Feudal landholders were entitled to style themselves baron if they were nobles; a roturier (commoner) could only
be a seigneur de la baronnie (lord of the barony).
During the Ancien Régime, French baronies were very much like Scottish ones. Feudal landholders were entitled to
style themselves baron if they were nobles; a roturier (commoner) could only be a seigneur de la baronnie (lord of
the barony). These baronies could be sold freely until 1789 when feudal law was abolished. The title of baron was
assumed as a titre de courtoisie by many nobles, whether members of the Nobles of the Robe or cadets of Nobles of
the Sword who held no title in their own right. Emperor Napoléon created a new empire nobility, in which baron was
the second lowest title. The titles followed a male-only line of descent and could not be purchased. In 1815, King
Louis XVIII created a new peerage system based on the British model. Baron-peer was the lowest title, but the heirs
to pre-1789 barons could remain barons, as could the elder sons of viscount-peers and younger sons of count-peers.
This peerage system was abolished in 1848.
The holder of an allodial (i.e., suzerain-free) barony was thus called a Free Lord, or Freiherr.
