Nobody:

Me: On a side note, this word comitem (comes, comitis) is the word from which the English word count (as a title of nobility, equivalent to the more autochthonous earl) derives ultimately, through the French comte, as well as its cognates in other languages (conde ES & PT, conte IT, comte CAT, etc.).
