"Earl" in context

Earl is a noble title of British nobility, ranking beneath a marquess and above a viscount. The title of earl is generally thought to have been introduced in England during the 8th Century. Earls were given large pieces of land, known as earldoms, from which they drew income and held a significant amount of power within their regions. Earls also had the right to create their own laws for their lands and to administer justice there.

Though earls were initially considered a higher rank than that of a baron, this changed over the centuries, with earls and barons eventually coming to be viewed as equal.
