  Landgrave \Land"grave`\, n. [G. landgraf; land land + graf earl,
     count; cf. D. landgraaf, F. landgrave.]
     A German nobleman of a rank corresponding to that of an earl
     in England and of a count in France.
     [1913 Webster]
     Note: The title was first adopted by some German counts in
           the twelfth century, to distinguish themselves from the
           inferior counts under their jurisdiction. Three of them
           were princes of the empire.
           [1913 Webster]
