- The County Palatine is special in many regards, that will be explained at a later point
- Each County is split up in multiple Shires ruled by a Graf

Knights
- Every shire lord has a multitude of Landed Knights below him

- A Principal Knight can declare Knight Companions when the Prince allows so
- Principal Knights have the right of a sword, a horse and an own coat of arms
- County Knights have the right of a sword and a horse. They bear the Coat of Arms of there Shire Lord
- Knight Companions have the right of a sword. They bear the Coat of Arms of the Knight that declared them and fight on foot (Usually as Men-of-Arms)
- Shire Lords and County Lords also fight as Knights. They are additionally allowed to build their own castles.

Cities
- Cities with stone fortification may be granted a Principal Charter, making them a Free City
- Free Cities have a number of Burghers assigned to them, those may hail from the city directly or the surronding villages (That also belong to the territory of the City)
