Royal and Noble Ranks

Royal And Noble Ranks

Traditional rank amongst European royalty, peers, and nobility is rooted in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Although they vary over time and between geographic regions (for example, one region's prince might be equal to another's grand duke), the following is a reasonably comprehensive list that provides information on both general ranks and specific differences.

Famous quotes containing the words ranks, royal and/or noble:

    Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    Not to these shores she came! this other Thrace,
    Environ barbarous to the royal Attic;
    How could her delicate dirge run democratic,
    Delivered in a cloudless boundless public place
    To an inordinate race?
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    He stood, a soldier, to the last right end,
    A perfect patriot and a noble friend,
    But most a virtuous son.
    All offices were done
    By him, so ample, full, and round
    In weight in measure, number, sound,
    As, though his age imperfect might appear,
    His life was of humanity the sphere.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
