Burgrave (or burgraff, in German) is the English term for a German noble and hereditary title, dating to the 11th and 12th centuries. It originally referred to the ruler of a castle or fortified town (a burg, in German), but over the centuries the title has grown in prominence to that of quasi-princely status.
