What is a Viscount in Bridgerton

Viscount is a title used by nobles of varying status. A Viscount ranks above a Baron but below an Earl.

Viscount is the fourth rank in the British peerage system.

A British viscount is addressed as “Lord” and a viscountess as “Lady.”

A viscount was historically not a hereditary title and often referred to a person with an administrative or judicial position, but later it became a hereditary title.
