Anuire » Title » Viscount
Viscount (feminine: Viscountess) is a title among the Anuireans which literally means "deputy count". When some cities began to grow to rival provinces in wealth and power, their Lords became rivals of provincial Counts. This title was created to elevate such nobles above their lordly peers, and yet keep them below the provincial count, even suggesting that as deputies, they were specifically to assist the count. The title has come to mean someone just below a count.
A Viscount's realm is generally referred to as a viscounty.
