The custom is at least 12 years old.  I remember being rather disconcerted
when Duke Olaf gave me my AoA at Sheep Wars in Meridies.  Never having
encountered the custom, I was quite disconcerted when a gentleman (Duke
Barry before he *was* Duke Barry :D)  took my arm as I approached the
Throne and escorted me the rest of the way.  I remember thinking "doesn't
he think I can manage it on my own?" (I used to be a strong willed and
opinionated young thing :D)

 But in hindsight, I find the custom quite charming.
