Aristocratic CAF - Roll The Dice - 1800

Hello and welcome to my first ‘Roll the Dice’ Style CAF! This one is going to be based off of the English Peerage system and will span 100 years. This will probably take a little while to get finished as there is a lot to explain, but I will do my best and hopefully I’ll not overcomplicate it! If in doubt - this explains the system in more detail

We’ll start with a title…

1 - Duke (Wife is a Duchess)
2 - Marquess (Wife is a Marchioness)
3 - Earl (Wife is a Countess)
4 - Viscount (Wife is a Viscountess)

And then pick a place name from this here

Then pick a surname from here

Now we need a husband and wife…

Children’s Titles

Children of a Duke

All other sons will be titled Lord (Their Name.) If the oldest brother dies, however, the second oldest will inherit the title of Duke. If he dies, the third son will inherit the title and so on. This title cannot be inherited by the holder’s children, and the holder’s wife’s title would be (Wife’s name, Lady (Husband’s given name and surname))

If the Duke has no sons, then the title will go to his closest paternal male relative. It would go to the next eldest brother.
