Re: British titles

If I remember correctly, the British Peerage Titles are, in descending order:
What is the difference in the titles of Marquis, Earl, and Duke? Some countries have Counts.
Dukes are the highest title in the UK peerages, marquesses immediately after them, and then earls immediately after marquesses. That’s it.
The wives are earls are countesses; in other languages ‘earl’ would be rendered into the same word for ‘count’.
