I have to say it comes from Albanian: me u duk, me u shqu, te jesh i dukshem=to be noticed,distinguished, famous
| seem|| dukem (fprr u duka, dukur)|
A person who is subject of other people sights, for his military/leader qualities in Albanian : DUKET mbi te tjeret, dallon.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
I feel this to be true at all.

Latin dux has its root in ducere meaning to lead. This root goes back to Proto-Indo-European *deuk which means not only to lead but to pull or to draw. Albanian has this root in the word nduk. English retains the word in the words tug and teem. I don't know the etymology of Albanian dukshëm so it may belong with the same root. I just haven't seen any etymologies of that word.
