Comte (French: [kɔ̃t], Catalan: [ˈkɔmtə], Occitan: [ˈkɔmte]) is a title of Catalan, Occitan and French nobility. In the English language, the title is equivalent to count, a rank in several European nobilities. The corresponding rank in England is earl. A comte ranks below a marquis or margrave (the French have two equivalent words for the same title) and above a vicomte (viscomte in Catalan and Occitan, "viscount").
