Hrabiowie

Counts

 Hrabia - tytuł niektórych rodzin szlacheckich, nadawany im przez monarchów; pośredni między baronem a księciem. Słowo to pochodzi od wyrazu niemieckiego "graf", z czego utworzył się naprzód "grabia", a potem "hrabia". Hrabia niemiecki (comes) był pierwotnie urzędnikiem królewskim nad obwodem kraju, zwanym dlatego hrabstwem. Później nazwa ta przywiązała się do ziemi (t.j. do tego obwodu) i kto ją posiadał przez nadanie lub dziedzictwo, używał tytułu hrabiego i władzy udzielnej, która wyrobiła się z czasem w hrabstwach. Na początku XIX wieku zniesiono w Niemczech udzielne hrabstwa, pozostaly jednak tytuły hrabiów, jako rodowe godności. W polsce nie było tytułów, wyróżniających szlacheckie rody. Niektóre wszakże rodziny polskie (jak Górkowie, Tarnowscy), otrzymały w XVI wieku tytuł hrabiowski od cesarzy Rzymskich i dlatego nazywano je "hrabiami rzymskiego cesrstwa". Po podziałach otrzymały je w Galicji i Królestwie liczne polskie rodziny, mające w rodzie senatorów (Kasztelanów, wojewodów itp.), tytuł hrabiowski od cesarza. Papież przyznaje tytuł hrabiego papieskiego.

Counts

  The English explanation of meaning is not a translation from polish, only comentaries from "Encyclopedia Brittanica"

 Count - English earl, feminine countessa European title of nobility, ranking in modern times after a marquess or a duke (in countries without marquesses). The Roman comes was originally a household companion of the emperor; under the Franks he was a local commander and judge. The counts were later slowly incorporated into the feudal structure, some becoming subordinate to dukes, although a few countships, such as those of Flanders, Toulouse, and Barcelona, were as great as duchies. The reassertion of royal authority over the feudatories, which took place at different times in the different kingdoms and led to the formation of centralized states of the modern type, meant that the counts as such lost their political authority, though they retained their privileges as members of the nobility.
 

 England

The title of earl (the English equivalent of count, from Danish jarl) was first introduced into England under the Danish king Canute (king of England 1016–35) and thus is the oldest title and rank of English nobles; it was also the highest until as late as 1337, when Edward the Black Prince was created Duke of Cornwall by Edward III.

In early times, earls wielded administrative authority over several counties, but, after the Norman Conquest in 1066, the earl's sphere was restricted to a single county. Later, the territorial association of earldoms was abandoned, and from the 18th century the practice developed of simply adding the grantee's surname, so that besides, for example, the earl of Leicester there may be Earl Temple. Originally the rules of succession to earldoms were those of inheriting fiefs in feudal law; thus, an earldom might pass to a woman, her husband receiving the title in her right. From the later Middle Ages, earldoms were created in which succession was restricted to male heirs. By the 1963 Peerage Act, an earl, in common with other British peers, might, within one year of inheriting his title, renounce it for life; then, during his lifetime, it remains dormant.

 

 France

French counts became vassals of dukes by 900 at the latest; but, as the process of feudalization continued, the counts tended to lose their official character and to become the hereditary lords of little territories. In France this development is already discernible in the 11th century, and with it there grew up the practice of applying the title of count very loosely. By the 12th century any lord of moderate status might style himself count, no less than the great feudatories of Flanders and Toulouse; and even in the 13th, when the organization of the French kingdom became more stable, the title might mean much or comparatively little.

The development of the system of royal bailliages from the beginning of the 13th century onward served to restrict the counts' rights of legislation, judiciary, and private war. Next the counts lost the rights of minting money (in the 16th century). Moreover, gradually the great fiefs were reunited under the French crown, after which they were granted only in apanage (the territory itself being administered as a province of the kingdom); counts simply retained various privileges. Later countships, under the First Empire and the subsequent monarchies and empire, had no territorial significance but were made hereditable in order of primogeniture.

 Germany

Although in Germany the title of count had become hereditary in most cases as early as the 10th century, the counts retained something of an official character rather longer than in France. In the 12th century, however, apparently by the emperor Frederick I Barbarossa, they were given authority to maintain the public peace in the district under their control—an authority that until 1100 had belonged to the dukes. Thenceforward the term countship signified the territory within which the count had powers of life and death.

From the beginning of the 12th century, a number of counts appeared in western Germany taking their titles simply from the castles held by them—with no apparent connection with any official status. In Frederick Barbarossa's time certain freemen of the higher class, such as Vögte or “advocates,” began to style themselves as counts. In the 13th and 14th centuries there are instances of new countships received as fiefs from dukes.

Within the Holy Roman Empire there gradually developed distinctions between ordinary counts and counts of the empire (Reichsgrafen), who became members of the college of counts (Grafenkollegium), a component of the Diet of the empire. After the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806 the counts of the empire were mediatized—i.e., made subject to the sovereigns of the various German states instead of being “immediate” subjects of the emperor alone. The federal Diet, in 1829, however, recognized their right to the special style of Erlaucht (“Illustrious Highness”).

 Italy

With the decay of Carolingian authority, a system of countships based on cities grew up in Italy. Probably none were dependent on dukes; in any event, the ducal title was rare, at least in northern Italy. The rise of communes meant the end of the countship's former significance. However, as a mark of privilege, the title of count was quite liberally bestowed by the popes and other sovereigns of the peninsula well into modern times.

 Spain

In Spain the countship developed under Visigothic influence in the kingdom of Asturias-León and under Frankish influence in Catalonia and in the country immediately south of the Pyrenees. By uniting the Catalan countships, the counts of Barcelona made themselves into practically sovereign princes, comparable at least to the counts of Flanders and Toulouse; and the Carolingian countship of Aragon was the nucleus of the kingdom of that name. The countship of Castile, on the other hand, from which the kingdom of Castile emerged, was originally a frontier district of the kingdom of Asturias-León. In the latter kingdom the official character of the counts as district administrators appointed by the kings was preserved until the end of the 11th century, when the principle of hereditary lordships of one sort or another began to prevail. Under the Spanish monarchies of the Renaissance and later, the title of count was infrequently conferred.

 Russia and Poland

In Russia, where the title of count was not introduced until Peter the Great's time, it came to be given usually to officials of a certain rank in the government service. In Poland there were no counts before the partitions of the late 18th century, when the title was introduced by the Russians, Austrians, and Prussians
