Quality[edit]

This is a good article, well illustrated.--Shtove 07:37, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Punctuation and Plural[edit]

According to a UK Government page [1] (and Talk:List of Lord Lieutenants of Ireland) the plural of Lord Lieutenant is Lord Lieutenants. Additionally, it seems to be generally hyphenated (Lord-Lieutenant). –Shoaler (talk) 12:15, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

The Times Style Guide shows it with a hyphen and the plural as "Lord-Lieutenants", whereas the Guardian prefers no hyphen and the plural "Lords Lieutenant." Seems we should follow one or the other to be consistent. –Shoaler (talk) 17:25, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Through history, in one of the quirks of history, offices like Lord Mayor and Lord Lieutenant were made plural by pluralising lord rather than Lieutenant. So the plural always has been Lords Mayor and Lords Lieutenant. It may be because the holders of such offices were peers and so it was meant to indicate a plurality of lords. The Times version, frankly, is bullshit. The office is not hypenated. (But then the standard accuracy in The Times since Murdoch took over has long been infamous. The paper is but a poor shadow of the quality it achieved in his past.)

It may be that in some modern usage for modern offices a new form of pluralisation is evolving. But when the Lord Lieutenancy of Ireland existed it was always pluralised as Lords Lieutenant. So even if modern offices of the same name in other countries pluralise Lieutenant rather than Lord, it is irrelevant to this office, which never used that form.

Can you provide some evidence to support that this is the standard usage? john k 20:33, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
What are you after exactly. A very quick scan of the London Gazette shows Lords Lieutenant ~ [2] [3] Alci12 15:45, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Interregnum[edit]

The constitutional arrangements under the English Interregnum (1649-1660) seem to be missing from this and the related articles. See Charles Fleetwood who was Lord Deputy of Ireland (which links to this article) under the Interregnum until 1657 with Henry Cromwell as his deputy and successor (according to their biographical articles on Wikipedia) --Philip Baird Shearer 17:50, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Peerages[edit]

Did he actually created peerages and baronetcies and reward knighthoods. If he could, what prevent him from making himself a duke, other than pressure from the Cabinet? I would think that he just "advise" the King to do those things. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.244.187.154 (talk) 02:22, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
