Harry Heydon X

a.k.a. Sir Xrofer Heydon

I have been a part of Blades of Glory since I was 10 years old by helping set up and tear down as well as be a squire to the knights. Now I am in my mid-20’s and one of the knights of the realm! I was born into this family business and even if I wasn’t, I’m sure I would find out about Blades of Glory somehow. I love the medieval atmosphere and the shows we attend and host every year. I love putting on a show with my fellow knights for the wonderful crowds that gather to see us fight! I also love to educate the children and the adults that come to our shows about ancient history. “

Fighter Profile

Sir Xrofer Heydon

Sir Xrofer Heydon hails from the ancient Heydon family, one of the notable gentry families in Norfolk. His lineage is steeped in military service and loyalty to the Crown.

Born into the turbulent era of the Wars of the Roses, a series of civil wars fought over control of the throne of England, Sir Xrofer was raised in a family loyal to the House of York. His upbringing was marked by rigorous training in arms and chivalry, preparing him for service to his lord and king. As a young squire, he witnessed the shifting allegiances and brutal power struggles that defined his time.

Sir Xrofer was driven by a fervent loyalty to King Henry VI and the House of York. His commitment to his family’s honour and his fervent belief in the Yorkist cause propelled him into numerous battles. He viewed combat not only as a duty but as a path to personal glory and a way to uphold his family’s esteemed reputation.

Sir Xrofer distinguished himself during key battles of the Wars of the Roses, including the First Battle of St Albans in 1455 and the Battle of Towton in 1461. His prowess in combat and unyielding spirit earned him the respect of his peers and superiors, eventually leading to his appointment as a Knight of the Garter. His tactics and bravery helped turn the tides in favour of the Yorkists on more than one occasion.

After years of loyal service, Sir Xrofer retired from active duty, his legacy as a warrior secure. However, the call of “The Realm” proved too strong to resist. Drawn to the timeless battlefield, he saw it as a chance to relive the thrill of combat and teach new warriors the art of war. At “The Realm,” he fights not only for glory but also to inspire others with his undying courage and resolve.

“Hearken to me, brave spectators and valiant foes! I stand before you a knight tried and true, my blade as sharp as my honour is pure. In the name of Heydon, I have come to claim victory once more. Let none doubt the might of a true Yorkist knight, for my resolve is as firm as the steel of my sword!”
