A Peer is defined in Imperial Law as a member of the Imperial Nobility created with the rank of Baron or higher by the Emperor. Baronets created by the Emperor (as opposed to an Archduke) as a Landed Baronet are accorded voting rights in the Moot though not normally otherwise being considered Peers. Archdukes are occasionally granted the privilege of creating Barons for their own needs - such Barons rank with but behind Imperial Barons, but are normally considered Peers. [1]

Peers accused of Treason may only be tried in the Imperial High Court.
