Re: Prince & Jarl

Maybe we are all talking about a different kind of "Prince."  Perhaps a prince
of the "blood," or of the "knowledge."  Maybe the title was just "slipped into"
the record, without explanation, with the idea that we, as a people much given
to a "natural" curiosity, would never stop asking questions, and would continue
searching for those answers, down through the ages, until whenever "Truth" would
conquer "All!"  What think?

All Best!
