It is a bit difficult to understand what you are asking, Mohamed, when you do not use the basic rules of grammar. When you make the effort to write complete sentences and use punctuation, others can understand what you mean.  Remember that the word "I" is always capitalized.  A sentence ends with period, question mark, or exclamation mark.


In the US, we do not have lords and ladies.  So I don't know the rules of how those titles are made.  That is not a question of grammar.  I can tell you that a title is capitalized - such as Lord Voldemort.

I am sorry. I have a version of the novel "prisoner of zenda" in school . I saw a sentence in it that i thought it isn't correct. The hero is called Rudolf Rassendyll . His brother is called Robert he is the lord of town they called Burlesdon and it was written like this : "My brother is Lord Burlesdon" . I thought he can only say my brother is The Lord of Burlesdon or my brother is Burlesdon's Lord , that is what i meant . Sorry if i have a bad English it is just that it is not my mother language I am Egyptian .

You don't have to apologize for being a non-native speaker, Mohamed. I only know one language, so you are doing better than me. Practice writing the basics correctly, and it will become easier to move on to the more complicated lessons. When you are told that the word "I" is always capitalized, then always capitalize the word. (Always!) Here is another one to practice: there is no space before a comma or period.
