A Court Grandee is an individual who has expressed interest in the support and promotion of the Krewe of Krazo and the Eureka Gras Mardi Gras Extravaganza – and who wishes to participate in the Royal Grand Scheme with its entitlements and responsibilities, as follows:

Eligibility in becoming a “Senior” Court Grandee.

Eligibility for becoming King or Queen

Process Official Agreement with dues of $125 annually  (Note: Annual Dues provide one seat at each of the two Krewe of Krazo Balls — Hookers and Jokers and Coronation Balls)


A “Court Grandee” is an “Invited” individual who must have the same qualifications as a Cavalier and subscribes to a similar formal membership agreement.  This “Invitation” is extended by result of a voting process of members of the Corps du Cavalier.

Dues are $125 per year which assures each Court Grandee a seat at each of the two

Cavalier balls at a table to be designated.  A Grandee Guest, one only, may be seated with them by purchasing Ball invites for a consideration of $100.

A Court Grandee is entitled to being drafted to become a Duke or Duchess, if not already part of their portfolio.

A Court Grandee, who has been Duke or Duchess, and has reached second year status, is eligible to become a “Senior” Court Grandee by invitation of the Corps du Cavalier.

This level entitles them to wear a Purple Sash similar to the Gold Sash worn by Cavaliers.

The Senior Court Grandee is qualified for inclusion in the nominating pool for King and Queen.  They must abide by the same eligibility process as a Cavalier where their deeds should demonstrate their participation for selection.

Members of the Court Grandees will be posted on the Krewe of Krazo web site and in the annual Coronation Program.
