King of Spain[edit]

Should this article mention that the current King of Spain uses the title Archduke of Austria despite being a female-line descendent. Emperor001 (talk) 19:50, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Above grand duke?[edit]

What is the basis for the claim that an archduke is a higher title than a grand duke? john k (talk) 13:51, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

MILHIST[edit]

I can't see anything in the article to explain the inclusion of this article in WikiProject Military History, so I have removed the banner. Feel free to contact me on my talk page or the MILHIST community in general at WT:MILHIST if you believe this was not an appropriate course of action.

Ducal Hat[edit]

The text states: 'Archduke (in German Erzherzog) is a title distinct from Grand duke (in German Großherzog) ...' but the caption under the top illustration reads: 'Grand ducal hat, the insignia of the archduke'. If the insignia for grand dukes and archdukes is the same, that should be mentioned in the text. Obviously, this isn't a big issue, but at the moment it's a little confusing as this information (which may or may not be correct) is only given in the caption. If there is overlap between the ranks and titles this should be stated in the text and not crop up almost by chance in a caption. Norvo (talk) 00:38, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
