  1. EXTERNAL LINK: Joel Rigby: Yes, these are my noble titles, awards, and TAS membership from over the years.
  2. EXTERNAL LINK: For the Third Imperium, at least, Traveller speaks of nobles. Who are these nobles? Are they essentially unelected rulers that command entire planets and systems? Pure bloodlines, royalty, and the like? Or is there something more that I am missing? Thanks.
  3. EXTERNAL LINK: Royalty verse nobility: So, in the noble entry I see Emperor / Empress, archduke, prince etc. listed. But if I understand correctly (and I may not), royalty is apart from nobility, save where archdukes are concerned, because they're essentially imperial level "chamberlains" or candidates of a sort for royalty should something happen to the royal family. Do I have that right? And if so, does the nobility entry need to be reworked a little?

Links (2018)[edit]

  1. EXTERNAL LINK: Nobles in the Imperium. Yes, I know the book is "only" GURPS Traveller, but Mr. Wiseman co-authored, so it's a legit reference even if not canon.
  2. EXTERNAL LINK: House Dae Faroth

Links (2017)[edit]

  1. External Link: We know that the Imperium is run as a feudal state by a system of hereditary nobility. We know about the nobles' relationship to one another. My question is, what of their relationship to *the common people*, and vice-versa?

Notes (2016)[edit]

The correct spelling is Viscount, but it is pronounced "VĪ-kount". It derives from Latin "Vice-comes" (= "Vice-count") via French "Viscomte" (pronounced "Vee-KONT").


Notes (2008)[edit]

Are you sure "Vicount" is the correct canonical spelling? The word is generally correctly spelled "Viscount" (or Viscountess), but if it's that way in the source canon then I guess we should leave it be.


The source of this particular bit of Canon is GURPS Traveller: Nobles. Checking the source page (pg 16) it says: You are correct. The spelling should be Viscount. I'll fix the article. Thanks
