Married name to match married title[edit]

See discussion concerning maiden versus married name at [1] also at [2]. Daytrivia (talk) 13:01, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Titles[edit]

Countess of Somerset by her first marriage, but she became Duchess of Clarence by her second marriage. A Duchess outranks Countess so I'm wondering why she is titled Countess of Somerset. Is this because she is better known as such? Or does her tomb specifically title her as Lady Somerset? -- Lady Meg (talk) 07:55, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
