Except for one minor detail: Unless the Board also changes the way 
Crowns are chosen, we're going to see darn few solo Queens on the 
throne. In the entire history of the SCA, we've had *one* Queen by 
right of arms. In that same timeframe we've had maybe half a dozen 
territorial Princesses by right of arms.

And as a rapie fighter, White Scarf, leader of the Legion of 
Swashbucklers and Elisabethan gentleman, I *really* don't like the 
idea of not having a Queen.
