(Redirected from Countess)
Jump to: navigation, search

A count is a nobleman in most of European countries, equivalent in rank to a British earl, whose wife is also still a "countess" (for lack of an Anglo-Saxon term). The word count comes from French comte.

A woman having this title or the wife of a count is called countess.
