Okenshield started it's journey to shire status in the spring of 2011.  Sponsored by the Barony of Fenix (Baron Angus and Baroness Hypatia).  The shire first submitted the name as Oakenshield but after consultation it was changed to Akumshield and finally Okenshield.  Okenshield grew out of a group of fighters that formed House Marius, this is seen in the device for the shire which shows three oak leaves.  Okenshield is the land of oaks and the shield of the south.
