Elector and Electress

If you want to adorn yourself with the title of an elector, you can look back on an aristocratic title with a long history. An elector was one of the first seven, later ten princes with the highest rank in the Holy Roman Empire. From the thirteenth century, the electors had the right to vote for the Holy Roman Emperor, also the King of Germany.

Landgrave and Landgravine

Langrave is the title of a prince, and was a rank above a simple count. In the Middle Ages there were various kinds of counts in the Holy Roman Empire, including margraves and palatines, while the landgrave also played a crucial role. Landgraves were held in very high esteem and were on a par with dukes. The typical form of address for a landgrave was Your Highness, though you might not be able to expect people to address you like this nowadays. Nonetheless, being Landgrave or Mrs Landgravine is sure to bring you a certain degree of attention.

Duke and Duchess

Dukes were traditionally military leaders in Germany. The freemen would decide on a duke for the duration of a campaign, by way of a vote between the soldiers. The person’s reputation as well as battle experience were pivotal here.

Prince and Princess

The aristocratic titles of prince and princess are general terms for sovereigns and nobles. Local princes ruled over a specific region, called a principality, and were named princes in an ennoblement ceremony that elevated them to the ranks of the nobility.

Count and Countess

Count and countess are popular and well-known aristocratic titles. In France these were royal officials that exercised the king’s privileges within a certain administrative division, known as a county. The count was to an extent the king or emperor’s representative. A simple count was a noble person, and the rank is related to numerous other aristocratic titles, including landgrave, margrave and palatinate.
