Dar the King isn't that much different from Dar the Chief. Ernaldans have Orendana the Queen. Besides which "We are all reasonable people, we don't need lawyers and arguments to resolve this issue". Showy trials are for the silly menfolk. Agreements are far more often made behind the scenes and presented as a best for everyone compromises.
I don't think the Rinliddi come from an Ernaldan base at all. I see their women as part of the Sun/Sky tradition rather than Earth. Darsani is an Earth tradition but may have little in common with the Ernaldan one.
