Marquess

The word Marquess comes from the Latin "marginem" meaning margin, edge, boundary, border. Marquesses protected the borders for the King and were given the autonomy to do so. In England there were several Marches: The Northern March comprising Western March: Cumberland and Westmoreland (now Cumbria), and the Eastern March: Northumbria, the Welsh March: Cheshire (subsequently a Palatinate), Herefordshire, Shropshire (originally Shrewsburyshire), Gloucestershire, and the Southern March: Somersetshire and Devonshire. Over time the Marches became less dangerous and Marquessates became fewer. The first female Marquess, or Marchioness, was Anne Boleyn.
