You too can be a Rose.

His Excellency, Earl Dafydd, seems to inadvertantly mislead...

The Order of the Rose is open to any who have served as the Consort to 
the Soverign of a Laurel Kingdom.  Therefore, it is possible for Earl 
Dafydd to obtain membership by agreeing to stand as the Consort to a lady 
willing to fight for him in Crown.  Now, I would be greatly surprised if 
Countess Elizabeth were to allow this, and even more surprised if Her 
Excellency took up Rattan and won this honor for her Lord.  But the Rose 
certainly does not require surgery.

There is, at this time, to my knowledge, one Lord of the Rose, an 
Ansteorrian who was already Duke by his own hand.
