Funnily enough, the RfS deal with this exact name in VI.1:

"1. Names Claiming Rank. Names containing titles, territorial claims, or 
allusions to rank are considered presumptuous. 

Titles like Earl and Duke generally may not be used as Society names, 
even if the title is the submitters legal name. Names documented to have 
been used in period may be used, even if they were derived from titles, 
provided there is no suggestion of territorial claim or explicit assertion 
of rank. For example, Regina the Laundress is acceptable but Regina of 
Germany is not."
