Hereditary Province


Explanation:
Perhaps "Hereditary Province" is not the best translation, but it approaches the idea.
"Capitania" was the designation of the first administrative divisions of Brazil (16th and 17th centuries). Those "capitanias" were ruled by a captain-governor and would pass from father to son (hereditary).
