Marquess
A MARQUESS (UK : /ˈmɑːrkwɪs/ ; French : _MARQUIS_, ; Italian : _marchese_, Spanish : _marqués_, Portuguese : _marquês_) is a nobleman of hereditary rank in various European peerages and in those of some of their former colonies. The term is also used to translate equivalent Asian styles, as in imperial China and Japan . In the German lands, a Margrave was a ruler of an immediate Imperial territory (examples include the Margrave of Brandenburg , the Margrave of Baden and the Margrave of Bayreuth ), not simply a nobleman like a marquess or marquis in Western and Southern Europe. German rulers did not confer the title of marquis; holders of marquisates in Central Europe were largely associated with the Italian and Spanish crowns

Emperor
An EMPEROR (through Old French _empereor_ from Latin _IMPERATOR _ ) is a monarch , usually the sovereign ruler of an empire or another type of imperial realm. EMPRESS, the female equivalent, may indicate an emperor's wife (_empress consort _), mother (_empress dowager _), or a woman who rules in her own right (_empress regnant _). Emperors are generally recognized to be of a higher honour and rank than kings . In Europe

King
KING is the title given to a male monarch in a variety of contexts. The female equivalent is queen regnant (while the title of queen on its own usually refers to the consort of a king). * In the context of prehistory, antiquity and contemporary indigenous peoples, the title may refer to tribal kingship . Germanic kingship is cognate with Indo-European traditions of tribal rulership (c.f. Indic _rājan _, Gothic _reiks _, and Old Irish _rí _, etc.) * In the context of classical antiquity, king may translate Latin _rex _ or either Greek _archon _ or _basileus _. * In classical European feudalism , the title of _king_ as the ruler of a KINGDOM is understood as the highest rank in the feudal order, potentially subject, at least nominally, only to an emperor (harking back to the client kings of the Roman Empire ). * In a modern context, the title may refer to the ruler of one of a number of modern monarchies (either absolute or constitutional)

Archduke
ARCHDUKE (feminine: ARCHDUCHESS; German: _Erzherzog_, feminine form: _Erzherzogin_) was the title borne from 1358 by the Habsburg rulers of the Archduchy of Austria , and later by all senior members of that dynasty. It denotes a rank within the former Holy Roman Empire (962–1806), which was below that of Emperor and King and above that of (debatably) a Grand Duke, Duke and Prince . The territory ruled by an Archduke or Archduchess was called an Archduchy. All remaining Archduchies ceased to exist in 1918

Grand Prince
The title GRAND PRINCE or GREAT PRINCE ( Latin : _magnus princeps_, Greek : _megas archon_) ranked in honour below king and emperor and above a sovereign prince . Grand duke is the usual and established, though not literal , translation of these terms in English and Romance languages , which do not normally use separate words for a "prince" who reigns as a monarch (e.g., Albert II, Prince of Monaco ) and a "prince" who does not reign, but belongs to a monarch's family (e.g., Prince William, Duke of Cambridge ). German, Dutch, Slavic and Scandinavian languages do use separate words to express this concept, and in those languages _grand prince_ is understood as a distinct title (for a cadet of a dynasty ) from _grand duke_ (hereditary ruler ranking below a king). The title of _grand prince_ was once used for the sovereign of a "grand principality"

Infante
_INFANTE_ (Spanish: , Portuguese: ; f. _INFANTA_), also anglicised as INFANT or translated as PRINCE , is the title and rank given in the Iberian kingdoms of Spain (including the predecessor kingdoms of Aragon , Castile , Navarre and León ), and Portugal , to the sons and daughters (_infantas_) of the king, sometimes with the exception of the heir apparent to the throne who usually bears a unique princely or ducal title. The wife of an _infante_ was accorded the title of _infanta_ if the marriage was dynastically approved (e.g. Princess Alicia of Bourbon-Parma ), although since 1987 this is no longer automatically the case in Spain (e.g. Princess Anne d\'Orléans ). Husbands of born _infantas_ did not obtain the title of _infante_ through marriage (unlike most hereditary titles of Spanish nobility ), although occasionally elevated to that title _de gracia_ ("by grace") at the sovereign's command
