Counties and Duchies can be a slippery slope where the BoD is concerned.
Yes, the Landed Baronage is the standing representative of the Crown to a
Barony. But any noble can be appointed as an official representative for an
event if there is no Baron/ess and the Crown cannot attend. All it takes is
the Crown to choose representatives for the event, and send the awards and
charters to them. Tivar and I have held court in the Crown's name for a
number of years, usually in the Shadowlands.
However, we have never handed out anything above AoA level, which I think is
totally appropriate. I know if I were to be given something of GoA level or
higher, I'd want a Prince/ss or King/Queen to be the hand I received it
