The Duke of Joos is an office first established upon the conquest of the island of Joos by the expanding Maurestani Empire, in 70AP. Prior to that, Joos was ruled from 128BP until 70AP by the governors of Samuelonia's Gius Island colony.

Under the Empire of Maurestania, the Duchy of Joos had varying degrees of autonomy, despite being officially a part of the Province of Zab, ruled from Nova Luxa. Most of the Dukes were from local noble houses.
