OOC: How can I be Jarl of a Viceroyalty?

 

Karl Karlsson,

 

Stormark's previous system of subdivisions had very different types of subdivisions such as thanedoms, colonies, autonomous countries, etc which all very much differed in style.

 

Somewhere in the transition to the current system of subdivisions of Jarldoms and Dominions, it was decided that certain subdivisions such as the Duchy of Port Chloe and the Providence Plantations, the Viceroyalty of Vinland, the Viceroyalty of High Queen Hervör Isle, etc. would keep, while legally becoming Jarldoms, their traditional style for reasons of nostalgia. The person in charge of any such Jarldom, however, would always bear the title of Jarl to prevent any future clashes with titles held by the High King.

That is indeed correct. One of my titles is Duke of Port Chloe and the Providence Plantations. The person in charge of the Duchy of Port Chloe and the Providence Plantations bears the title of Jarl of Port Chloe and the Providence Plantations.

Did Vinland get the style of Viceroyalty because High Queen Sigrid was born there?

 

Yes, it indeed did. That happened a couple of months after she had become High King Harald's Imperial Companion. Before Vinland received the style of Viceroyalty it was known as the Imperial Colony of Vinland.
