Corpora says that the Board can strip someone of their peerage or lesser
awards (http://sca.org/docs/govdocs.pdf and scroll down to page 29 for the
details.) Under most circumstances, I expect the Crown of a given kingdom
would need to make such a recommendation, otherwise the Board is unlikely
to be aware of the problem. Checking Ansteorran law, it says that a Court
of Chivalry is required before such a recommendation could come from
and scroll down to page 30.)
Although I'm reasonably sure that Courts of Chivalry *have* been called in
the SCA, I don't think one has ever been called in Ansteorra.
