Speaking of landed knights, what happens when Sylvia Santagar inherits her father’s lands and titles? She’s his heir… but his title is a knighthood, and women can’t be knights, even in Dorne. It kinda feels like the title of landed knighthood, as presented by Martin (because of course there were knights with land in the actual medieval period), is a result of his perhaps-too-through scouring of medieval titles from his feudal rankings.

Either she becomes a Dame (which, still possible), or her husband becomes Knight of Spottswood by jure uxoris.
