Landed Nobility


“Landed” Nobility are individuals who hold certain lands in fief to the Crown, swear fealty to the Crown, serve as local representatives of the Crown, and advise the Crown of the will of the local Populace. While the majority of Landed Nobility has been a married Baron/Baroness combination, there is no stricture against any pairing combination, and in some cases, a single individual has served alone.

Serving as Landed Nobility

Our Landed Nobility serves for several years. When it is time to resign the duties of their position (a personal decision, not a regulated one), an official announcement is made. New candidates apply and submit a letter of intent to the Crown for review. A polling (vote) of the Populace occurs, to provide additional information to the Crown regarding the will of the Populace. The Crown then schedules in-person interviews with all candidates, and soon after, a selection is announced.

Accepting this position is a serious commitment, and if you are considering it for the future, it is wise to seek counsel from those who have gone before. A very brief description of the responsibilities of the position follows, but is a broad description that belies the full experience.
