  • I say, Minstrel, this is fun!

    Her Exalted Highness Duchess Olivia the Woebegone of Burton-le-Coggles

    Don't particularly like duchesses, so please don't call me "your grace". M'lady will do for now.

    Burton-le-Coggles. *snigger*
    Actually I know towns like that in the east of England.

    I dunno...that second one sounds a bit too, shall we say, off-color to be an aristocratic title.

    Then again, it seems like aristocrats throughout history have been rather obsessed with the carnal sphere, so it might be appropriate!

    Why would I want to stop you, your m'ladyness? You're on a roll! out an ignorant yank, would you? Just how many titles of respect are there, and what ranks do they pertain to?

  • His Noble Excellency Pandabonium the Simple of New Porton Wells.

    Simple, that's me, or should that be simpleton?

    New Proton Wells is OK, but I always liked the name of the town in Bedfordshire (north of London) called "Biggleswade".

    It's home to the magnificent Shuttleworth Collection aircraft museum.

  • That begs the question:

    "Which came first, Biggleswade, or Group Captain Biggles?"

    (cue Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick")

  • Ooh I used to know all this. Let's see...

    Titles (with form of spoken address, as written is again a bit different, blah blah)

    King & Queen (Your majesty)
    Prince & Princess (Your highness)
    Duke & Duchess (Your grace)
    Marquess & Marchioness (my Lord/Lady)
    Earl & Countess (My Lord/Lady)
    Viscount & Viscountess (Your Lordship/Ladyship)
    Baron & Baroness (Sir/Lady)
    Knight or Dame (Sir/Dame, but not hereditary)

    I think that's about it...*yawn*
