Well Pim, may i first say, as i have read through this whole forum, you are very knowledgeable on this subject and i commend you for it :D
When i was growing up my mother had always told me that she would love for my title to be Provence, because it is where i was born and where i spent the first two years of my life. Secondly my mothers side of the family has lived there since 1807. Provence as a region means so much to me that I thought i should make my avatar name such. I am well aware that Provence was not of sound mind, but i feel most of these things we hear negative about him are just court gossip etc. I feel it was jealousy towarss his brother, not only because he was king but also because his wife did not resemble a dog. (comtess de Provence.)

However, my title would have been Provence, had the Provence couple bore children. :/ oh well.

I can understand you: Provence is a gorgeous region. I've been there just once, but I still remember the colours of the fields full of flowers...

My understanding is, Comte, that your title would be purely ceremonial in modern day France. Is the attraction purely a badge of family pride and honour, a link to your heritage?

youre quite right delicate fleur, its basically now just an add-on last name. No special favors are rewarded, however some amounts of money are received as inheiritance, and of course a chateau :]
Yes, i myself see no comparison to the former Monsieur in anyway.
:]
excellent question.
