Knights Order of Lion Rampant

The Knights Order of the Lion Rampant. Photp Brett Croese.

Knights Order of Lion Rampant is a Brisbane-based group dedicated to recreating the spectacle and excitement of high medieval tournament.

Since 1991, Lion Rampant has developed an enthusiastic following and an enviable reputation among its international peers. Lion Rampant focuses on the culture of western and central European nobility during the high middle ages. The fashions, arms, armour and accessories used by the group are typical of the closing years of the fourteenth century.

Coming into the Fourteenth Century from a modern perspective can be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. Lion Rampant doesn’t just mimic the Age of Chivalry, we ‘live it’. Armouring, leather working, archery, sewing, metal and wood working, pottery, cooking, performing, medieval martial arts and making friends are all part of Lion Rampant. Our scenarios at shows give the general public a snap shot of the activities taking place in a fourteenth century tournament encampment.

We have a ‘Court of Chivalry’ for those interested in our combat training and tournament performance and a ‘Court of Love’ for those interested in the finer, gentler arts. Both are open to young and old, male and female, although there is an age restriction on minors interested in combat training. Lion Rampant meets each week and is always open to new members and welcome enquiries from those who share our love of medieval history and the culture of chivalry.

Knights of the Longdog
A group which portrays the 14th century period of 1350-1450 during the reign of King Edward III of England.

Knights of the Longdog are on a noble quest to educate people about the important role Greyhounds played in Medieval times, and about what wonderful pets Greyhounds make. The group represent a new generation of champions – they don’t wear chain mail, joust or win sword fights.

But they’re brave, fearless, and loyal – much like their Hounds.
