Marquis

The third level of noble rank (Soc D) is the marquis, a noble associated with a single world. The title consists of the world name after the title, as in the Marquis of Aramis (or alternatively, the Marquis Aramis). An individual accorded a marquisate may receive a fief of land on a single world, generally not more than 1,000 square km.
