Not about P's or R's
So, to start a totally new, uncontroversial subject...
What makes someone (e.g., Dafydd) an Earl?
I've looked through all the SCA info and FAQ's I have, but can't find
this. I can account for: King/Queen, Duke/Duchess, Baron/ess, Prince/ss,
Viscount/ess, Count/ess, those are easy to figure out.
Lord/Lady, if I understand it, is borne by anyone who has an AOA.
Master/Mistress is a Laurel holder (or a Pelican?)
Sir is a Knight--but what's a Lady Knight?
Also, why is Dafydd referred to as His Excellency? (Other than the fact
that he is excellent, I assume...)
And finally: How do you pronounce Dafydd?
Just some questions from a newbie,
