Ah yes. That is true.

Then I suppose that would leave out any technical justification for "sir" and "lady" that I can think of beyond just another way to optionally address someone of a knight rank honorably. :)

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

For instance, you could call me "Grandmaster Mark" but there's really no need to! :D


Only in the bedroom eh Mark?

Although I do think we should be able to address knights via Sir? I.e. Sir Akkarin/Sir Michael? Even if it's between us...I think it'd add more of a seriousness about us...but then again we're all brothers and sisters here...so it's quite relaxed....

What if we use the idea within some kind of ceremonial light, even if it's only ever used then?

Example: During the Knighting Ceremony, at or near the end, you could say "I now dub thee Sir/Lady [such and such]"

Again, we don't really have the right to award such titles....

"In the British honor system the knightly style of Sir is accompanied by the given name, and optionally the surname.....
Outside the British honours system it is usually considered improper to address a knighted person as 'Sir' or 'Dame'."

As I love conversation, and being a pain...

And as an American, I feel I have the right to say and do what ever I damn well please, let me ask...

(just kidding)

What give the British the excluvsive right?

Seriously, Im just curious...

I am hoping as a dumb uneducated, colonist, to understand this part...

(seriously, why is this the only authority?)

We (the UK) are not the only authority, It's just that we are the ones that mainly use such titles as part of our honours system. Some of our "Commonwealth" adopt them too but you guys broke away long ago! :D

As an extra note of trivia: in the UK, ordained Ministers cannot use the prefix "Sir" or "Dame" when they achieve a sufficient honour unless they were ordained after their Knighting.

We have a queen...without a king and/or queen there can not be knights...because of medieval times...America has no king or queen Jestor...
