Managed By: Icon Here World Monarchs
Description:
Category of Statues (Bust or Full Body) of those people that have been Monarchs of an area of land (Country or Empire).
Expanded Description:

To be listed in this Category, the person must have an official title as defined below, or one that is comparible/equivalent on an International level.

There must be a Statue or Bust of this person at the site, a plaque is not enough.

Here is the Monarch Rankings that will be used

  1. Emperor / Empress
  2. King /Queen
  3. Grand Duke or Prince / Grand Duchess or Princess
  4. Arch Duke / Arch Duchess
  5. Prince / Princess
  6. Duke / Duchess
  7. Marquess / Marchioness
  8. Earl or Count / Countess
  9. Viscount/ Viscountess
  10. Baron / Baroness or Baronet / Baronetess or Knight
  • These levels determined from this site Royal and Noble Ranks, and this site lists the other variations used across Europe. A list of comparative versions for Middle East and the Orient will be created as well.

    Now, obviously non-English lands will not have used the same titles as English lands, so the Rank and Name would use the indigenous rank (i.e. Marquis de Sade of France - not Marquess) so the equivalent would apply.
