Territorial Nobility

Territorial Nobility or Landed Nobility is a slightly bizarre SCAism made neccessary by the fact that the SCA uses the same title for different offices or positions.

The most common distinction which sometimes needs to be drawn is between that of Landed Barons and Court Barons. (See Baron for more detail.)

Another distinction which is sometimes important to make is the distinction between a Crown Prince and a Prince Regnant. (See Prince for more detail.)

Naturally, Kings and Queens are also landed nobility.

A comparison with the term landed gentry might be instructive.
