  Byzantine aristocracy and bureaucracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Byzantine Empire had a complex system of aristocracy and bureaucracy.
The Byzantines reserved the term "basileus" among Christian rulers exclusively for the emperor in Constantinople, and referred to Western European kings as "rigas", a Hellenized form of the Latin word "rex" (=king).
The Byzantines also had aristocratic titles for lesser members of the royal family and lesser nobles, adopted from Latin terms and somewhat equivalent to the similar terms in Western Europe (derived from the same Latin terms).
