Why not? In the Period, did not the Duke of York, for example, hold
that title precisely because his brother was the King of England?
I propose that the Crown _should_ be allowed to grant titles to
his cronies, _but_ that only the currently-existing Court Baroncy
would remain in effect beyond the granting reign.

Wypped ful wel and wlonk;
The gayest into Grece,
The burne bede bryng his blonk.
Whyle the wlonkest wedes he warp on hymseluen --
His cote wyth the conysaunce of the clere werkez
Ennurned vpon veluet, vertuus stonez
Aboute beten and bounden, enbrauded semez,
And fayre furred withinne wyth fayre pelures --
3et laft he not the lace, the ladiez gifte,
That forgat not Gawayn for gode of hymseluen.
