Her Excellency Þorfinna gráfeldr is a norsewoman, born in Norway in 912. She left her homeland to follow a brother who went viking, and ended up near York, where she set up a small bit of land (Þorfinnastaadr) and settled down.
Þorfinna originally lived in her manor Þorfinnastaadr, in the Canton of Ardchreag in the Barony of Septentria. In AS 54 she moved to her manor of Raven Roost, in the Stronghold of Greyfells in the Barony of Skraeling Althing.
Þorfinna was a member of the Cliffguard (Ardchreag’s fighting force), and the Yeomen of the White Arrow (Ardchreag’s archery and thrown weapons unit). She is a member of the Bardic College of Ealdormere, the Games Guild of Ealdormere and Ealdormere College of Heralds. She was also a co-founder of the (now defunct) Septentrian Performing Arts Troupe. With Colyne Stewart she heads House Malepardus. She is one of the producers, and the main editor, of Ealdormere at Home.
