Re: Fwd: [Northshield]: Jafar's Dukedom

I was thinking about this and about the only other vague parallel I'm 
aware of in the SCA--the Dowager Princess Janeltis.

I never knew Jafar, but because he died when he was Prince of the 
Midrelm, I think of him as HRH Jafar.

The Board can't grant Jafar a Dukedom unless they change Corpora.  But, 
as they granted an otherwise not used title to Her Serene Highness 
Janeltis, Dowager Princess of An Tir, could they perhaps grant a similar 
not used title to Jafar?

And since he died a Prince, could the title include Prince?  Maybe 
"Prince Eternal" or "Prince Medeterranea" translated into the most 
appropriate language?

I don't think there's anything in Corpora forbidding them to do this, as 
there is specifically forbidding them to grant him the title of Duke.  
(Mind, though, that they Granted HSH Janeltis' title many, many years 

My earlier suggestion of waiting a year for petitions to circle the 
*next time* this happens still holds.  I think time to cooly consider is 
a Good Thing.
