Makes no slagging sense, does it?
Neither did Animated. Prime means leader, slagwads.
Of course it doesn't make sense if you apply G1 rules to it. However it isn't G1. So in animated universe Magus is above Prime (since one of Primes meaningsis connected to 1 you could say it means first in line) or to use your example Duke is above King. Now when in their universe please observe and honor their customs and traditions.
Also how do the thirteen primes fit with your theories?
