Field Marshal is the highest rank of the AFFS. The AFFS Marshal of the Armies and Prince's Champion are not ranks a soldier can earn, but a position they occupy in the command structure. Holders of those positions do typically hold the rank of Field Marshal.
There are at least fourteen Field Marshals in the Federated Suns: Three for the Capellan and Draconis Marches (total six), four for the Crucis March (total ten), and five who advise the Prince but hold no specific command.

During the Federated Commonwealth's existence, the number of Field Marshals dropped considerably. Instead of commanding a region of space, Field Marshals in the AFFC commanded either a State Command (Federated Suns/Lyran Commonwealth) or a major administrative/non-combat command like the Department of the Quartermaster, Department of Strategy and Tactics, or the Department of Military Intelligence.
