could become all the rage. The rapier community would have to adjust if no
female consort and the chivalric community would have to do the same if a
woman sat the throne such as Duchess Rowan once did. It would only be for
six months and everyone would survive.

I believe the Queen's Champion for Queen Rowan was a Chivalric Champion and during that reign, King Hector's King's Champion was a Rapier Champion.
Although it was before I found The Dream, I believe I am correct. This would seem to set the precedence, in Ansteorra at least, that who ever wins by right of arms, no matter the gender, would have a champion from the Chivalric field.
