 Hereditary peer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dukedom of Cornwall was held formerly by the eldest son of the King of England, and the Dukedom of Rothesay, the Earldom of Carrick, and certain non-peerage titles (Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland) by the eldest son of the King of Scotland.
The Dukedom of Cornwall and that of Rothesay, and the Earldom of Carrick, are special cases, which when not in use are said to lapse to the crown: they are construed as existing, but held by no one, during such periods.
In 1919, King George V issued an Order-in-Council suspending the Dukedom of Albany (together with its subsidiary peerages, the Earldom of Clarence and the Barony of Arklow), the Dukedom of Cumberland and Teviotdale (along with the Earldom of Armagh) and the Viscountcy of Taaffe (along with the Barony of Ballymote).
