Someone is actually offering this:

I don't know it it has legal standing but you do get a nifty certificate to hang on your wall.

For that price I think I'll make my own nifty certificate!  We already have land (technically known as 'the garden'),  so we're sorted  Smiley.

A thought has just occurred to me ... can I interest anyone in a square foot of grass and a nice looking piece of paper to go with it?  Cheesy Cheesy

Selling off extinct titles, or active ones for that matter, is a long, established tradition - with this type of title you don't get anything other than the name - no sitting in the House of Lords! Mind you, if it came with it's own little island, I might be tempted!!

They are offering "Lordship Titles" and "Ladyship Titles" and were established in 2020, so I would expect this lot has a strong whiff of 'scam', or, at least, 'rip-off' all over it!

It does, doesn't it! Accompanied by nice Highland pictures, too!

Each Lady Title Pack includes:

A dedicated plot of land measuring 1 square foot or 5 square feet.
A personalized title certificate with your name or the name of the title holder.
A unique plot number that will be assigned to the title holder.
Your digital certificate will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

Ditto for the Lordship Title Pack

So... Lord of where? If I am to be called Lord... (insert location here) what exactly do I write?  "I am Lord Stone, I rule over this boulder and the grass which grows underneath."

So, d'ya think I should try selling a few square feet of AZ desert --- to include a very dry parch(ed)ment certificate--- of what my brother in the midwest describes as "thousands of square miles of kitty litter"?
