That all depends on the individual.  Did you get a peerage or an AoA
from the *two tired people under those heavy brass hats*?  Fact is,
most people can and do tell the difference between one pair of
rulers and another, and they care.  I agree with you.  Kein will
appreciate the gift of a new weapon (I can tell you, he never
gets tired of them) just as much whether he's king or not.  But
to some, giving a gift to King Kein is a much different thing
than giving a gift to Duke Kein will be.  It's an emotional issue
to them, and frankly, they'll greatly resent the herald who won't
let them have time in court.
