Duke

Duke

The fifth level of noble rank (Soc F) is the duke, associated with a subsector or sector. The noble is referred to by their title followed by "of" and then the subsector or sector name (for example, Duke of Regina). The power of the duke depends on circumstances and the situation within the sector, but generally one duke within a sector rises to power and comes to be the Sector Duke, who is the ruler that sector. An individual accorded a duchy may receive a fief of land on a single world, generally not more than 100,000 square km. Ref: SUPP-11, 1107; MT-ENCYC, 1120
