Genoveva

Genoveva at the spring Coronation of Savaric and Julianna

Genoveva von Lübeck is from Lübeck, 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 (mercenary army) 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.

Colors: Green, white, and red (see heraldry)

Interests: Arts & Sciences (German Renaissance clothing and culture, embroidery, woodworking, camping) and Service (chatelaine, webminister, chronicler, cartographer)

Clothing Styles: Early Modern German (16th century German, mostly the first half of the century), with a little bit of Viking, Tudor, and Flemish throw in — time period ranging from 1468-1550 (15th and 16th centuries)
