    Etymology: [Sp. grande. See Grand.]


  1. Grandee

    Grandee is the word used to render in English the Iberian high aristocratic title or rank of Grande, used by the Spanish nobility, Portuguese nobility and Brazilian nobility. The rank was a rough equivalent of the Peerage of England or Peerage of France, and carried — increasingly as time went on — certain personal privileges, but the Grandees had no powers as a group. It can refer to other people of a somewhat comparable, exalted position, roughly synonymous with magnate; a formal upper level of the nobility. By extension the term can refer informally to any important person of high status, particularly a wealthy, land owning, long-time resident in an area. The term is often used in the United Kingdom to refer to influential members of long-standing in the Conservative Party and Liberal Democrats.
