Just Some Common Sense started this petition to Washington State Senate and

The Titles of Nobility Amendment is a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution. The 11th Congress passed it on May 1, 1810, and submitted to the state legislatures for ratification. It would strip United States citizenship from any citizen who accepted a title of nobility from an "emperor, king, prince or foreign power." On two occasions between 1812 and 1816, it was within two states of the number needed to become part of the Constitution. Congress did not set a time limit for its ratification, so the amendment is still pending before the states. Ratification by an additional 26 states is now needed for its adoption.

Although, it was within one state or may have actually had enough states to have been ratified several times it was taking place during a period of rapid growth and new statehoods being granted in the US so as states that existed ratified the amendment there were also new states joining the US that then changed the number required for ratification.

This proposed amendment in 1810 was seen to be needed due foreign politics to amplify both Article I, Section 9, Clause 8, which prohibits the federal government from issuing titles of nobility or honor, and Section 10, Clause 1, which prohibits the states from issuing them.  There were many years of arguments over whether the Amendment actually had been ratified, at the time but the required number of states, any of the foreign politics that at raised the need for the Amendment, especially with Britian and France, many of those issues had resolved themselves and there became less worry about having US Citizens being granted titles and returning to the US and using such titles politically.  Since there was no time limit set by Congress when the Amendment was passed, its as valid as it was on May 10, 1810 2hen Congress passed it,

It may be very well that it was not given a time limit in which it had to be ratified and that may actually have been forward thinking of the Congress that passed the Amendment that at sometime foreign affaires, and foreign entitles would grant US Citizens titles on Nobility to be used against the US at some point.  Now that we have an occasion where a US Citizen has been granted a Title of Nobility which is being used for financial and political purposes in the US, especially as this person has made it known that she intents to run for the Presidency in the future, and the Prince she is married to has already attacked our US Constitution for the freedoms it says we have by rights granted by powers much greater than his or his Monarch, it appears that we need to push for ratification of this Amendment so as to not fall back under the thumb of foreign nobility wishing to remove or block rights given to us by powers much greater than theirs.  Over 200 years ago we had to fight to be allowed these rights granted by a much greater power than these nobles and we should not be placed in a position where now we face them using their titles to destroy the foundations this country was built upon.
