Quote #10

ARMADO: I will kiss thy royal finger, and take leave. I am a votary: I have vow'd to Jaquenetta to hold the plough for her sweet love three year. (5.2.396)

Well, the lords got off easy compared to what they would have endured according to the King's original oath. Here we see that Armado's committed to three years, as opposed to just one. And he has to become a farmer. Both conditions are minor when compared to the original pact the men made.
