In response to French titles of nobility? , written by Marie Bernadette on December 30, 1997 at 19:07:38
Do you, or anybody else, know about French titles of nobility. Do they have basically the same titles in the same order. I know they have castellans and marquis and marquise for marquess and marchioness, but I am not sure of the rest.
I am no authority on the subject, but I believe that they are basically the same.
Duc/Duchesse = Duke/Duchess
Comte/Comtesse = Earl/Countess
Vicomte/Vicomtesse = Viscount/Viscountess
I am unsure of the lesser titles.
