Congratulations, you've enlisted the driving force of the entire evolutionary history of life in the service of motivating these lesser nobles to rebel and declare themselves independent monarchs.

At best these people don't have much reason to care about the long term future of their areas of responsibility, which tosses out one of the few advantages of aristocratic governments.
