The History of Ponte Alto

The name "Ponte Alto" is Italian, and means "high bridge." Due to the large number of bridges over the Potomac River in the area of Arlington and Fairfax Counties in Virginia, it seemed an appropriate name. Ponte Alto began as an incipient Canton within the Barony of Storvik. Growing quicky, the Barony went from official Canton status to incipient Barony in a matter of minutes during one royal court. Ponte Alto was elevated to full Baronial status at the Investiture of Niall and Teleri, on leap day, February 29, 1992.

Baronial Charter

A beautiful scroll of our original Baronial Charter was made by Gwyneth Maeve of Falconguard with help from Thorin aus der Schwarzrose. It includes the registered devices of founding members of the barony along with the Baronial arms.

Historical Event Matrix
