Barons are nobles who hold land directly from the King but are not Dukes. They are subject to royal law and royal command but not to the laws or commands of any other noble, including the Dukes. Thus, a barony is legally independent of the dukedom in which it is found. There are not many barons in Bretonnia. (Note that nobles who hold land from Louen in his capacity as Duke of Couronne are not Barons; only those who hold land from him in his capacity of King of Bretonnia have that status.)[1a]
