Move Page Edit

Orlais is an empire, is ruled by an Emperor/Empress, and headed by an Imperial House, there is no royalty in Orlais. Royalty referes to members of the ruling house of a kingdom. Royal and Imperial refer to similair things but are not the same. I propose the page be moved to Orlesian imperiality and nobility based on that.--Swampshade (talk) 18:22, February 27, 2015 (UTC)

I think as a rule we consider the rulers of countries or city states as royalty, for example Archons, Viscounts, princes, and emperors. Also, Orlais had kings before emperors, but when Kordilius Drakon expanded the country significantly, he established himself as an emperor. But I guess Orlais is still a kingdom. Also, an example from real life. The king and queen of England were still royalty when in charge of the British Empire, and the country remained a kingdom.

As there was no consensus to rename the page, I'e close the move proposal as unsuccessful. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 02:23, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Former Emperor Pictures Edit

Are we sure the names on the associated images of previous rulers are correct? Because I distinctly remember looking at them during wicked eyes and hearts and some of the names not matching up. -Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 01:44, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Count and Countesse Edit

I am not very versed in the Orlesian lore, so I could use some guidance here. I can't find any info on Counts and Countesses. They appear several times throughout Inquisition, for example with Lynette Dionne. But I think this is an oversight because the title of Count was retconned to Comte (Fiona's owner in the book was a Count, in Inquisition he's a Comte) and thus I think any Count/Countess is actually Comte/Comtess.
