Alter Atlantia?

If the part of Atlantia where you dwell became a Principality
would that 50% of the current Kingdom Order Candidates  (those
that you have a face for) also reside in the Principality?

I think we'd need to do something to counteract the strong Eastern
Rite tendency for Pricipalities to "go Kingdom".  I propse that
we could do that by forming the Principality in the northern half
of the Kingdom and naming it Alter Atlantia.  (You can interpret
this as either Latin for "The Other Atlantia" or German for "The
Elder Atlantia".)  We would call the southern half of the Kingdom
simply Atlantia, and the two halves together, Greater Atlantia.

This naming scheme would remind us that the Principality remained
an integral part of the Kingdom, and have the added bonus of reminding
all the other Laurel Kingdoms that Atlantia is greater.
