A royal duke is a duke who is a member of the British Royal Family, entitled to the style of Royal Highness.
In the United Kingdom, the current royal dukes are HRH the Prince of Wales, who is Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay; HRH the Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Philip), HRH the Duke of York (Prince Andrew), HRH the Duke of Gloucester (Prince Richard), and HRH the Duke of Kent (Prince Edward).
For example, when the current Duke of Gloucester and Duke of Kent are succeeded by their eldest sons, the Earl of Ulster and the Earl of St. Andrews, respectively, those peerages (or rather, the 1928 and 1934 creations of them) will cease to be associated with royalty.

The duke was bound by this act to hold himself in obedience to the legislative decisions of the council, and renounced all right of levying arbitrary taxes or duties on the state.
But the duke of Burgundy was aware that a too great perseverance would end, either in driving the people to despair and the possible defeat of the French, or the entire conquest of the country and its junction to the crown of France.

After the death of Godefroid IV, the title of Duke of Lower-Lorraine went to and fro, with each change on the German throne, between the Counts of Leuven (descendants of Giselbert, the first Duke of Lorraine) and their old Luxembourg enemies, the Counts of Limburg.
Duke Godefroid, who had a malformed spine, was a true supporter of the German Emperor Heinrich IV and therefore an enemy of the Counts of Holland who were at the time engaged in a bitter fight for greater political and economic independence.
On 26 February 1076, Duke Godefroid was near Vlaardingen, and apparently while sitting on the toilet he was attacked by a murderer called Gijsbert who was supposedly hired by our ancestors Count Robrecht "the Frisian" of Flanders and Count Dirk V of Holland.

 Bouillon (Municipality, Province of Luxembourg, Belgium)
In spite of the Prince-Bishop of Liège's protesting he was the legal Duke of Bouillon, Godefroid-Maurice de la Tour d'Auvergne was confirmed as the Duke of Bouillon after the treaty of Nijmegen (1679), and Bouillon remained French until the end of the Ancient Regime.
The very same arms (with a different origin) are used by the city of Leuven, whose municipal flag is therefore the same as the municipal flag of Bouillon, as is of course the national flag of Austria.
His succession as Duke was disputed by his cousin Albert III, Count of Namur, but at first neither contender won, because the German King Heinrich IV appointed his own two year-old son Conrad as the new Duke, clearly demonstrating that Lower-Lorraine had lost its significance as a political entity.
