[Elfsea] Question of Oaths

[Sean Garrison, "Chains of our Faith", p17-18] He speaks of even the
lowest Man-at-Arms, who one day aspires to nobility, to take a vow to
support the Crown directly as part of their devotion in the game [being
his oath is to God, kingdom and to crown --- in that order].
Then would it not be proper that at the time of the Barron's oath to the
crown, that the Barron's guards also swear their oath to the crown as
well? Other than a show of support and unity, would the symbolism of
this act be missed by the court? Or would this be improper? Having
never been to the crowning of our kings, I have also never heard of
households or other companies swearing fealty to the crown.
Just a question?
