Ok...there are nobles with the ranks of dukes and all that but with, for sure, different titles. It is true that Yip is from the 'Duke' of Ip, as there is actually a place in central China that was once called 'Yeh-di' or 'Yeh-Bay' (I dunno the mandarin for bay) and the title was rewarded to a duke in early years of Han dynasties.(My dad told me about the date but I forgot) Will this help?
