Noble Earl and Good Gentles,

I think it would be most helpful in framing this discussion to have some
more specifics on the reality of a Principality.  For many of the newer
folks, or even older folks such as myself who have not lived in a
Principality, there are probably many questions about what being a
Principality means.  Putting the political/cultural/social/etc. issues
aside, what are the nuts-and-bolts of it?  A few questions that come to
mind are:

1.  What is the relationship between the Crowns (?) of a Principality and
the Crowns of the parent kingdom?  Is it analagous to a royal/baronial
relationship, or something different?

2.  Does a Principality have separate orders (e.g., Pearl, Golden Dolphin,
etc.)?  If so, how do these relate/interact with kingdom level orders (or
do they)?  What about the peerages?

3.  Does a Principality have separate independent officers, officers who
serve under kingdom officers, or something else?

Such information might be useful in an FAQ posted somewhere. 

Your obedient servant,

Findlaech mac Alasdair
