The Duke (or Duchess) is the next step up from a Count. Your county becomes a duchy after satisfying certain requirements and meeting with the liaison; once the liaison leaves the map, your Count will be promoted. As with the upgrade to a County, this is automatic and cannot be rejected.
 Requirements (v0.44.11+)
Nobility status is entirely based on the number of off-site holdings now. Currently 1 (Baron), 4 (Count), 9 (Duke), (and 9+n*2 for modded higher ranks). The land holder trigger numbers now influence the rate at which your civilization will send out settlers to found new sites near your fortress. If you fortress is inaccessible or your civ's population is really low, they won't be able to do it.
 Requirements (v0.44.10-)
- Have a caravan leave when your population is 20 or more
- Exported 30k wealth
- Created 300k wealth (imported wealth does not count)
