A protectorate was an autonomous territory that was protected diplomatically or militarily against third parties by a stronger state or entity, in exchange for which the protectorate usually accepted specified obligations, which may varied greatly, depending on the real nature of their relationship. However, it retained sufficient measure of sovereignty and remained a state under the law.
Protectorates of the Star Kingdom and later Star Empire of Manticore on the other hand were territories that were not formally annexed but through treaty or other lawful means, the Crown had jurisdiction.
