Excerpt from Account of Some of the Lines of the Princes of the Blood of the House of France

The feudal nobility of France consisted of six classes: dukes, marquesses, counts, viscounts, barons, and chatelains.

Under the first races of sovereigns the offices of duke, marquess, and count were held by those to whom the King delegated authority in places at a distance from the court; dukes were charged with the government of provinces and had jurisdiction over a certain number of marquesses and counts; marquesses had charge of the frontiers, and counts of towns.

An edict of Charles IX. of 1566, provided that in all new creations of duchies, marquisates, and counties they should on failure of male issue revert to the crown; this provision of the edict, however, soon became a dead letter, as already in 1571 it was customary to insert in the letters a waiver of the forfeiture.
