Duc de Bourbon

(Redirected from Duke of Bourbon)

Duke of Bourbon is a title in the peerage of France. It was created in the first half of the 14th century for the eldest son of Robert of France, Count of Clermont and Beatrice of Burgundy, heiress of the lordship of Bourbon. In 1416, with the death of John of Valois, the Dukes of Bourbon, were simultaneously Dukes of Auvergne. Although the line came to an end in 1527, it is from the Dukes of Bourbon that emerge all ramifications of the House of Bourbon, which include monarchs of France and Spain. After this date, the title was given to several Princes of Condι and sons of the French Royal family.
