I’m not expressing an opinion one way or the other, but remember that we
are re-creating “medieval” times where royalty and their guests/friends
ranked higher than those who labored in the kitchens.  We often put our
modern sensibilites into the medieval atmosphere we say we are re-creating.
We want nobles, dukes and kings, but then we say that they aren’t any
better than anyone else... :-)
