True, and if we could adopt Duke Cariadoc's suggestion about counties and 
duchies, we wouldn't need principalities.

	[Cariadoc suggested that we group three or four local groups into
	 counties and duchies to be headed by our Royal peers.  Check out
	 Gregory Blount's web site for His Grace's Miscellanie.]

And France, in the late middle ages, was composed of a lot of Big 
Duchies, and the Ilse de France, the royal lands around Paris, which wasn't 
larger then most Duchies.
