Ostentation and Viscount

Two words that I’ve learned in the 10th episode of the first season of Forever. Due to my curiosity, I learned more. Viscount is the rank before Earl, but after a Baron. Then there’s another noble rank called Marquees or Marquis, then the highest one is a Duke. Nobility is different from Royalty, but that’s another page.

Ostentation on the other hand is defined as something boastful, showy, or just plain bragging in an obvious way. It’s a noun that shows that you are rich. Wait lemme check the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Oh there it is! Ostentation is an unnecessary display of wealth, knowledge, etc., that is done to attract attention, admiration, or envy
