Could it be King David's Spaceship, published in paperback in 1980 but originally serialised in Analog in three parts as A Spaceship for the King, by Jerry Pournelle and part of his Co-Dominion series?

I have the paperback book somewhere in the house but I'd never be able to find it. There are two planets involved, Prince Samual's World and Makassar but I don't remember a court jester or a military medal order called spire so maybe not.
