Addressing Nobility in the Third Imperium   

Tom Chlebus (on Facebook) has made a point about the manner in which nobility should be addressed by others in a comment to one of my Wayhaven Traveller posts. So, here's the way (I think) it will go from this point forward IMTU:
Forms of Address for Nobility in the Third Imperium
Emperor / Empress – Your Majesty
    Prince / Princess – Your Majesty
Archduke / Archduchess (Domain) – Your Highness
    Duke / Duchess (Sector) – Your Grace
    Duke / Duchess (Subsector) – Your Grace
Count / Contessa – Your Excellency
Viscount / Viscountess – Your Excellency
Marquis / Marquesa – Your Excellency
Baron / Baroness – Your Lordship / Ladyship
    Baronet – Your Lordship / Ladyship
Knight / Dame – Milord / Milady
At some point (ugh, I say that far too much) I intend to correct the forms of address presented in these blog posts; it is far more likely that things will simply change from this point forward...
Merry Yule to you and yours!  :)
