The Dukedom of Primo de Rivera (Spanish: Ducado de Primo de Rivera) is a hereditary title in the Spanish nobility. The dukedom was posthumously bestowed on José Antonio Primo de Rivera, founder of the Falangist movement, by General Francisco Franco as head of the Spanish state.

Due to the fact that José Antonio had no children the title devolved to his younger brother Don Miguel and subsequently, for the very same reason, to his nephew Don Miguel Primo de Rivera y Urquijo.[1]
