Crown barony
A baron is a ruler of the first tier. A ruler who has no title higher than baron rank is unplayable (except the heads of patrician families in great naval republics). Barons control a single holding (known as a barony) within a county; either a castle, a city or a temple. Barons are almost never independent and are usually a vassal of the count who controls the county where the holding is located.

Title variantsEdit

Most male rulers of baron-rank are known as barons, and most female rulers of baron-rank are known as baronesses. There are, however, several cultural/religious variants which are summarised in the table below:

Culture/Religion Male title Female title
Arabic/West African Wâli Wâlia
Turkish Timariot Timariota
Mongol Taishi Baroness
Persian Argbadh Wâlia
Nahua Teuctli Teuctli
Norse Þegn Baroness
Other Pagan Hetman Baroness
Indian Damapati Damapatni

Note: religous title variants 'trump' cultural ones. For example, a ruler of baron-rank with Mongol culture and Tengri Pagan religion will be known as a Hetman.

Similarly, republican rulers of baron-rank are known by different titles. These take precedence over cultural variants.

Culture/Religion Male title Female title
Muslim Wâli None
Others Mayor None

Similarly, theocratic rulers of count-rank are known by different titles. These take precedence over cultural variants.

Culture/Religion Male title Female title
Christian Bishop Bishop
Tengri Pagan Shaman Shaman
Finnish Pagan Shaman Shaman
Norse Pagan Godi Gydja
Other Pagan Priest Priestess
Zoroastrian Herbad Herbad
Jain Nirgrantha Nirgrantha
Hindu Pujari Pujari
Buddhist Bhikkhu Bhikkhu
Others * Baron or cultural variant * Baroness or cultural variant

Finally, baron-rank vassals of holy orders go by the title of Commander.
