They've come a long way since William Marshal.

Damn, I was not studied up on William Marshal. Not sure I need to know very much - Wikipedia about covers it in their lede:

He served four kings — Henry II, Richard the Lionheart, John and Henry III — and rose from obscurity to become a regent of England for the last of the four, and so one of the most powerful men in Europe. Before him, the hereditary title of "Marshal" designated head of household security for the king of England; by the time he died, people throughout Europe (not just England) referred to him simply as "the Marshal".
