The social structure of European society was based on the class system. This is particularly true during the middle ages when you had rulers and other upper-class individuals who held titles to distinguish themselves from the rest of the population.

During the 18th century, the upper class gained titles through either birth or through marriage. They would also receive a title if they performed exceptionally well for their monarch and their country.
