Blue bloods in your nation?

Postby Legokiller » Wed Oct 10, 2012 9:24 am

What's the state of blue bloods (nobility descent or a noble) in your nation?

Ever since the Revolution of 1805, many nobles lost their position when the early laws of the Pony Republic of Legokiller abolition nobility privileges and titles of rank. Nonetheless, few of the descendants from noble families still continue to occupy prominent roles in Legokilleran society, notably the Stormberg Family in officer’s position in the Armed Forces and Wintermane Family in high ranks and CEO of Cutie Mark Crusaders Inc. Although other descendants of nobles live in middle class families or some cases poor families.

It should be noted that the President herself is a Blue blood from the Stormberg family.

The Nobility is alive and well in Herador, both higher and lesser nobles are prominent in politics (with all elected officials becoming knights, and Heradorians elected to the leadership of counties are given the title of Baron) and the Heradorian social scene, with the nobility becoming something of a modern "Jet-Set" for the average Heradorian. Heradorians see the "blue bloods" as , for the most part, working members of society, with most male (and sometimes female) nobles serving at least one tour in the military, and a good portion of female nobles volunteer for a charity organization.

Most Ukrainian nobles fled to Estainia and Beusuandille back at the turn of the 20th century after the Revolution of 1902 that saw an end to the Tsardom of Kievan Rus. They're still in the latter as far as we know, and there is a Czar in the greater Ukraine once more. Descended wise, there aren't many left in the Ukraine though they're possible to be found here and there; the Generalissimo of The State of The Ukraine to the west of us is a blue blood in that regard; descended from House Rurik.

We have plenty of alien species with blue blood living in Xekliv, such as the Grath'k. Us Xeklivians have purple blood.

Oh, you mean the nobility type of bluebloodness?

The only "nobility" in Xekliv is the emperor and his family. No one else is allowed such a title.

Oh. At first I thought you meant people with some rare disease that decreases the amount of oxygen-saturated blood in their veins to near zero.

Well, we don't call them 'nobles', we simply call them 'people of royal blood'. They're a quite rare sight in Veceria, but the most famous of them might be our King, David Fenris.

Nobility was abolished in 1804 in Bodobol, although some citizens still pride themselves on being the descendants of nobles. The King/Queen and their family are called the "Royal Family", and their sons and daughters are referred to as "Princes" and "Princesses", but it's really just a name. It doesn't carry any particular power, it just tells people you're the child of the ruler of Bodobol.

Nobility is illegal in all but one province, Imperia. There, all of the former noble families of Urcea now reside in Feudal Lines that have existed for some time. The former Imperial Family is in charge of the Province, with Louis VI Plantagenet-Nero serving as its Prince.

Additionally, the head of the House of Plantagenet-Nero, who would traditionally be the Emperor, being a position of respect (mainly for Julius Nero), is also allowed to maintain his role as the "Grand Duke of Urceopolis", a position and polity which has existed before the foundation of the Urcean nation itself.

Yes we have nobility. Proles can become nobility as well if they do something of great significance. Noble lineage is only carried onto the eldest male a family.

There isn't a 'nobility' but there are great families - usually at the top of the chain in political and corporate holdings.

The “Governers” or each of our counties are all elected from the children of a particular bloodline. Some families resorted to inbreeding to ensure “purity” while others let their kids marry whoever they wanted. Similarly, children of the royal family are allowed to marry whoever they want but are encouraged to pick someone from one of the gubernatorial families (There are at least 64 to choose from, with an average of 3 kids each. Odds are pretty good)

There are multiple families that are classifiable as Noble.
A family that currently has a Conclave Council member can be regarded as such, and there are older established families throughout the region. Though lesser families have -and some currently do- boast Conclave members.
In practice, each Spiral City has a single major family or clan that is regarded as the Noble family. These cities in turn hold the family's name. Thus the city Serafren also holds Clan Serafren, rarely; a city changes it's name due to the Clan falling or being severely overshadowed by another. Perhaps the original family established themselves with a trade presence, spiritual leadership or in later times with military cunning and might. In modern times, they are major landowners and business owners.

The three largest cities: Serafren, Fealen and Yerefren are also the oldest and are generally the most powerful. Thus they are the more.. Noble of Noble families. In the same way a Duke outranks a Baron for example.
Rising and falling in terms of Nobility is a peculiarly measured one, with the citizen's respect, the covert intelligence gathered, trade presence, technology use and recent events all tying into a Clan's status. In addition, Serafren uniquely is the home of the Windmother religion and thus has spiritual presence, as well as holding major archives and academies. Taldao, on the other hand is the current capital; and thus has a larger presence than anticipated on internal and external policy, partially due to it's trade with other Nations and some of the most high-quality -and indeed first- mana stones mines being found there.
