Discussion thread for Marquis.
I take it that we're using a completely different marquis to either the British or French versions? The British title is very high-ranking, second-only to a duke, whereas in the French system the title was devalued so much that it was ranked only slightly higher than a baron and less than a viscomte.

The standard order of French titles is
Aside from not including the petty princes, and calling seigneurs lords, the rank order is the same as British.
Just as vicomte is an under-count, marquis is an over-count. It seems reasonable to base the marquis on the position of count and step up.
I'm not sure where the confusion rests.
