How to use "Baronage" in context?

To some people, the word "baronage" may conjure up images of a centuries-old aristocracy with vast estates and grand manors. Baronage, however, is actually a relatively recent form of nobility, first appearing in Europe in the 12th century. Today, Baronage refers to a limited number of hereditary titles bestowed on certain individuals by a monarch or head of state.

The Baronetage of the United Kingdom is the most extensive and senior type of Baronage. Baronets are appointed by the monarch on the recommendation of the Prime Minister and are members of the House of Lords.
