authors with aristocracic title

Considering Monsieur le Baron de Saint Joseph :

some years ago , people enjoying an aristocratic title ("titre de
noblesse royale, d'Empire ou papale") arriving in some official reception
at the Palais de l'Elysee (where the French President of the Republic
"lives") was announcing as "Monsieur le Baron, Madame la Marquise, Son
Altesse Serenissime, and so on...". Since around 2 decades (as Valery
Giscard d'Estaing, who is not an aristocrat!)  was President de la
Republique such presentations are non longer utilized! 

So I suggest, concerning my compatriot to discard "le Baron" pour A. de
SAINT JOSEPH (in any case "de" could be write as "DE"). For other reasons,
it's different for DE GAULLE, but he was not polychaetologist, so no
matter of trouble! As I'm not very fluent in Italian, I cannot be sure of
the fact that DALLA Torre or DELLE Chiaje have an aristocratic
signification (von Dalla Torre may be get his von, from the Austrian
Emperor !) . Our Italian Colleagues have probably clarified this problem!

The best to you all Polychaetologists
