Why was the title changed from Shards of a Shattered Crown to Shards of a Broken Crown

I think it's going to be Broken. My editor didn't like the alliteration and "Broken" also seems a little more in keeping with what I see being the political reality. The Kingdom's broken, not shattered. The east is still in good shape, and the west would be quickly regained if they didn't have all those pesky neighbors to the south and east and north.
