Best Order of Chivalry of All Time

Chivalric orders are orders of knights that were created by European monarchs in imitation of the military orders of the Crusades. After the crusades, the memory of these crusading military orders became idealised and romanticised, resulting in the late medieval notion of chivalry, and is reflected in the Arthurian romances of the time.

Best General election of All Time

The general election type is for elections in which more than one office is being contested (e.g., mayor and sheriff, or an entire legislature). General elections can include other general elections. These included elections can be for different bodies, such as two houses in a bicameral legislature, or can be for general elections at a more local level, so that a national general election might include state or province-level general elections (presuming that they are held at the same time), which might in turn include general elections for local government.Election Contests are for the individual races of a general election; there can be a very large number of these, if necessary. For example, the general election for a legislature with 200 seats in which all seats are up for election might have 200 contests.

Best Noble person of All Time

A Noble person is an individual with state-privileged status who holds a title of nobility. The term originally referred to those who were "known" or "notable" and was applied to the highest social class in pre-modern societies. In the feudal system (in Europe and elsewhere), the nobility were generally those who held a fief, often land or office, under vassalage, i.e., in exchange for allegiance and various, mainly military, services to the Monarch and at lower levels to another nobleman. It rapidly came to be seen as a hereditary caste, sometimes associated with a right to bear a hereditary title and, for example in pre-revolutionary France, enjoying fiscal and other privileges. While noble status formerly conferred significant privileges, today, in most Western countries, noble status is a purely honorary dignity. In the United Kingdom, where some peerage titles, until recently, guaranteed a seat in the Upper House of the Parliament, there are still some residual privileges.Nobility is a historical, social and often legal notion, distinct from socio-economic status which is mainly based on income and possessions. Being wealthy or influential does not automatically make one a noble, nor are all nobles wealthy and influential (aristocratic families have lost their fortunes in various ways, and the concept of the 'poor nobleman' is almost as old as nobility itself).
