Burk's Peerage and Knightage or simply Burk's is the official almanak of the knights, dames, barons, baronesses, counts, countesses, dukes and duchesses of the Kingdom. Burk’s is not a mere armorial as it is supposed to list the name, arms, lineage and biography of each royal and noble in the Kingdom. Burk’s is named after Milwaukee’s first true royalty, Barbara Burk Baugh Waters, who wore a crown as Miss Milwaukee and Miss Wisconsin in 1967, and went on to become second runner-up to Miss America in 1968. Sadly, she passed away in 2002. Burk's Peerage is maintained by the College of Arms.
