Noble ruler of Albiero
« on: 02 September 2019, 04:59:10 »
This is a bit of an old one as it concerns the original House Kurita sourcebook.

Is the noble ruler of Albiero a Duke as stated on page 176 or an Earl as stated on page 180?

Theres no way to know for certain given its such an old issue. No other canon source appears to mention Hogo Manati by the title of Earl or Duke outwith House Kurita, and that only has a single reference with each title. Mostly he's referred to as being a Prefect, although the 20 Year Update calls him Tai-sho.

House Kurita does mention each district is ruled by a Duke, whereas the planets are ruled by a Planetary Chairman. As he's only the ruler of the Alberio Prefecture - not a district - then he perhaps ought to be just an Earl. However, P176 does mention his family have ruled the prefecture since its creation - so 600 odd years - so its possible that his family could have risen to being Dukes in that time. There are certainly other Dukes that are mentioned, that aren't district rulers for example.
