ur organization specializes in the general recreation of the culture of the Middle Ages including all of the Art Forms, Events (Feasts, Tournaments, Ceremonies and Wars) and Combat Arts from that period.

The purpose of this nonprofit educational corporation is to study, and teach the general public, ideals and history from 800 AD to 1650 AD, specifically covering the geographical boundaries of Europe, and to provide an organized effort in the collection, interpretation and distribution of historical data through publication and demonstration.

We hold events that allow you to compete in the combat or gentler arts and have fun doing it! We also hold demonstrations of Medieval Culture for the General Public, Schools (K-12) and Universities. The Empire of Chivalry and Steel also strives to promote the ideals of Honour and Chivalry in all of our activities.

Branches of the ECS may be started with as few as 5 Members in an area. The Sovereign Territories are governed by a Parliamentary Government with a King and/or Queen (Prince/Princess for Pricipalities) as its leaders.

The overall objective of the ECS is to Have Fun and to promote the Culture and Traditions of the Middle Ages.
