Actually, I believe I said that Trimaris has only three baronies 
(actually, I thought it was four) therefore they do not need to be organized
into principalities.  Atlantia has thirteen baronies and a number of large
shires, and could easily be organized into multiple principalities.

I'm not sure our reasons for not advancing the principality movement are
necessarily the same as yours.

Okay, Viscounts...
		  ...its all the reason I need.  And it overrides any
objection I have ever heard.

Sadly, I am not sure Atlantia is growing.  Certainly a number of nearby 
baronies are suffering activity declines, according to antedotal evidence 
(in other words, so I've been told).
