Nobility - Swiss nobility - Netflix
Switzerland is a confederation of states of which each one has its own history. In the Middle Ages, various Swiss cantons had only families of feudal nobility and some ennobled families abroad. In Switzerland there was a great number of families of dynasties who were vassals of the Holy Roman Empire, of the House of Savoy or of the Kingdom of Burgundy. This diversity prevented the birth of a state with monarchical central authority. In Switzerland, since the 14th century, three modes of nobility can be distinguished (except for particular cases): nobility acquired under the terms of the family right, i.e. by direct line (male and legitimate since the 16th century). nobility resulting from the concession or the recognition of a Sovereign, which can be one monarch or a collective Sovereign. This may be individual, family or collective concession. The Sovereign can also recognize an ennoblement conceded to one of his subjects by a foreign sovereign. Also there exists “reward's ennoblements” conceding only the possession of a title. nobility acquired by integration [For example: Affry in 15th century, Reyff (1577) Pontherose (1443), Vevey (1523), Vandel (1526), Hugues (1544)]. This integration frequently results from a social rise and of one or more alliances with families belonging already to the nobility. Sometimes that was accompanied by the acquisisition of a noble domain (the seigniory of Mézières was bought in 1547 by Jost Freitag who was consequently qualified noble). In Switzerland, where the social classes were closer than in other countries, there is neither misalliance nor loss of nobility due to engaging in manual work or taking up a trade. So the noble Jean Gambach was a manufacturer of scythes in 1442, and the noble Louis de Daguet was a carter at the end of the 18th century. The only cases of loss of nobility were illegitimacy or voluntary renunciation. This last case was met in Fribourg in order to be able to reach the load of banneret; it was in particular the case for some lines of the families Fégely, Gottrau, Reynold, Reyff, etc. Each canton had its own constitution, its currency, its jurisdiction, its habits and customs, its history and so its own nobility.
