Merger with Duce??
Not in the reader's interest. Mussolini is a single case, and not a formal title, neither military nor aristocratic. If duce remains too small to have a page of its own, it should rather redirect to Mussolini, not all kinds of duces that predate his fascism, unlikely to appeal specifically to the reader looking up duce.

Lists too long?
Is there a technical / layouting way of compacting them (like hiding the expanded 'contents' box)? [posted unsigned by 18.104.22.168 ]
- They're not, in fact deliberately limited to historically significant or otherwise notorious dukes; it's precisely because of detailed subsectioning that one can easily navigate to those data one seeks, and pass over what one isn't interested in Fastifex 10:29, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
I think an English explanation of these titles are in order
That's all I have to say.

I've included a bit about King Arthur being called dux bellorum to replace the former Dux Bellorum article, which erroneously claimed that "Dux Bellorum" was a title bestowed by Roman emperors to their supreme commanders, and which I've redirected to here. --Nicknack009 21:20, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I personnaly refer to the Byzantines as Romans, but I understood that wikipedia is following the majority and I was told that the majority believed the Byzantines as post-Roman. Should the small Byzantine section be moved to post-roman? Ciao grazie Mallerd (talk) 09:44, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
moved some usages to disambiguation page
I moved the material on the use of dux in educational settings and as a term of music theory to the disambiguation page, as they don't seem to belong on an SPQR page. The development of dux into the title Duke definitely does belong in the Post-Roman section, as does Mussolini's appropriation of the title (which ought to be elaborated, since it's related to the whole sphere of propaganda that debased the Roman fasces as a symbol of fascism).
