viscount in Valyria is literally a vice – count. For those counties that use viscounts, a viscount is a high ranking member of the county, usually a baron, who has been given access to the county management table. Viscounts are most useful in grand counties composed of multiple shires.

Viscount is not a title that is currently recognized by the College of Heralds. If it should be accepted in the future, it would likely be a magnate ranked title.
