A Castellan is a noble with responsibility for a major castle, which is usually held by his feudal superior. He has full authority over the castle and its lands unless his lord is present.[1a]

Some Castellans are responsible for the overall defence and fortification of their Dukedom, bearing titles such as Castellan of Bastonne and Castellan of Quenelles. These Castellans are afforded a much greater degree of power, with lesser Castellans and Marquises owing their direct allegiance.[2][3]
