Clipart of an old king, holding an orb

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 27 October 2021, title.

When his general had vanquished the horde,
King unsure what to give as reward,
Should he make them a duke?
Might a baron rebuke?
Should he settle for humble old lord?

For all those people lucky enough to live in republics, this is how titles work in the UK. Your ancestor screwed someone over on behalf of the ruler? Then you’re in! There’s no merit in it at all.

  1. No, titles do not impress me but it is your countries history to have royals. I would say here many people
    are screwed over and the titles they receive are not worth mentioning.

    • you’re ie, right? The mechanism for electing the president I like (from what I know). That Higgins is HoS without being political, I like. I’m not sure we’d get that here.
      I’m less enthusiastic about the dail.
