Rolla Nordic was a Craft name of Murielle Berulfsen (nee Baker), (2 Dec 1898 - 14 Sep 1995).[1][2][3] She was a Witch and designer of tarot cards. She had several books published, including Tarot Shows the Path in 1961,[4] and she also appeared on several television shows.

Nordic was one of the early claimants to come from a Hereditary Witchcraft family, claiming to have been initiated into the Celtic tradition by her grandmother.[5] She went on to form a coven that allegedly met in a cathedral during the Second World War, and also alleged that;

During the [Second World] war there two hundred of us [Witches] and we met every Tuesday in a certain place in London, and always sat at the same place and we sent colour rays to where was the worst fighting.[6]

She also claimed to have studied with "the best Ceremonial Magician in London", Dolores North.

She married Harald Berulfsen in 1942 in Liverpool.[7]
