Roll of the Peerage[edit]

The Argyll title is not on the Roll of the Peerage as updated 1 november 2011 - anyone able to comment? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.224.47.12 (talk) 17:27, 19 January 2012 (UTC)


Disqualified from holding a Scottish seat?[edit]

Quoth the article:

The 5th Duke sat as a member of parliament for Glasgow until his father's accession to the Dukedom in 1761 disqualified him from representing a Scottish seat. He then became the member for Dover until 1766, when he was created as Baron Sundridge and obtained the right to sit in the House of Lords.

Why would his father's accession have disqualified him from holding a Scottish seat, but not an English one? --Jfruh (talk) 04:09, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Coat of Arms[edit]

This is most probably a funny coincidence, but the Argyll coat of arms resembles the symbols of the capital-city of Lisbon, Portugal. See below. Cheers! The Ogre (talk) 13:31, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Numbering[edit]

So if this dukedom of the UK was created in 1892, doesn't that restart the numbering ?Eregli bob (talk) 00:17, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
