Of Duke, Earl and Baron

In Books on 8 July, 2006 at 3:00 pm

As my favorite type of books is often of the fantasy genre, I have always wondered about the ranking order of the various nobility titles, which were used frequently in books about socerey, dragons and what not.  This is what I have gathered:

  • King (Royal family)
  • Prince (Royal family)
  • Duke
  • Marquess
  • Earl/Count
  • Viscount
  • Baron
  • Baronet

These are ranks of  the civilian:

  • Knight
  • Squire
  • Page
