Duke. Definition: a nobleman of the highest hereditary rank.
Duchess. Definition: a woman who holds the rank of duke in her own right; maintains a white function on the Board; loves to travel; enjoys reading, technical writing, and editing; not affiliated with the Duchess of Hearts or any other classical story.
A 4-month native to London, England, Duchess was originally known as the Duchess of Westminster, but later shortened the title once she returned to the United States of America. The name was set to be retired, but after much penname deliberation, Duchess was resurrected, and she has been known as Duchess ever since. Duchess loves grammar and editing, but not as much as Ambrosia, and admires Ambrosia’s expertise. Duchess loves European chocolate, traveling, The 100-Hour Board, and swing dancing (even though she doesn't really remember much). Her hair will probably always be shoulder-length, she’ll probably always reject marriage proposals online, and she knows the archives better than the Webmaster ‘cause she’s been around longer.
