Court acts affecting titles or orders of Knighthood & Decorations are rare. They may be announced in the Biffeche Court Circular issued from time to time as needed.

Note that "Chief" or "Chef de Village" is strictly an administrative title, and no longer has any noble connotation (by itself) in Biffeche. One village chief now also has the hereditary title of Baron. The law governing the descent of noble titles depends on the words in the original grant; it may specify descent in the male line, the female line, to oldest or youngest, or by any other method. If it is unspecified, then descent is to the oldest in the male line if the original holder was male. Tanistry is unknown in Biffeche. A Prince or Princess of the House of Schafer who has no other title is not able to pass the title to the next generation without further act of the King.

The King may appoint a temporary or permanent Seneschal at any time; while in power, a Seneschal ranks between Baron and Seigneur.

Please Note
Our beloved King comes from a Scottish family that have held lands in the Kingdom of Scotland since at least the year 990 ce. The Feudal System of landholding ended in the United Kingdom 28 November 2004. Prior to this King Ronald I petitioned to have some of his Scottish holdings transferred to His children. Hugh Peskett stated that just before the law changed, Queen Elisabeth II said “That nice young Ronnie, wants to do this for His children….We shall allow it”.
