Intermediate between the first and second level of noble rank is the baronet. This is a special form of baron awarded by an archduke. The Emperor can create baronets (either as Emperor or in his capacity as Archduke of Sylea); in practice, they are only created by one of the Archdukes.

They rank below barons in seniority and precedence, and do not generally receive fiefs of land. A baronetcy entitles the individual to use the prefix Baronet before one's name.
