The Channel Islands are divided into a number of 'fiefs - ancient feudal districts under the control of a Seigneur, who is in many ways similar to English Lords of the Manor. Today the Seigneurs have lost all their powers, although some are still associated with ancient customs relating to their ultimate "lord", the English monarch.
