Colourful, to say the least, Dante is the face many people remember when they think of Borealis. He is the patriarch of 'House Machiavelli', a large and influential household based in Borealis consisting of 62 members.

Dante Machiavelli is most well known for the “Dante's Inferno” the tavern he runs at Quad War each year. House Machiavelli is one of the most active households in AnTir including participants in all combat disciplines and many of the Arts & Sciences. One of Dante’s greatest claims to fame is the 12 Daughters of Dante. Dante has also been responsible for the building of a rapier war scenario field known as “Cavalier City” and hosting “Dante’s Challenge” and the “Forlorn Hope” at the Quad War location. If you travel to Quad War make sure you stop by the “Inferno” for a drink and some entertainment.

Married to Galena Machiavelli – the love of his life and owner and operator of 'Galena's Closet' one of the most well known seamstresses in the Principality of Avacal.


Mundanely known as Alan Baldwin, and with at least as remarkable a history as his persona.

Prepare to Repel Boarders!

Dante is disallowed, by the Queen's decree, from wearing brown pants to SCA events. Be sure to ask him why - but only if he's wearing his red shirt.
