As it happens, I was an Amherst College classmate (1981) of Albert Grimaldi, Prince of Monaco, on whom I have in part modeled Ferdi's seriousness of purpose. (If my country were electing a constitutional monarch I would vote for Albert in a minute.) If Albert had a bodyguard at Amherst, we other students never saw evidence of it. He did have a coterie of loyal friends among his follow students who helped to protect his privacy. Ferdi, of course, offers a higher-stake target to an assassin or kidnapper. The notion of a nobleman having a personal retainer is also considerably less obsolete in this timeline. (DAMB)
