Officially? No. But our crowns and nobles are not fools; they understand
Once, many years ago, a woman staggered into the fire ring struggling with
an enormous pot, which contained the stew for that night's feast. Around
the ring were the King and Queen of Atenveldt, the Prince and Princess of
Ansteorra, the Baron of Stargate, and various peers. She yelled out, "Get
out of the way. I outrank all of you -- I'm the cook."
