- I am working on a persona. If my husband is a viceroy, what does that mean in terms of the Italian nobility?

- From what I can gather (from Wikipedia, etc) a Viceroy
is kind of like a landed baron...they are entrusted
with caring for a chunk of land.
"in Italian Viceré: The highest colonial
representatives in the 'federation' of Italian East
Africa (six provinces, each under a governor; together
Ethiopia, Eritrea and Italian Somaliland) were no
longer styled "High Commissioner", but "Viceroy and
Governor-general" from 5 May 1936, when fascist forces
temporarily occupied Ethiopia, until 27 November 1941,
when the last Italian administrator surrendered to the
Allies. The Italian King Victor Emmanuel claimed the
title of "Emperor of Ethiopia" (Nəgusä nägäst,
"King of Kings") and declared himself to be a
successor to the Nəgusä nägäst,
even though Emperor Haile Selassie I continued to hold
this title while in exile, and resumed his actual,
physical throne on 5 May 1941."
Above is the only listing for an Italian Viceroy which
is way post period. It may have been used in Italy
during period, but not a significant enough reference
for Wiki to have a listing yet.
Aside from that, in case no one else explained it to
you, in the SCA, we don't create personas that would
have a title. Any titles, lord/lady, baron(ess),
counte(ess), etc. are earned/come with honors from the
kingdom/society. We are considered "minor nobility" or
some other equivalent meaning we have money and such
but no real titles, except the polite...m'lord and
