The Prince of Sulmona (Italian: Principe di Sulmona) is a noble title in Italy. The title derives its name from Sulmona, a town in Abruzzo.

Originally it was created in 1527, during Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor's reign as King of Naples in recognition of the work done by Charles de Lannoy as Viceroy of Naples[1].

The title was recreated for his nephew Marcantonio Borghese by Philip III of Spain (The King Philip III sold the Principality and the Town of Sulmona to the Borghese Family et remained in this family until the end of feudalism ) who was directly ruling the Kingdom of Naples at the time. The title was recognized to the Borghese Family from the Kingdom of Italy after the unification of Italy.
