    I find this interesting as it reminds me of how nobles were expected to act back in the day. You got to be rich and powerful, but ultimately if your king or liege lord got involved in war or someone attacked your lands, you were at the head of the army. ;D

    Of course, that was the old way. Now everyone who leads often does so from the rear and has the “peasants” fight for them as cannon fodder…

      True! The nobles were also expected to raise their armies and pay for their equipment. What we’re seeing here is pretty much a front line “king” dealing with a guy who used his family’s influence to dodge the draft.
