Aristocracy is a form of government in which power is vested in

a minority consisting of those believed to be the best qualified.

(Webster's 17th ed) The more common use is that the aristocracy is

the class of people who are wealthy and who own the land. In

England, Parliament includes a House of Lords, which traditionally

included wealthy men who had inherited titles of nobility.
