That's not a counter-example, that's supporting evidence.  What this 
knight has done, though, it usurp the poragatives of the Crown, by 
personally recognizing eclady as his peer.  He should go and get King 
Timothy to correct that problem, despite the objectionscof any of his 
fellow companionscof the Chivalry.

Thanks for the help,
