Titles are an important part of medieval social life, as they show the dignity of a ruler. It is the title that shows at what level of the hierarchical ladder you are.Therefore, I propose to introduce titles into the game. A list of names by country is attached.
1.List of titles
Titles in the Empire:
1. The Emperor. Appeal: Your Grace. The wife is the empress, the son is the crown prince, the daughter is the crown princess.Children, brothers, sisters, and in the male generation - and grandchildren of emperors enjoy the title of Imperial Highnesses, Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses.

Titles of Kuzaites:
1. Khan. Khan's wife - Khatun.Tegin is a title added to the names of men from the clan of the khan, the prince of the blood.Shat (shad) - the title of "prince of blood", but not the heir to the throne.
2. Bey. The clan of the leader in the tribe. Let it be equated to the princely title.
3. Murza is a title of aristocrats who do not belong to the khan's family.
4. Noyons - representatives of the aristocratic nobility.
2. Title inheritance
In Vlandia, Battania, the title holder is not just any member of the clan, but only its head. In these factions, the title is not inherited through the female line.Titles are also inherited by the eldest son (bastards, even legalized ones, cannot inherit the title).
The sons of feudal lords with a title not lower than the count, the title of courtesy (a personal title used as the main way of naming the heirs of titled nobles), the eldest sons and eldest grandchildren repeat one of the younger "subordinate titles", for example, the son of the duke is called the marquis. As a title of courtesy to other family members, the title of lord is used before the first and last name.
The choice of a particular title of courtesy from several minor titles is dictated by family tradition. It can change when a family receives new higher titles or the elimination of senior lines, which were assigned certain secondary titles (the junior line, after suppressing the senior, inherits only a set of titles that had a common ancestor). As a secondary name, a title is chosen, the name of which does not coincide with the most senior title; if the names of the minor titles are the same, the construction of the form "lord + surname" can be used as a courtesy title. If the genus does not have a secondary title, fictitious designations or the construction "lord + surname" are used.
For example, the Duke of Norfolk holds the minor titles Earl of Arundel and Baron of Multravers. Moreover, he is called by the main title - "Duke of Norfolk". The eldest son of the Duke of Norfolk during his father's lifetime is titled "Earl of Arundel, and his eldest son, the eldest grandson of the Duke, may be called" Lord Multravers. "
For the rest of the factions, the title holder is any member of the clan (that is, for example,even the brothers and sisters of the count will be called counts and countesses, respectively), but only in the Empire and Sturgia the title is transferred through the female line (a woman could become something like a "title keeper" in order to transfer the title to her eldest son after herself).
