Nobiliary law - what is it?

Nobiliary law - what is it? by Jan-Olov von Wowern

I have elsewhere defined nobiliary law as "national legislation, or international or national customs, regulating nobiliary issues. In many cases this is not codified, but rather a set of rules and traditions having gained acceptance" (see my book at

Examples of some ofrepparttar more important issues regulated by nobiliary law are:

- claims to nobility (surname, coat of arms, title) by non-noble persons. This could, but must not, include: children with one or two noble parents but born out of wedlock; stepchildren to noble parents; children to a noble lady in an agnatic family, etc.

- claims to nobility by noble persons, whererepparttar 143560 claims cannot be automatically verified. This could be e.g.repparttar 143561 inheritance of a noble title in a junior line ofrepparttar 143562 family whenrepparttar 143563 senior line becomes extinct.

- borderline cases, such as which amongrepparttar 143564 ancient patrician families were, and were not, to be numbered amongrepparttar 143565 nobility. Orrepparttar 143566 reactivation of a family's nobility after some time of voluntary or involuntary loss of nobility (usually because one or all ofrepparttar 143567 nobiliary qualities has not been used for two or more generations).

-repparttar 143568 naturalisation of foreign nobility, that isrepparttar 143569 assimilation of immigrant nobility intorepparttar 143570 domestic nobility, usually withrepparttar 143571 purpose of ensuringrepparttar 143572 foreign nobilityrepparttar 143573 same privileges asrepparttar 143574 domestic.

- heraldry, and more specificallyrepparttar 143575 use of certain symbols usually reserved forrepparttar 143576 nobility, such as coronets of nobiliary rank,repparttar 143577 use of supporters, etc. Also marshalling of arms, that isrepparttar 143578 proper combination of two or more coats of arms due to marriage between two noble families, and similar issues may be regulated.
