Perhaps someone at the State Department did let this get through.  However
it is illegal (actually unconstitutional) for any citizen of the United
States to accept a title of nobility from a foreign country.  That is why
Americans (especially ex-Presidents) who get inducted into orders in Britain
are not "knighted," but made "Commanders" or some-such of the order.  It is
somewhat akin to choosing to be a MSCA instead of a KSCA.

Of course that begs the question if our accepting of noble titles from the
Kingdom of Atlantia is illegal...
