I've always really liked "your Grace" as a title even though I've never yet been tempted to write a duke hero. Isn't there also a rule where you can call a Duke "Sir"? I seem to remember the Duke of Avon's son calling him "Sir" in Devil's Cub.

Yes, I think you're right, especially in cases where you'd use "sir" in general as a title of respect--son to father, subordinate addressing a senior military officer, etc.

The only two English dukedoms I can think of that were bestowed for merit alone (as distinct from royal connection or great wealth) were those of Marlborough and Wellington. Peter G. Shilston
