Say you find yourself in a room with an armchair, a chair with a back but no arms, and a stool. Where do you, of lesser nobility, rest your weary self?
Armchair: Nope. This is for the King and Queen. Unless people are calling you “your majesty” you’d best back away.
Chair with a back, but without arms: Nope. That’s for those closest in rank to the King. Think a brother or a child.
Stool: Not this either. I know duchesses, and my lady, you’re no duchess.
Answer: None of the Above. You remain standing. Yes, lesser nobility stood. This was a trick question. Sorry about that.
