Duke of Cumberland and Strathearn was a peerage title that was conferred upon a member of the British Royal Family, named after the county of Cumberland, England and after Strathearn, Scotland.

History[edit]

The title Duke of Cumberland had been created three times in the Peerages of England and Great Britain.

The title "Duke of Cumberland and Strathearn" was created in the Peerage of Great Britain. This double dukedom and also the Earldom of Dublin in the Peerage of Ireland were bestowed on Prince Henry, the third son of Frederick, Prince of Wales, and grandson of King George II. Since Prince Henry died without legitimate children, that title became extinct again.

The title Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale was later created in the Peerage of Great Britain
