Would you like to become a French Viscount or Viscountess?

A French Viscount, a Vicomte, is an elite title rank introduced to France by Charlemagne in the early Middle Ages and popularised by the second King of France of the Capetian Dynasty, Robert II the Pious.

Like many ranks from the aristocratic hierarchy of Ancient France, this Noble Title and dignity originates from the Early Roman Empire.

The name stems from the Latin word for deputy and as well as being a title held by Roman Imperial officers, the traditional role of a Viscount was that of auxiliary or companion to a Duke or Count, or sometimes even a Marquis. They also used to uphold the authority of noble families.

In Feudal Times, a Viscount would often be a nobleman responsible for the civil and military government of an important border territory within the Empire, and as such, these Noble Titles were often held by significant figures in French history and are highly sought after.
