  1. This is actually amazingly helpful; it’s so hard to know what one is talking about with all these titles thrown around in various time periods and countries, especially when you’re from a country like the USA where we don’t have any of those titles. I bet comparing the hierarchy of all the different European titles would make an excellent infographic. Thanks for posting this.

    • That would probably be the work of a lifetime for somebody. It gets confusing, because in many cases, the hierarchy wasn’t very well-defined. But if someone did want to spend the time to do it, it would be well-appreciated. Haha.
