A Count is described as an Imperial officer appointed by his superiors, usually the Marquis or Duke, but also sometimes by the Emperor himself, in charge of the functions of governing and administrating a territory in the borders of the Empire. Inevitably, this role also implied taking the military command of the imperial troops in the territory.

French Counts:

The Comte de Vaudreuil.The primitive Frankish Kingdom did not grant noble titles of Count. It was not until the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire and the advent of the Carolingian dynasty in France that the title of Count became common. Since then, the various ruling dynasties in France, i.e., the Carolingian, the Capets, the Valois and the Bourbon awarded the title of Count to those providing services to the state or the Sovereign, exercising this prerogative of grace freely.

Thus, the Count became another estate of the nobility, titled as such, by royal grant generally with a hereditary character. Throughout the tumultuous French nineteenth century, the two Empires and the Houses of Bourbon and Orleans, continued to grant the noble title of Count.
