Duke of Sessa
Duke of Sessa is a Spanish noble title awarded in 1507 to Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba y Herrera by Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand V of Castile. Its territorial designation refers to an Italian municipality.
Like all Spanish titles, it used to descend according to male-preference cognatic primogeniture. Therefore, it was held by several women. It now descends according to absolute cognatic primogeniture, meaning that the eldest child (regardless of gender) succeeds to the dukedom upon the death of the previous holder.
