Anuire » Count

Count (feminine: Countess) is a title among the Anuireans which identifies the ruler of a province. The word comes from the Old Andu word "comes", in its accusative "comitem" meaning "companion", and later "companion of the emperor, delegate of the emperor".

A count is also knows as an earl in northwestern Anuire (Talinie and parts of Boeruine) or eorl areas bordering the Rjurik Highlands (particularly Dhoesone).

A marquis is a count of great power, possibly ruling multiple provinces. A viscount is a lesser count that is responsible for only parts of a province.

The adjective "comital" means "pertaining to a count", e.g. The comital regalia is stored in the castle.

A count's province is generally referred to as a county.
