Baron Culloden (named after Culloden near Inverness) is a title that has been created twice, both times for members of the British Royal Family. Its introduction continued the tradition of awarding members of the Royal Family titles from each of the three Kingdoms that made up the United Kingdom: England, Scotland and Ireland.

Baron Culloden, first creation (1801)[edit]

The first creation was on 27 November 1801 for Prince Adolphus Frederick, seventh son of King George III. He was created Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Tipperary and Baron Culloden in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. This courtesy title became extinct on 17 March 1904 at the death of his son Prince George, the second holder.

Baron Culloden, second creation (1928)[edit]

The second creation was on 31 March 1928 for Prince Henry, third son of King George V, who was created HRH Duke of Gloucester, Earl of Ulster and Baron Culloden, again in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[1] The title is currently held by his great-grandson Lord Xan, Baron Culloden, who is the son of Alexander, Earl of Ulster and the fourth in the second creation.
