Dukes, Counts, Barons and stuff
yes, there are still Dukes, (like the Duke of kent)
dutches and dutchesses, (like the dutchy of cornwall).
barrones and barronesses, (like Barroness thatcher)
there are no counts...
there are still earls and countesses (earl of windsor)
the reason that there are no counts is because that word is not british, britain has earls instead of counts.
I'd rather have a royal family than ont, simply because it generates tourist money. fair enough the royals are paid to live quite well... but they generate a hell of a lot of money from tourists just being a living tourist atraction.
