Here is the section of Kingdom Law concerning Dukes and Duchess.


Section 1: Nobility

a. The Nobility, by reason of their rank and experience, shall have the
right and duty to counsel the Crown and Kingdom Officers.

b. Any Duke or Duchess entered in the Crown Lists shall have the right to
withdraw from the Crown Lists at any time.

In this Kingdom no one can enter into a crown list after it has started
(say during round three).  If it were allowed, I think you would have a
really good case to ask the BOD to over turn the results.  Sometimes in
this Kingdom the crown will choose different fighters to fight the byes,
often times it is an honor given to senior squires but not always.  

Other Kingdom do have different customs and may allow there Duke and
Duchess additional rights.
