A baron is a title of the English nobility, it is the lowest rank of the peerage. It is also used in Germany and Austria. Originally it was the title of the King's companions in Anglo-Saxon times. It then became the title of the holders of large estates 'baronies', who advised the King. Since the 16th century it has been one of the several ranks of English nobleman, above a baronet and below a viscount. A baron is entitled to be called 'Lord'.

During his lifetime he was called (in Germany) "Der Rote Kampfflieger," which translates literally as "The Red Battle Flyer".However, in English he's much better known as "The Red Baron," and even in Germany he's usually referred to today as "Der Rote Baron."The title he actually used was Freiherr, but Freiherr (literally "Free Lord") and Baron are essentially equivalent (there have at times been technical differences in the two ranks, but they're both commonly translated into English as "Baron") and Freiherren are sometimes addressed as Baron even in Germany).But at the first time the name "Red Baron" was used not until after the war. During the war he was known as Le pétit rouge or Le diable rouge.
