Aims and Scope
Focusing on the singular 14th century career of William, Prince of Jülich and Earl of Cambridge, this study compares how individuals rose to the rank of prince in the Holy Roman Empire and England. The analysis reveals how rank was identified, how social differences between noble ranks were practiced, and the prevailing images of the roles of Emperor and King in each political and social system.
