Out of boredom I used tables A Mate made for Dnd to generate a domain and it resulted in A Small Earldom that's made up of 6 Very Large Baronies that's ruled by A Minor Earl
But that makes no sense. I mean A domain that's made of 6 very large Baronies would be bigger, and likely a lot bigger, then A Small Earldom and the rulers title whould be higher, and likely a lot higher, then Minor Earl but that’s what the rolls say so that’s what my characters family is stuck with

If you wanted to make this work, maybe the Earldom is essentially a sort of Washington DC, a theoretically independent capital, where the Baronies come together to hold council. As the hosting region, they have developed considerable political influence, including treaty responsibilities among the loosely allied Baronies. As a result, they effectively rule the entire domain, but they need to be careful not to outstretch their leverage
