sven in tournaments. He fights for Cassandra Zoë Paganel. Sven is the head of Hús Beytill, a member of the Early Period Alliance and a Former Yarri Squire.
Sven is an 820s Danish Viking from the city of Hedeby. He is also a member of Siech Persistent.
