Trope description is a mess, conducting a micro-analysis of how various common and obscure titles are treated in fiction ("you should break out in a cold sweat when you meet a Viscount"). Worse, examples are grouped by title, so there's a folder for how kings and queens are depicted in various media, dukes, earls and countesses, each with their own folder. I propose gutting and rewriting the description to something broader, and grouping all the examples by media regardless of what noble title is in question. EDIT: Nearly 48 hours and this has been neither discarded nor opened for discussion. NVM, I'll rewrite the trope myself.

Editor of PostsI agree with the proposition. Most of these titles aren't really about actual noble titles and their place in the feudal system as much as just having a title that sounds cool and aristocratic.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
